THE FABLE SESSIONS, UNCUT 2003

Shack continue to strive for recognition beyond the converted, hence this glorified re-release of 1999’s HMS Fable. This is a re-sequenced, remixed version of the original album with B-sides and outtakes from an era in which the fraternal Heads, Mick and John, came closer than ever to commercial success. But their aching psychedelia—think Love play Burt Bacharach, lyrics by Alan Bleasdale—failed to truly impact. The Fable Sessions eloquently poses the question once more: why?
