The Hunting Party - Velvet Garden 7"


Mysterious band on Times' Movement Records label. Times of Venus In Furs released his first recordings on Movement. This is the only thing I know of that wasn't by Venus In Furs although Times plays keyboards on this one.
Great gloomy postpunk sound on this 7" by The Hunting Party. Tracks are quite long and this 7" plays at 33RPM. Probably would sound better on the 12" format.

Fantastic, love these songs. The not-so-good quality makes it sound very charming and like 1981, imho the best year in music. Reminds me of "Bouquet Of Steel" or "Your Secret's Safe With Us" bands. Thank you for this!!
