About this item

Care in the Community recordings release a 7" single of Lark’s Can I Colour In Your Hair featuring a flip side dub version by renowned DJ and producer Andrew Weatherall, adding to past re-workings of Lark songs by artists such as Scritti Politti’s Green Gartside, Erol Alkan and producer Brendan Lynch (Primal Scream).

The label released Lark’s first two albums; the “sharp and clever” (Quietus) debut ,Shop, and the purely solo effort of song writer and front man Karl Bielik, I Don’t Got, which Uncut noted “...throws up myriad references - Daniel Johnston, Tom Waits’ junkyard jazz, early Human League - but the wonky, unsettling world it creates is completely Bielik’s own.” (4/5).

Can I Colour In Your Hair dates from the period that formed Lark’s debut and was always intended for its own vinyl cut. While the Andrew Weatherall version that followed, a while later, featured in his BBC6 music 6 mix and gained traction in his club sets, the physical record has proved elusive until now.

Can I colour In Your Hair is coinciding with the release Larks next album, The Last Woman,on Standard Lamp Records.
