Mike Cooper

“Forbidden Delta Planet Blues”

Linear Obsessional is delighted to present this album of two recent pieces by the legendary British folk/blues/world/avant garde guitarist Mike Cooper.
“Forbidden Delta Planet Blues” is a long form work built from over lapping loops and featuring some beautiful Hawaiian style slide guitar.
“The Pain Was Bad, But The Tuna Good” is a spellbinding live solo performance recorded at London’s 100 Years Gallery. A solo for a steel resonator guitar (and some voice) which explores all the nuances of the instrument’s considerable cultural baggage, with breathtaking extended technique (bowing, electric fan) and a fascinating stream of invention- it lives up to Cooper’s science fiction/trad interface admirably.
