Tim has written a new entry in the diary section of this site, where he talks about current and future projects, and a few days later, added a follow up post.

hf2013The Kscope edition of Henry Fool’s long unavailable debut album from 2001 is available to pre-order from Burning Shed.

Remastered by award-winning engineer Andy Jackson, this version comes with new artwork by I Monster’s Jarrod Gosling and a booklet featuring sleeve notes by founder members Tim Bowness and Stephen Bennett.

A distinctive combination of 60’s/70’s Progressive influences (Gabriel-era Genesis/Pink Floyd/Soft Machine), Ambient experiments and hard-hitting group improvisations (King Crimson/Mogwai/Miles Davis), the album was released 12 years prior to its critically acclaimed successor Men Singing.

Alongside Bennett and Bowness, other contributions come from Brian Eno collaborator Peter Chilvers, no-man live guitarist Michael Bearpark, Myke Clifford (sax/flute) and Pendragon/Steve Hackett drummer Fudge Smith.

Two tracks were mixed by Steven Wilson, Tim Bowness’s partner in no-man. Pre-order for 11 November 2013 release.
