V/A The October Country LP


Great comp. album on Nate Starkman & Son of US indie/underground artists.
Dark Arts is actually Stephanie Payne. Her first release 'A Long Way To Brigadoon' has been posted here before. Two albums followed in the 90's, the 'Carnival Of Lost Souls' and 'Something Once Whispered To Cava'.
Marnie was a member of Party Boys but later went solo. Her first album 'You Hurt Me' is well worth tracking down despite being hard-to-find these days. Two more albums followed in the 90's which I never heard before. In 2004 a kind of best of comp. was released containing the songs of The October Country.
Autumnfair was a dark postpunk band from ther late 80's. A 10" was released in 1990. In 2002 Mobilization released a discography CD although 'Naomi' is not on it.
The Soul Brothers can also be found on the 'Viva Los Angeles II' comp. They released a few cassette-only albums.

This compilation is one of my all times favourites, the whole record is at a very high level, all the songs are excellent and all the groups (even if most of them are almost unknown) are really interesting.
I've a request for you: con you kindly re*up the mini-LP and the CD of Dark Arts, please?
Thanks in advance.
All the best.
Carlo
