About this item
Cardinal Fuzz are proud to introduce Trimdon Grange Explosion and their debut Self Titled Long Player. Trimdon Grange Explosion are an psych folk ensemble from North-East London. Comprising Alison Cotton (viola/vocals), Ben Phillipson (guitar/vocals), Mark Nicholas (bass) and Karl Sabino (drums), the quartet formed in the aftermath of the split of acclaimed folk-rock outfit THE EIGHTEENTH DAY OF MAY of whom all four were members.
In 2010 a 7” emerged on The Great Pop Supplement – a cover of Judy Henske & Jerry Yester's 'Raider' b/w 'The Trimdon Grange Explosion' - and then after a further seven year gap, their debut album release saw the light of day, initially as a limited-edition CD-R box package on the Borley Rectory label in Spring of 2017. We are delighted to finally release this acid psych shindig on vinyl, Remastered by Chris Hardman and with hallucinatory artwork by Peckham-based illustrator LUKE DROZD. The self-produced recordings of TRIMDON GRANGE EXPLOSION's eponymous set took place during 2015-2016 in various North London locations.
The 9 eclectic tracks (plus one bonus track on the download too) range from original compositions to acid-tinged group instrumentals to songs from the folk tradition, arranged for electric instruments. TRIMDON GRANGE EXPLOSION is a grand continuation of its previous incarnation's psychedelic fusion of the modal rock of The Velvet Underground – among others – with their own English traditional music roots. Evidently, there was unfinished business. a 500 Pressing presented in a 350gsm Card Sleeve with download code.
