    The long out of print Michael O'Shea LP, produced by Bruce & Graham & originally released on DOME Records in 1982, has just been re-issued on a limited vinyl edition, via the Dublin label Allchival . It's available to order from Boomkat here:


    We've been waiting for this one for a while, but Michael O’Shea’s sole, eponymous album is finally out this week as an upfront exclusive. Among our all time favourite albums, it's an incredibly singular yet little known gem, produced by Wire’s Bruce Gilbert and Graham Lewis and released on their fledgling Dome label in 1982, showcasing O’Shea’s gifted performance on the Mó Cará, a sorta hybrid dulcimer/zelochord with electric pick-ups. It recalls music by everyone from Alice Coltrane to Dariush Dolat-Shahi, but ultimately it’s truly in a league of its own. Biggest respect to Dublin’s Allchival for this first vinyl reissue, replete with fascinating new sleeve notes. 100% essential!
