"Here we finally have a first time vinyl issue of Bathysphere, the debut solo album by Brian Crook (of such estimable bands as the Renderers, Terminals, Max Block, Scorched Earth Policy, etc). It was originally released on CD in 2000 on the Medication label (no relation). Bathysphere stalks the same haunted terrain as the Renderers but with an even more isolated and experimental feel. Crook expertly uses his accent and voice to tease out the nuance of the weird phrasing, odd timing and lyrics of his tunes. Tom Lax of Siltbreeze called this album Brian's Like Flies on Sherbert in reference to the legendarily damaged solo album Alex Chilton recorded after Big Star. Includes guest spots by Robbie Yeats of the Dead C and Peter Stapleton of Dadamah, Pin Group, Terminals, etc. A hand numbered limited edition of 400 copies in beautiful silk screened covers with Meds version of an On the Beach style inner jacket. Not to be missed."
