Spidermilk

"They will cradle you in their arms and spin webs of thought that lift the swaddled listener out of the fray to be soothed awhile in the thoughts of another. They will remind you that the walls in your head don't belong to you, and excite your spirit in awkward moments of unabashed honesty, that warn you that you must walk into the woods to come out the other side. However, winter's almost gone, and there is room for things to germinate.

Ed Askew

Ed Askew, a gay man, cut one of the best and most obscure LPs in the original ESP Disk’s vague rock/folk/freak series, issued eponymously and since reissued as Ask the Unicorn, before apparently dropping off the edge of his world. Years later, thanks to detective work by - naturally - Mr Clint Simonson of the De Stijl Records imprint, it turned out that not only was Askew still breathing but he had actually recorded a follow-up to his ESP Disk in 1970 that had lain in the can for decades.
