003. EIAFUAWN - Birds in the ground LP
"Lost your patience / lost your temper / lost your coffee (with cream) / all over me."
My loving relationship with EIAFUAWN began more than five years ago with that line. Well, that line and the music that accompanied it. I had four of his songs that I played over and over again. After some time I got a CD with The Modulator Hustle EP along with some other songs, most of which found their way onto the Birds in the ground CD.
Even before I played the Birds CD itself over and over again I had blurted out that I wanted to release it on vinyl. Never in a million years would I have imagined that it would take me three of those to release a record. There were some bumps on this long road, but you know what? "It doesn't matter," as Jacko said. He also said: "Showin' how funky strong is your fight". Still, it simply does not matter. This is one of the best records I have ever heard and I am grateful to be a small part in getting more people to discover it.
First press is on 180 grams of black vinyl. 520 copies were made. That's more than 90 kilos of music. Brendan Monroe did the amazing artwork for it.
