Don – Bradshaw Leather :: Distance Between Us


“What the fuck is this?” This is usually the first thing that someone who sees this album says. It’s definitely a strange egg, one of the most bizarre records you ‘ll meet in your life. And if the front cover it’s not insane enough, with Don Bradshaw Leather dazzled with black makeup, proposing his hands, as if inviting you to a precipitation in a dark lunatic world where nothing is sure, then you will surely be convinced by the back cover and the rest photos.

Satanism? Sexism? Hippism? Japanese theater No or Kabuki? What else you want? The music is an aural hell, probably Lucifer’s favorite soundtrack

Satanism? Sexism? Hippism? Japanese theater No or Kabuki? What else you want? The music is an aural hell, probably Lucifer’s favorite soundtrack.The four tracks (each side a song or something like that), are dense, swirling and hellish tapestries of blurred instrumentation and squawking female voices deep buried. Each song is different mood, involving drums, percussions, piano, mellotron, lots of reverb and clever layering. Full experimental and avant-garde, almost Krautrock, but for sure unique. And as the time goes by, you realize that you had been involved in a ritual, you feel a little afraid and your mind begins to make strange thoughts. It’s true what I heard or a quote of my imagination?… And the distance goes on!
