'InGladAloneness' - Pre Order

Dalis Car 'InGladAloneness' is now available to pre-order from Burning Shed http://www.burningshed.com/store/artrock/

Official release date: April 5th

Respected for his innovative approach to the fretless bass and his groundbreaking work with Japan/Rain Tree Crow, Kate Bush, David Torn and others. Mick Karn died on the 4th of January, 2011.

Initiated by Peter Murphy, Karn's final work during his lifetime saw the unexpected resurrection of the duo's cult mid-1980s project, Dali's Car.

Conceived during the final months of Karn's life, the resulting 5 track EP features contributions from friends and regular musical collaborators Steve Jansen, Jakko M Jakszyk and Theo Travis.

InGladAloneness is a glorious testament to a unique vision tragically cut short by illness.

The release date coincides with the 9th birthday of Mick's son, Metis.

First of all thank you to everyone who has sent messages of condolence and support since Mick's passing on the 4th January. As you can imagine it remains a difficult time for us all and I've struggled to find the words to post here.

For now I would like to extend my thanks for all the donations received to the MK Appeal. They were invaluable in providing support for Mick and his family during those last 7 months. It allowed them to relocate to London to receive better care and treatment as well as be close to friends. Thank you so very much for your generosity.

Mick's final work has yet to be released and is a collaboration with Peter Murphy as 'Dalis Car 2'. The duo were reunited in a studio in Oxford at the end of September last year to begin work and four tracks were completed over the ensuing months - a slow process due to Mick's declining health. Steve has just finishing mixing the four tracks which will be released as an EP.

More news to follow soon on this including release date.
