It’s with great pleasure that I announce the release of ‘A Crooked Thorn’ by Restaurnaut. This is his second release on Almost Halloween Time Records and the first lathe cut we have ever released. So I’m really excited. Restaurnaut does make horse music and I love what he does. Through the years and the works of some of my favourite record labels such as Blackbean And Placenta Tape Club, Folktale and People In A Position To Know I’ve grown a passion for these weird objects called lathe cuts. They sound great and they look beautiful. The one here has been cut by my dear friend Carlos that runs the wonderful Analog Ghost Recordings label and shares with me the same love for music. We’ve known each other for years, but we have finally seen each other last summer in the United States for the first time. We met at a Refrigerator, Wckr Spgt, Lou Barlow show in Pomona. Could have ever been a better place to finally meet one of your friends? I don’t think so. This lathe cut is born that day. Restaurnaut was there too, we saw each other for the first time. ‘A Crooked Thorn’ is a limited edition of 40 copies and all the sleeves are going to be handdrawn in the style of Almost Halloween Time Records.
