Archbishop Kebab -Beyond Ma Ken-(Trottel Records-Hungary-1993)

The second LP by this original Scottish band, I have already posted their first album released in 1989.
Archbishop Kebab was a Scottish Avant-Hardcore collective formed in 1986 in Edinburgh. They had a 13-year life span up to 1999.
1989 saw the release of their first LP, produced by Tim Ellis (Jackdaw With Crowbar) and the start on the first of many European tours they shared with likeminded groups - a.o. The Ex, Dog Faced Hermans, Badgewearer, Dawson and the Stretchheads.
In 1993 they released their second LP 'Beyond Ma Ken' recorded in the studio of the Hungarian label Trottel Records.
Then came along 'Heeliegoleerie And Scunnered (but cheerie)' partly recorded in Italy; the final Album 'Bellyhunting', recorded in 1997. (info from Discogs).
In this album some crazy free jazz core influences take over their amazing post-no wave hardcore yet they remain an exquisite avant-guard phenomenon. 
Enjoy it.
