Bill Fay's distrust of the public is not unfounded. After his two recordings "Bill Fay" and "Time Of The Last Persecution" were flopped at the beginning of the seventies, he was dropped by his record company, was not given a foot on the floor anymore and fell into oblivion. The two albums were re-released in 1998. Suddenly it was musicians like Nick Cave, Peter Buck (R.E.M.), Jim O'Rourke or Jeff Tweedy (Wilco) who carried the news of the forgotten English artist into the world. Fay was shocked, confessing in one of his few interviews that he hadn't expected it in his wildest dreams.
MY SLEEPING KARMA - Akasha (edit) (4:48)
Album: Moksha (2015)
MY SLEEPING KARMA's new album is not as easily accessible as its four predecessors. The listener first has to work for his inner beauty. He then finds the typical power of the band, caused by hypnotic guitarlicks. A new addition is the increased use of keyboards. Album of the month!
The overwhelming response to this improbable comeback three years ago is still continuing: A forgotten singer-songwriter, who had released two albums in the early 70s and then made it through four decades as a casual laborer, presents one of the most moving records of recent years out of the blue and is rightly celebrated euphorically by press and audience.
