Tym Records 046 Joel Silbersher - Ltd Ed 7 inch
Joel Silbersher has been part of the Australian music scene since the mid eighties when he wrote one of the greatest songs ever at the age of 15 with his band GOD.
In 2002 Joel released, what I consider to be, one of the greatest Australian albums ever recorded. Greasy Lens is a collection of honest, heartfelt and wonderful tales of love, loss and life set to mostly acoustic, stripped back music with an honesty and humour that runs through all of Joel's work and mesmerizing vocals that seems somehow at odds with Joel's previous work.
Side A is a different version of a song (featuring Gareth Liddiard and Mike Noga) that appeared on this wonderful album. Side B is a Richard Thompson cover.
Joel took these tracks and mixed them with Roger Bergodaz to be released on this limited edition 7". It was mastered for vinyl and sent off for the (long) process of getting it pressed into that deserving beautiful and soulful analogue material. Cover artwork was done by Cathy Stephens after Joel had an idea and sent some "selfies" for Cathy to illustrate from.
