Bellerophontic Letter, The: Speak Softly To Your King, For His Breath is Now Weak b/w Come Hither, I Have A Cup of Poison...

Transsiberian Mile# 19
Released May 2003

7" vinyl. Nicolas Bragg... Handís down, heís our man about town. He has lent his undeniable talents to the vastly under appreciated noise-pop band Blaise Pascal, the genre defying Kicking it with Coho, and most recently gave Dan of Destroyer a musical backdrop worthy of the verbosity on the This Night album. Meanwhile, Vera Gamboa emerges from a self-imposed exile from the local music quagmire, having shaped the scene over a decade ago with the seminal band Kid Champion. With her maverick guitar style, she is rumoured to be the true architect behind the shamble-rock of Citroen ­ which also features Nicolas and the legendary thunder of Fisher Rose. Nicolas and Vera now give us 6:14 and 4:39 of fragile bent ambience and out jazz-pop beauty on the two sides of this clear, lathe-cut, ltd to 50, slice of vinyl. No reserve.
