THE COVERS ALBUM 'FAWNS WITH FANGS: Selections From the Dark Heart of the Thicket'

'FAWNS WITH FANGS: Selections From the Dark Heart of the Thicket' "The Places have compiled a covers album. This is not the premeditated studio covers album. more of an accidental self-portrait, drawn from a pile of live recordings and home 4-track sessions. Songs that have always been and always will be, by Ronnie Lane, Bert Jansch, Michael Hurley, Elliott Smith, Syd Barrett, The Pretty Things and double-crossed mountain women on their deathbeds, as heard through the Places. Mostly live performances from the independent radio stations, tavern and tap room stages of this cursed plane. Also a couple hard-to-find album tracks, which had been secreted at the end, behind episodes of silence. Handmade and numbered in gatefold sleeve w/ booklet." TO ORDER :
