Astral Social Club ‎– "#1" - (Self Released CD-r) 2005

Neil Campbell's solo and small group outings post-Vibracathedral Orchestra project.
Its less dependant on the Drone, and even veers towards the 'ambient House' end of the toilet on track four.
I assume Campbells moniker for this project alludes to a fantasy version of the Northern English phenomenon of the 'Working Mens Club', full of Flat Caps, stale ale, and cigarette smoke....I was gonna say Fag smoke,but there were absolutely zero Homosexuals in Northern England until very recently.Just like there are No Gays in Iran. Christ knows what went on in those male bogs back in the seventies!?
The Astral Social Club is an antidote to all those Racist comedians and cheapo organists who provided the entertainment to these 'Working Class' morons. I'd have loved to see the reaction Neil Campbell would have received if by some impossible quirk of fate he was booked as the entertainment at a Working Mens Club in Scunthorpe, for example. Blood would have flowed.
If you are unfamiliar with the strange world of the W.M.C., also known as being 'posh', watch this clip from the British TV version, "The Wheeltappers and Shunters Social Club" and if you want the uncensored version, watch Bernard Manning at his very worst.
Now you know why Brits are weird.

Hello jaypee, the link seems to be fine there have been well over 50 downloads so far, so it works. Sometimes Mediafire directs you to amazon and shit like that. Just keep tryoing and on the third or fourth attempt it lets you through.
