Lost Music: Gravelly Folk Album & The Siegfried Sassoon Track


#1

I’ve searched the whole internet, to zero avail, and now I feel that only DiS can help me find some music. One things needs identifying and acquiring, one just needs acquiring.

  1. Circa 2004-6, I was really into an album. It was really slow, sad folk, good to fall asleep & weep to. I think it was just a male singer songwriter. American, probably. He had an ultra gravelly voice. The only lyric I recall from any of the songs went, “Iiiiiii died of death, blahblahsuffinsuffinblahblahyeah, that’s the way I died of death”. Anyone got any idea?

  2. I need to acquire Shirts vs Skins by The Siegfried Sassoon. I’m sure one of you has it, right? It was inCREDible and somehow fell out of my collection. Idiot.

I lustily await your amazing assistance.

I’m absolutely certain @badmanreturns knows / knew / was in The Siegfried Sassoon

Ha, well, I wasn’t in them but I can certainly contact them. I have all the old mp3s on my old macbook iirc - I’ll fire it up tonight and take a look. I get Hell Is Other Robots stuck in my head all the time, wish their stuff was on streaming sites.

Can’t seen if you can download from my phone…


#5

YES! That’s it! I think I love you. I’m actually in hospital at the moment, and this is exactly what I need to drown out the freakish ambient noises of the ward. Great work.
