Advance Base - A Shut In's Prayer

This record has been out there almost a year now so naturally I have only just got a copy. Advance Base is Owen Ashworth's new project, (or at least it was last year) he of the (almost) legendary Casiotone For The Painfully Alone who have cropped up in these pages many times over the last nine years. Actually there is a new Casiotone record as well. Well not strictly new a it is a live album recorded back in 2010 and is available now through Orindal Records as is the Advance Base album "A Shut In's Prayer" which features ten brand new (ish) tracks from the mighty Ashworth who has clearly not lost his touch when it comes to penning a decent ditty. Ok here's the technical bit I'm sure you're all waiting for. The record comes on very attractive marble coloured  vinyl which apparently weighs 150 grams and is limited to 100 copies, or at least it was last year, you might be lucky to find one now. If there is a new record in 2013 I'll be sure and tell you all about it next year.
Advance Base will be playing at the Empty Bottle in Chicago on 30th March with Parenthetical Girls and Jimmy Whispers.
