LIVES OF ANGELS - Hole In The Sky LP

Lives of Angels was the brainchild of Gerald O’Connell from London, England. At the end of the 1970s, O’Connell had been working on material for Mystery Plane, a band that included his wife Catherine on keyboards and backing vocals. In 1980 the pair of them left to form Lives Of Angels and focus on O’Connell’s own songs, which he felt were more “oblique, atmospheric and evocative” than the narrative style and social commentary of Mystery Plane. The result sounds both of its time, comfortably nestling under the gloomy clouds of British post-punk and goth, and oddly out of time; its homemade quality placing it outside of obvious chronological signifiers as the motorik riffs and spartan drum patterns loop over and over to infinity.

All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios. Each copy comes in custom made jacket designed by Eloise Leigh and includes an 11x11 double-sided insert with liner notes, lyrics and photos. “You have no idea how rewarding it is that people are interested in what we did all those years ago,” says O’Connell. “Catherine had a very happy time doing all that stuff, it was brilliant, and I felt that it was a success artistically. It deserved more attention. Better late than never.”
