Differently Desperate

(Ad Hoc) Used CD $4.00

2007 reissue the 1991 studio album of diverse avant-pop songs by Bill Gilonis (Art Bears, The Work), Catherine Jauniaux (Fluvial), Charles Hayward (This Heat, Camberwell Now) and Tom Cora (Skeleton Crew, Curlew) — with guests David Thomas, Amos, Chris Cochrane, Tim Hodgkinson, Hahn Rowe and Rick Brown, among others. Even though Rock In Opposition bands were known for their seriousness, here they branch out into a lighter, more whimsical side of the genre, exploiting pop idioms and structures. There’s even a cover of The Archies’ “Sugar Sugar.” Hole drilled into digipak
