ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
England’s psych-pop guru releases new album

“Gothic-psych-baroque-rocker waxing demented in a way only an Englishman can...impeccable.” (Goldmine, USA).

England’s psych-pop guru Paul Roland, described by one-time label mate Robyn Hitchcock as ‘the male Kate Bush’, releases his new rock album ‘Re-Animator’ on Italian label Black Widow this OCTOBER (BWR 097). You can view the cover of the album at www.blackwidow.it (see under ‘Future Projects’)

‘Re-Animator’ features several songs with an H.P.Lovecraft theme and includes contributions from musicians who have recorded with Caravan, Jimi Hendrix and Steve Hillage.

Those who relish Paul’s atmospheric tales of Victorian serial killers, mad women in the attic, Dickensian underworld characters and eccentric Edwardian inventors will know what forbidden pleasures await them for the occult figures strongly in Roland’s fantasy world. But this continuing fascination with the supernatural is no mere window dressing. Roland is the author of 13 best selling books on the subject and the creator of the Kabbalah Cards (a form of psychological tarot cards now available from www.amazon.co.uk and www.amazon.de).

“Roland’s gaslight world is one of quaint but dark English folklore, sinister Victoriana and bittersweet stories...“ (Uncut, UK)

“Genius at play! Roland must be ranked with the most creative and unique songwriters of his generation...the work of an exceptional talent. If Shakespeare, Poe and Conan Doyle were alive today, they would surely have some Roland in their record collections. Unfortunately they’re dead...what’s your excuse?” Bucketful of Brains, UK

“Roland is a maestro of melancholy and madness… ornate gothic/baroque songwriting and quintessentially English pop-psych dementia…princely stuff.” (Ptolemaic Terrascope)

more rock, still great
I've just listened to my copy of this album and must say it is as good as always from Paul Roland, who happens to be one of my favourite artists. i mostly listen to industrial and neofolk but am open to all good music, and Paul Roland fits in this last category. It is scandalous that he has not gotten more recognition yet in the music-business, although i was happily surprised to find him included in the compilation 'Looking for Europe, the neofolk compendium' though he is not part of that scene. He does have some folk influences, but this album is more rock. He is obviously able to adept literature to interesting songs, as he does here with Lovecraft. This he had already proven with many songs such as Madeleine (based on Edgar Allan Poe), Nosferatu and Last Coach to the Borgo Pass (both based on Dracula). The adaptations are fittingly eerie, with the exception of Swamp Girl which is a corny lovesong in form (and to me the weakest bit on the record). Anyway, a great album, again, and certainly a must buy in my eyes.

the return of the master
For all who know,and especially for those who don't,here is possibly the best single Paul Roland album ever(or at least the best one you can find for less than a car payment). The sound is at once,the lushest of his albums,as well as being the heaviest,at times.A stellar production! Many highlights to choose from,whether it's a full-on psych of the title track,the hellfire pounding of Cthullu or the eastern epic Abdul Alhazred/Assassins....more arcane references,more elegant pop songs(Charles Dexter Ward,Taliesin) Really,the only moment that breaks the spell is Swamp Girl,pretty harmless tho'...gotta laugh. In time,Paul's entire catalog will be available again,w/ extras,so please make the effort to find this and other gems.
