STILL FALLS THE RAIN

BAND OF PAIN – 7″

The A Side of this record, “Still Falls The Rain” uses the poem printed on the inside gatefold sleeve of the first Black Sabbath album. The poem is read by Lucy Cotter and Andrew Liles plays guitar, with keyboards, electronics and loops by Steve Pittis.

500 copies only, pressed on heavy purple vinyl and available from Easy Action http://easyaction.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&path=61&product_id=359

PRESS RELEASE

After an absence of a good few years, Band Of Pain return with a 7” single for Easy Action.
Steve Pittis: “Since I got the first Black Sabbath LP when I was 12 years old, the poem inside the gatefold has held a huge fascination for me. I’d read it over and over again, looking at the sleeve, and of course listening to the record. It kept occurring to me that they never used it in any lyrics, so 45 years later, it was time to put that right.”

The A Side of this record, “Still Falls The Rain” features that poem, read beautifully by Lucy Cotter, along with Pittis’ atmospherics and Nurse With Wound’s Andrew Liles’ blistering guitar. All research seems to say that the writer of the poem remains anonymous, so if you’re out there, we hope you like it.

Side B’s “Funhouse (For Karla)” deals with the gruesome misery of an execution chamber and is a powerful journey into the horrors of those barbaric places.
