BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

A. Front

REQUEST

Dalis Car was a musical group formed in 1984 by Peter Murphy (vocalist), Mick Karn (bassist, keyboardist, guitarist, saxophonist) and Paul Vincent Lawford (rhythm construction). The band was formed soon after Murphy and Karn left their former bands (Bauhaus and Japan, respectively). They took their name from a Captain Beefheart song from his album, Trout Mask Replica. Initially, they recorded one album, The Waking Hour (UK No. 84), and released one single, “The Judgement is the Mirror” (UK No. 66).

The recording of the album took place in unusual circumstances, as neither Karn nor Murphy spent much time together in the recording studio, preferring to send tapes back and forth between each other, to work on alone.

    Wow. You’ve knocked me senseless with this one, Paul! To at long last have a proper digital copy of this 12″ is a dream come true! I’d been hoping that Beggars Archive would get around to an expanded reissue of the Dalis Car material, but that’s less necessary now.

    Thank you so very much!

    You’re welcome Robert it was a beast to rip because of all the quiet instrumentation 🙂

    I just did all my conversion (ALAC) and tagging and this now sits proudly next to my other Dalis Car titles in my digital library. Funny thing is, unlike why I usually come here there’s no fabulous extended remix, just a couple of oh so obscure little instrumentals that have only seen light of day from the occasional spin of my 12″.

    If Beggars ever get around to a definitive Dalis Car release, they need look no further than your work here for these tracks! 🙂 Bravo!

    Thanks Paul. Mick Karn (RIP) was a genius. I also love his collaboration with David Sylvian on the single Buoy.

    I was hoping you would post a Michael Jackson 12″. It’s been 5 years today since he passed and it would have made a nice gesture.

    Already had this one planned and it was a difficult one to do. Maybe MJ on Disco Friday.

    Good choice & well done. Worth checking out the posthumous Dalis Car ep InGladAloneness finsished by Peter Murphy & Steve Jansen of Japan after Mick passed away.

    And as Omar say, ‘Buoy’ is a fantastic piece too.

    Just informing: Paul, I don’t know if it’s because of you, but some formerly dead download links from the “Madonna” cathegory, are now alive and kicking.
    In a minute I’ll check what Dalis Car is about.

    Buenas noches

    So looking forward to hearing this piece of music. I am familiar with the group, only by name (I guess it’s because of the name, which Dali, reminds me of the artist). Thanks for putting this out and making the person who requested it very happy. You are an angel granting musical wishes Paul.

    Kind regards as always,

    Jeff

    This is fantastic, always been a huge Japan fan, and this is a great addition to the extended Japan collection. Would love to see some Japan, if you have.
    Thanks for this great track, you have an excellent site, have been following it for some time.

    Awesome, always good to hear records more in the New Wave/Art Pop side. If you liked Dali’s Car, you’ll love Fiat Lux.
