At the turn of the '80s, would-be pop star Gary Knight teamed up with enigmatic art star Cameron Lindo, and theirs was a whispering, sweet, mysterious sound, the warble of Casiotones in Coventry Cathedral. This inventive duo could sound vaster than a full-on band; their unorthodox instrumental versatility gave them a beautiful sonic palette, and their surprisingly erotically charged lyrics gave evidence that nice boys DID. In 1982, In Embrace first recorded the mini-LP The Initial Caress, then swiftly followed it with Passionfruit Pastels, the first LP recorded for Glass Records (the three LPs before it were compilations of one sort or another, or cassette-only releases). It's fitting that the first reissue of Passionfruit Pastels, with three bonus tracks included, should be the first release on the resurrected Glass Redux label. Hey, everyone else from the '80s and '90s has re-formed -- Glass might as well join the party, visit some old friends, and maybe make some new ones.
