The Fates Furia Limited Vinyl LP

· Originally scheduled for release on Halloween 1985 this
privately pressed all female post-punk / broken-folk
collective concept album was resurrected from the ashes
of the original line-up of The Fall and Velvet Underground
singer Nico’s Blue Orchids backing band at the command of pioneering Manchester female punk icon Una Baines before disappearing into the annals of UK punk purgatory.
· Comprising all the DIY traits and snarling attitudes of
Manchester’s smartarsed punk retaliation, with haunting
mechanical folk, pastoral drones and a back story that
unites sleeve artist Linder Sterling (Ludus), Spider King,
Martin Hannett, Tony Baines, Martin Bramah and John Cooper Clarke with the 16th century Pendle Witches, this virtually unknown album is a vital missing piece in Manchester’s self-help anti-pop industry. Lost in the ether, lauded by collectors and likened by Mark E. Smith to the Third Ear Band, this unclassifiable arty-fact renders tags like ‘Pagan punk’ utterly redundant.
· Seemingly unaffected by the passing years since its original release, ‘Furia’ stands alone as a unique vision and testament to its communal casting of fragile mischief - set apart from the era of its conception and eschewing tags
like avant-folk, pagan-punk and pastoral-drone by existing
within its own spectral significance. It’s hard to imagine a
similar record from then but certainly wholly conceivable
that such a record would come to pass now.
