Thomas, David & Pale Orchestra – “Mirror Man ” – [Thirsty Ear Recordings]

Mirror, mirror on the road…A travelin’
show here, mod vaudeville song-speak in
surreal-sound. Papa Pere Ubu conjures
up Kerouac and poet Bob Holman(whole-man?)
completes him. A story in snapshots & old
song snippets: neon signs and neon symbols.
Pale Orch luminaries include ghostrumpet
from Andy Diagram!!, carney-barking from
David Hild, Peter Hamill hoverguitar, vox
guests (Linda Thompson!)…but right now
I think Jack Kidney’s the heart of the
sound, pumping harmonica and sax. Thomas
wonder/wanders the same Lost Highway that
Lynch did. Funny how well Thomas can see
America from London. This is as inviting
as a full tank of gas!
