PRE-ORDER ITEM — EXPECTED TO ARRIVE BY JULY 25, 2019, BUT DELAYS ARE POSSIBLE. Any regular in-stock items ordered at the same time (in the same shopping cart) will be held aside and sent with your pre-ordered goods as one shipment. Orders with multiple pre-orders will be sent as one order, when all of the items in the order are available. If you want the order to ship immediately, or want your pre-ordered items to be sent out as soon as they arrive here, rather than in a group, you must order them separately. PAYMENT WILL BE TAKEN WHEN YOU COMPLETE CHECKOUT.
Two Daughters was Anthony Burke and a mysterious Paul. They were recording in Brixton around 1980-1982 and were closely connected to the Industrial Records and Throbbing Gristle gang.
They recorded a debut tape called “Ladder of Souls”, released on their own Methane Music in 1980. Their one and only LP “Kiss The Cloth / Gloria” was released in 1981 on Anthony & Paul Records, a sub-division of United Dairies Records, the label run by Stephen Stapleton of Nurse with Wound.
The LP was subsequently reissued on United Dairies in 1987 as UDT026. Two Daughters have also appeared on two other releases.
A substantially edited version of ‘Return Calls – We Are’ can be found on the Cherry Red compilation, “Perspectives and Distortion”.
The music and its unique percussion-driven style of ambient and experimental, in the vein of bands like O Yuki Conjugate, still holds the test of time. Anthony passed away in 2004.
