Dark Arts - Carnival Of Lost Souls CD

Thanks to Rainy Day Sponge for this contribution.
This is the second release of Dark Arts. The 'Long Way From Brigadoon' mini-album was released in 1986 on Chicago label Ruthless Records (Effigies, Naked Raygun, Big Black,... ). It took 5 years for the follow-up. 'Carnival Of Lost Souls' was released on vinyl and CD on Nate Starkman & Son, orignally a US label but this one was issued in Germany. The CD has 3 bonus tracks (the last 3 songs) and is harder to find than the LP.
Dark, ethereal wave with some Eastern influence. Core member is Stephanie Payne.
Dark Arts also appear on the 'October Country' comp. LP.

Many thanks to both of you!

I sent emails thru the band's website and MySpace spanning a 2 year period asking how I can buy even a CDR, but no responses on my 3-4 requests.
