Album: Lazarus and the Plane Crash, Horseplay (Antique Beat)

Lazarus and the Plane Crash is a project fronted by Joe Coles of defunct berserkers The Guillotines and Stephen Coates, aka the Real Tuesday Weld aka The Clerkenwell Kid.

Horseplay, whose oversized packaging folds out into a ouija board, is a peripatetic, eclectic magpie's nest of styles, with Coles alternating between a badass Beefheartian blues rasp and a more courtly Cole Porter diction, while Coates provides an alluring cut-and-paste backing of vintage found sounds.
