Fantasies, Plagues…

Back in 2011 Aidan Baker released a limited LP, Plague of Fantasies, with Blackest Rainbow Records. This album was supposed to have a companion LP, Sorry For What I Said To You In Your Dream, which ended not being released…so, we have made it (along with Plague of Fantasies) available digitally on the BSP bandcamp page as a ‘buy now/pay-what-you-can’ release:

Both of these albums were originally recorded on cassette 4-track back in 2005 (around the same time as Lost In The Rat Maze, released on CD by Consouling Sounds) and digitally re-worked/-mixed/-mastered in 2010. For anyone interested in comparing, some of those earlier, 2005 versions of these tracks are available digitally now on Aidan’s bandcamp:
