Misha Langley As always, it's hard to pick a favorite, but at the moment it's "Prisoners of War"... Favorite track: Prithee/Prisoners of War/Three Times Daily/Hotel X/ Epilogue.

RTW Somewhat surprisingly I think this one has gone down in history as the quintessential solo Ka-Spel release and I wouldn't necessarily agree but I think there's a really good EP of material here padded out by instrumental loops and slighter bits. But the fact is this presents the sound and quality of the material from the Dots' golden age, with CVA and Maria all around it. In that sense it's a great entry point to Ka-Spel's solo work. My favorite track is "The Baker's Man." Favorite track: Loop 2/The Baker's Man.

An album made with loving care as The Gulf War raged in another part of the World. We watched in horror as the rockets lit up the skies on our primitive TV during long evenings. By day, we recorded."Tanith" is as home-made as it gets; gentle, utterly violent and a frightened lamb on a cross for some of the meaner journalists back in 1991.I stand by it and was delighted to see it remastered and reissued back in 2012 by Cold Spring complete with Elke's wonderful cover painting.This is that expanded version here with 3 new pieces recorded in 2012. Do note that the definitive remaster of this album from 2020 can be found at edwardka-spel.bandcamp.com
