At the turn of the '80s, enigmatic would-be pop-star Gary Knight teamed up with enigmatic art-star Cameron Lindo, and theirs was a whispering, sweet, mysterious sound, like the warble of Casiotones in a cathedral -- Coventry Cathedral to be precise. You could tell that these guys walked hand-in-hand with their girlfriends in the ruins at midnight, and even if that wasn't true it might as well have been, though a sudden attack of bongo-fury may have sometimes interrupted love's young dreamers -- these things could and did happen. 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. And frequently too. Originally released in 1982, the duo's initial mini-LP, The Initial Caress, is now released on CD for the first time. This first-ever reissue was digitally remastered by original producer John A. Rivers and includes six previously unreleased bonus demos. Housed in card gatefold sleeve with 12-page booklet full of notes and pictures.
