Beauty Reaps The Blood Of Solitude
Durtro

A Neo-Folk project by Current 93 member Michael Cashmore released in 1994.
It’s also a (dark) star-studded affair, with Death in June’s Douglas P., Rose McDowall, David Tibet and our favorite wounded nurse, Stephen Stapleton.
It’s a very mellow, folky outing; perfect for the time of the year when the leaves turn orange and the sun dips low in the sky. It’s considerably mellower than most of the constituent contributor’s bands and even includes a lovely string section. I actually ran across this album because it contains a cover version of The Wicker Man Song, sung beautifully by Rose McDowall. Proof that Neo/Death-Folk can be both dark and beautiful.

  6. Much appreciated.
    Have always been a Nature And Organisation/Michael Cashmore fan (even though his new solo EP is only so-so).
    However, this album is a classic in it’s beauty.
