Paul Haig - Metamorphosis

Les Disques du Crepuscule
(TWI096: 708527031582)



Metamorphosis is a comprehensive compilation of singles, sessions and embryonic experiments recorded by Paul Haig between 1981 and 1982, spanning the end of cult band Josef K and the beginning of his polished pop solo career.
 
Disc 1 gathers together various singles recorded for Crepuscule in 1982, including Running Away, Justice, Blue For You and the EP Swing In 82, the latter a bold foray into Sinatra territory. The extended 12” versions of Running Away and Justice appear here on CD for the first time, along with compilation tracks such as Mad Horses and Christiania, and rare demo versions of Luck and On This Night of Decision.
 
Disc 2 features several projects recorded as Rhythm of Life, including four tracks recorded live on a Crepuscule package tour in February 1982, and two rare RoL singles on which Paul collaborated with infamous artist Sebastian Horsley, and fellow Edinburgh musician Stephen Harrison. Also included are all eight tracks from Drama, a DIY cassette of experimental electronica issued by Paul in 1981.
 
Cover art by Benoit Hennebert. Booklet includes archive images and track by track commentary by Paul Haig.
