The Duke St Workshop With Laurence R. Harvey Tales Of H.P. Lovecraft on Limited Edition Colored LP

Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available

Tales of H.P. Lovecraft is a collaboration between The Duke St Workshop (following the 2014 Cabin 28 album and highly regarded horror actor Laurence R Harvey (The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) (2011), The Editor (2014), The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) (2015)). The album contains two stories (From Beyond (1920) and The Hound (1922)) by the king of cosmic horror, H. P. Lovecraft.

Lovecraft laid the foundations of modern horror; without him the golden age of horror films in the late 20th century would have been very different. The setting is a perfect meeting ground for both actor and group, who bond over their mutual love of horror history. The artists approached the stories like screenplays to create a soundtrack in the mind to rival the narrative and visual thrust of film. Exploring emotional undercurrents and dimensions not present in the original works, these new readings were adapted and edited for the record by poet and friend of the group John "The Baptist" Togher.

Harvey reads the stories with empathy and great skill, weaving through the material with consummate dexterity. The music takes in industrial, library electronics, '80s krautrock, and hushed, Satie-like piano meditations alongside the group's established sound palette. Features artwork by British comic book artist Sean Phillips (DC Comics, Marvel Comics).
