Peter J. Cox - Running Away With Yourself LP
"It's safe to say that original copies of Peter J. Cox's 'Running Away With Yourself’ LP are scarcer than a kipper with legs. Brinley Farthing, lead archivist with Blaggards Mystic Emporium, reckons it was pressed in a DIY vanity run of 100, with artwork hand-mounted by Cox himself, in the year 1979. In this business, an accurate backstory is everything. And be that as it may, the pickled punters at Dosh as proud to present this cracking reissue in the 3rd decade of the 21st century.
For those unfamiliar, 'Running Away With Yourself' sounds like the results of a Pink Fairies (or Groundhogs) fan who ran face-first into a brick. A one-man wrecking crew, quaffing & cursing the sacred nectar of Rock, one scrumpy pint at a time. You can practically hear the sulfate sizzling on his tongue as this masterpiece shreds your ears. Or as we're fond of saying here, 'bloody-minded wins again'. Pressed in an edition of 250, this blazing solo opus not only keeps good company with the aforementioned influencers but also stands tall alongside compadres such as Ron Warren Ganderton/Sound Ceremony, Afflicted Man, John The Postman & Legendary Stardust Cowboy. If you think you've heard it all, you haven't. But with this, you’’re one step closer."—Seabert Liversausage, for Dosh
