Product Details

Two brand new and exclusive tracks from Los Angeles, CA juggernaut IDES OF GEMINI. "Cathage" inhabits side A. It begins with a doomy, acoustic summoning of the spirits of a barren world. Invocation complete, the band goes full tilt into their brand of overdriven power and command, charging onward and upward through forest and sky, dragging the doomed, sorrowful carcass of humanity itself into light. Written and recorded after "Old World New Wave" (Neurot/Sige), the track offers another brilliant moment in the bands beautifully evolving sound. Side B is one of the most stunning and emotionally stirring covers of "Strange Fruit" ever put to tape. Written as a poem by Abel Meeropol in 1937, and set to music famously by Billie Holiday in 1939, the song stems from Meeropols original protest piece against the racial lynchings that marred the early 20th century in America. It has been covered many times over since (including versions by NINA SIMONE, LOU RAWLS, ANNIE LENNOX, JEFF BUCKLEY. SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES, DIANA ROSS, TORI AMOS, and countless others). IDES OF GEMINI dug deep on this one, perfecting a uniquely somber and haunting arrangement the poem/song has simply never seen.
