Joy of Vinyl

Lord Bassington-Bassington has expressed an interest in English band Joy of Life before, but it's not until recently that we here at Bassington Manor have gotten hold of some of their post-punky neofolk sounds on record. Luckily, it's good times for people interested in Joy of Life. Portugese label Extremocidente have a really delectable single out, and true to what you'd expect from these connoiseurs it's a piece of vinyl that is a joy to own - and play.

Oh, and if you are quick, you might be able to secure some of Joy of Life's old album Hear the Children, an interesting part of early neofolk history, for a very reasonable price. Contact them directly through their MySpace, and please inform them that we here at Bassington Manor sent you.

(Thanks to Lady Mju for photograhic help).


  1. I know it's been two years since you posted this, but I take it you also bought the two editions of the EP, or were you lucky to have the hardcover also?

  2. Hardcover? I don't quite follow. But then it IS early in the morning...

  3. I'm sorry my lord, I meant hardbound cover. As it is stated here:

  4. Oh! No, I didn't even know that version existed. What a beautiful release! But 99 Euros... good heavens. Thank Dog I'm not a completist!

    Oh, and there's no need to refer to me by title, just calling me "Bassie" and scratching me behind the ears goes a long way!
