Cradle - Baba Yaga

This is a lost gem. Those of you in the know will be aware that Cradle was the short lived psych-folk group formed by Sir Terrence of Bickers after he left UK shoegaze maestros The House Of Love. Their one album starts with the strangely catchy Second Nature, but from then on in forget all about hooklines, as the album meanders through the strange psychedelic marshland that is Mr Bickers' inner muse. Various folk tinged melodies float in out of the mix culminating in the 16 minute epic Chloe's Room.

Apart from a short lived but unfortunately uninspired HoL reunion a few years back, nowt has been heard of Mr B, who is sorely missed by those who appreciate modern psychedelia. Terry where are you?
