Artefact

Blue Orchids, The Fall, Factory Star
Original Artwork
2011
Enter Castle Perilous is the first album by Factory Star, led by Fall and Blue Orchids founder Martin Bramah. The album, produced by Nick Halliwell (The Granite Shore) and engineered by Richard Turvey (The Wild Swans), was recorded in just three days in January 2011. It is raw and articulate, the sound of a band captured red in tooth and claw.

Side one: 1. Angel Steps 2. Big Mill 3. Away Dull Care 4. Cheetham Bill 5. Black Comic Book
Side two: 1. When Sleep Won't Come 2. The Fall Of Great Britain 3. New Chemical Light 4. Stone Tumbling Stream 5. Arise Europa!

Very derivative, sorry. I took time to play all 3 tracks (played a couple of times) and its over-influenced by The Fall. And just look at the track listing titles.... Martin must've been looking back to the old days. And the name also seems to be a bit retro....

Sorry Mitch, but I think It's a bit odd to say that it sounds over influenced by the fall when Martin Bramah was the sound of the fall.
Everyone else has only tried to replicate what he did in the first place.

I think I phrased that badly stonehorse; fully appreciate martin's work with the band; I felt that it sounded like a step back to that time compared with the moves forward with Blue Orchids if that makes sense?
