Invisible Opera Company of Tibet

Live at Sonic Rock Solstice 2011

Dakini DKRCD107 (2011)

Very well recorded tight, live Invisibops. Excellent surprise release. Recorded at everybody's favourite home-grown festival earlier this year (remember small is beautiful chaps - keep it small). Spacey, rocky, funny, optimistic album - all you would expect from a Invisible band, whatever form they take - and of course there is more than a lick or two of deep Gongishness here and there, and especially in a very good version of 'Tried So Hard'. Full colour gatefold card sleeve.

Also available directly from the Invisibles themselves at:- www.brianabbott.info
