AFFLICTED MAN - I'm Off Me Ead LP
“I’m Off Me ‘Ead is DIY psych punk (or “Hippy Punk” as STEVE HALL calls it) at it’s finest, but don’t just take my word for it. Heavyweight record aficionados such as Henry Rollins, Byron Coley, Tom Lax, Doug Mosurock, and Geoffrey Weiss are BIG fans… ““Afflicted Man's style could best described at stock-in-trade Brit DIY w/an almost Street Level sort've quality to it…Too freaked out for punks, too punked out for freaks…must've felt like a rusty safety pin stuck straight through the heart of whatever DIY fanbase Hall had acquired. And for all the Pink Fairies or Hawkwind type's that mighta come across it, it was too primitive & animalistic for their quid.”—Siltblog. We here at Permanent absolutely love this record and are incomprehensibly honored to be the label reissuing it on vinyl for the first time ever. It’s been fully licensed by Steve Hall himself and painstakingly remastered by the total pros at Penguin Recording in Eagle Rock. The jacket artwork was graciously reconstituted and touched-up by Bill “Trouble In Mind” Roe. The full-color I’m Off Me ‘Ead inner sleeve contains a bunch of unseen AFFLICTED MAN photos, an unpublished interview with Steve Hall and a fully authorized reprint of Chris Stigliano’s article from Forced Exposure #9 (Winter 1986).
