Frayed Sounds of a Distant City (3 July — 12 Aug, 1 Sept & 6 — 7 Dec 2016)

Another full-length album. This one gets back to long songs and explicit content. But it's not a behemoth like Dreams of a Lost City.

The title is (again) a line from The Ticket That Exploded by William S Burroughs. The great irony is I didn't even like that novel, yet it had a few nice random phrases that made for great album titles. This will be the last time I use a WSB line for a title. I promise.
