Fledg'ling reissues Invisible Means, the second oddball masterpiece from four of the world's finest experimental master musicians, originally released in 1990 on Windham Hill Records. This was the follow-up (and only release by this group) to the much better-known Live, Love, Larf & Loaf album, released on Rhino Records in 1987. John French was the original drummer with Captain Beefheart's Magic Band, Fred Frith is an experimental composer and founder of the art-rock ensemble Henry Cow, Henry Kaiser is an innovative experimental guitarist and composer, and Richard Thompson is a founding member of Fairport Convention. Together, these legendary musicians from the U.S. and the UK conjure up a heady mix, covering a bewildering variety of genres, from folk and R&B to avant-garde and comic opera. Underpinning the whole album is the extraordinary level of their musicianship. Amongst the highlights are John French's hilarious "Now That I Am Dead," in which a deceased musician discovers death is the career boost he's being waiting for, and Richard Thompson's remarkable "Begging Bowl" and the simply stunning "Killing Jar." Fledg'ling Records is proud to present this newly re-mastered CD, including a previously-unreleased live bonus track.
