Feathers for Flesh
Some reviews: Philadelphia City Paper July 2004 In the Nu-progressive rock underground, few bands are as respected and feared as Philadelphia's The Red Masque. Without irony or kitsch, the whirlwind that is Masque - on the new Feathers for Flesh (Big Balloon) -- stalks the darkness of Hammer Horror ambience and cursedly complex musicianship (think Gong meets Bauhaus) with only feedbacking noise, sound-collage clustering and the howl of vocalist Lynnette Shelley to light it's way. - A.D. Amorosi Beta-lactam Ring Records July 2004 Recently The Red Masque released their newest CD called Feathers For Flesh. We were in talks back in mid September 2001 to do an album with this great band but due to various issues it never quite happened. Well, they have finally issued what I think is their best album to date. Dark prog with a generous sprinkle of experimental psych and some seriously great female vocals by Lynnette. This is an album that will you play non stop for 2 weeks straight. Highest recommendations for this album! --Chris McBeth, President.
