Limited edition cassette release (30 copies) on Concrète Tapes, who describe it thus:
"St James Infirmary is (mostly) Northumbrian polymath G.W Lang: new album A Heap of Broken Images sees the 30-odd year old project at it’s most psychedelic and expansive.
One minute dancing round a fire with an acid-fried celtic sex cult, the next sat at the bar at 3am in a smoke-filled jazz club, via some marvelously sideways pop songs: Lang doesn’t stay still in one form for the whole 45 minutes, with only a keen ear for melody and offbeat instrumentation holding the ship together.
Available on a limited run of 30 clear cassettes with hand-printed wraparound sleeve and labels (and on MP3) from bandcamp – the cassette also features a bonus tune that won’t be available on any other format."
