Inspired by the tradition of prison work songs discovered by Alan Lomax and others, this exciting recording of Fred West’s confessions set to a folk loop, marries the ethnological acne/acme of the 1960s with the relentless tattoo of Fred’s exterior monologue. Female slates. The perfect soundtrack for summer, digging a patio or other confessional-type activities. Is Fred improvising with 12 versions of himself or is it socialist realism of a profound new type? No answers yet. Be patient.
