Careless Hands – Looking For A Secret / New Lamps For Old (7″)

carelesscovAnother obscure 7″ from an obscure band. Kind of proto-shoegaze with dub influences. Know nothing about it apart that it’s on a indie label, “Flying Kite Records” was out in 1982 and has some dwaddle about Arabian Knights and Aladdin on the back sleeve. It’s a double A side with the hippy, trippy “New Lamps For Old.” Β The main track would be something Duritti Column would approve, reverbed guitars and whispered vocals. Both tracks start off a bit noisy on the static side but bear with them!
