Pagan Wanderer Lu – Make Archive (2001-2005)

Artist: Pagan Wanderer Lu
Title: Make Archive (2001-2005)
Cat: FFP-R03
Run Time: 27:40

Originally given a digital release through the subscription service Beardaid, Make Archive (2001-2005) gets a full, free digital release thanks to Fleeing from Pigeons. The imperfect, charming and nonsensical nature of Pagan Wanderer Lu’s pop music comes across splendidly in this release – a collection of the omnichord-basher’s bedroom recorded pre-Brainlove Records tracks – which all originally found a small place in the world through DIY CDRs – and perfectly segues us towards Pagan Wanderer Lu’s first ‘proper’ full length Fight My Battles For Me, released through Brainlove next month.

1. My Victor 5. The Lord Geraint
2. Make a mediocre dinner 6. ”Headaches” Girl
3. Hypersanity (Kiss & Refrain) 7. J.L.B. Smith
4. Matthew/Mark 8. Brecon Beacons


Other formats are currently unavailable with this release. You can still donate to us though.

Releases by Pagan Wanderer Lu

Pagan Wanderer Lu – Fight My Battles For Me
Fight My Battles For Me is a distillation of PWL’s prolific output and a glimpse into what the future has to offer. Catchy pop songs meet experimental sonic flair and an intelligent lyrical sensibility to create a truly unique sound. His crowning achievement to date.
CD £10 (£1.50 P&P) – Buy from Pagan Wanderer Lu
Pagan Wanderer Lu – The Independent Scrutineer EP
Six wonderful songs from the seemingly neverending mine of tunes at PWL’s disposal. From the mournful echo and rousing refrain of ‘The Memorial Hall’ to the wiry guitar of ‘Our New Hospital Sucks’ and the twinkling omnichord sounds of closer ‘Knight > King 4’, this is an EP to remember form a brilliant emerging songwriter.
CD £5 (£1.50 P&P) – Buy from Pagan Wanderer Lu
Pagan Wanderer Lu – Perfection R.I.P.
Nine-track, second EP for Brainlove. Self-recorded at his home in various locations from 2006-07 and mixed and mastered by Oli Horton of Trademark. Released on CD in card sleeve. The first batch of CDs came with a photocopied explanatory booklet inside.
CD £5 (£1.50 P&P) – Buy from Pagan Wanderer Lu
Pagan Wanderer Lu – The Omega Point EP
Limited to 100 numbered copies on CDR. Kind of a companion EP to Fight My Battles For Me, it contains four songs which were recorded for the album but not included. Track 4 is a new version of the BLH(oe!) song featuring David and Laura from The Volunteers.
CD £4 (£1.50 P&P) – Buy from Pagan Wanderer Lu
Napoleon IIIrd / Pagan Wanderer Lu – Split EP
Napoleon IIIrd and Pagan Wanderer Lu are two of the brightest up-and-coming stars in the English underground music firmament. Paired together for Brainlove¹s first release of 2006, their split 7″ single release contains arguably their best songs to date – Napoleon’s ‘Hit Schmooze For Me’ is an anthem for anyone who’s ever dreamt of more than an unfulfilling dayjob; Pagan Wanderer Lu’s ‘Repetition 1’ is a subtle, affecting ode to the stresses of modern living.
7″ vinyl £3.99 (ex. P&P) – Buy from Norman Records

In these early days for Fleeing from Pigeons, we have got something of a glut of new releases coming for you and hope to have a constant stream to keep you all entertained. Following our first two releases (FFP-R01 and FFP-R02) I can confirm our next two records coming over digitally.

Firstly, we have Pagan Wanderer Lu‘s release Make Archive (2001-2005) – a collection of the Cardiff-based Ominchord-basher’s pre-Brainlove Records tracks. Essentially a best of the DIY CDRs he’s been producing almost seamlessly for the period mentioned in the title. It’ll be available from Easter Monday – 13 April.

Secondly, I’m personally incredibly excited about giving Ratface a digital distribution channel. Anybody who has asked me ‘what music are you into at the moment?’ will have been tired by my constant answer of Ratface, and now – finally – those people can either get what I was talking about, or just think I have no taste at all. We’re starting with the digital release of his very first record – …On Ice! – that came out through At the Library Records in 2007. That’ll be out on 27 April, but there’s plenty more new and old Ratface to come.

There’s plenty more of everything to come…
