Shock Headed Peters - Not Born Beautiful LP
As requested awhile ago. My first post here were the first 2 12"s of Shock Headed Peters. This album was posted on Are Friends Electric but this blog is long gone. Here's your chance to grab this masterpiece again.
Shock Headed Peters was formed by Karl Blake after the split of Lemon Kittens. He released a solo album 'Prehensile Tales' and then formed Shock Headed Peters. Other members included Ashley Wales from Five Or Six and The Fast Set, and Mark Rowlatt of Metabolist. Also guest appearance of Crystalle Quim, nom de plume of Diana Rogerson.
A very diverse album, not really in common with the post-industrial scene showing Karl Blake's fascination of 70's hardrock but taking it to a whole new level.
One of the best albums released in the 80's. Too bad this hasn't been reissued, although there's a CD version as well but I don't know when it was released.
