Editorial Reviews

Hugely respected for his innovative approach to the fretless bass and his groundbreaking work with Japan/Rain Tree Crow, Kate Bush, David Torn and others, Mick Karn died on the 4th of January, 2011. Initiated by Peter Murphy (Bauhaus), Karn's final work during his lifetime saw the unexpected resurrection of the duo's cult mid-1980s project, Dali's Car. Conceived during the final months of Karn's life, the resulting 5 track MCD recalls the exotic Eastern-tinged Art Pop sensibility of Dali's Car's fondly remembered 1984 album, The Waking Hour, while also possessing an elegiac quality which fittingly evokes the sad circumstances under which the material was written and recorded.
Driven by Karn's dense and compelling bass and bassoon patterns and Murphy's singular voice, the songs contain lyrics that emotionally echo Murphy's response to Karn's condition and suggest musical directions the project might have pursued had it continued as a creative concern. Both Karn and Dali's Car distinctively combined the sophisticated and the primitive to produce a challenging music with an instinctive and heartfelt emotional core. InGladAloneness is a glorious testament to a unique vision tragically cut short by illness.

The Waking Hour was something of a curious creation, a one-off project between bassist Mick Karn (formerly of Japan), vocalist Peter Murphy (formerly of Bauhaus), and rhythms by Paul Vincent Lawford which bore little relationship to any of the artist's previous bands or work. Propelled by Karn's expressive fretless bass work and Murphy's impressionistic lyrical content The Waking Hour was by turns dark, mysterious, and evocative. It would point to future directions that both Karn and Murphy would explore further in their solo work, but my and large The Waking Hour was something of a cult record typically acquired only by hardcore fans of both artists. But Karn and Murphy apparently were often at odds while working together and neither spoke much of Dalis Car nor did they perform material from it following it's release. Years passed and Dalis Car lived on only in the memory of dedicated fans.

It was with considerable surprise that in 2010, some 26 years later, that Murphy indicated he and Karn were reuniting and working on a follow up recording. By this time however Karn was ill with cancer, an illness that would claim him mere months later, and which meant "In Glad Aloneness" would be limited to a mere five songs. Lawford also returned, lending a hand with congas and Karn's fellow Japan member Steve Jansen lent a hand to mix the tracks.

Sadly this is a poor representation of what could have been. The first Dalis Car album was an amazing piece of music that was unique and well crafted. This EP falls short of the first effort. The songs did not grab my attention and sounded lanquid. No doubt the disaster that struck had undermined the quality, but Peter could have put forth greater effort and finished the project in the spirit of Mick.

I've been a long time Peter Murphy fan, and when this album was in the offing I followed the story via maginzines and webblogs. The album is great! I was afraid it would be very 'contemporary' but it is true to the Dali's car sound! If you're a Peter Murphy fan, or a Dalis car fan, I would strongly recommend this!

the first one is a classic and a work of pure genius and this one is good and only reminds you of the other one, and they even coveted a song from the first album
