Hitchcock’s House Movie Soundtrack – THE BLINDERS With ‘FANTASIES OF A STAY AT HOME PSYCHOPATH’

18 July 2020

Band: THE BLINDERS
Who: Raging post-punk misfits from Doncaster, UK
Album: FANTASIES OF A STAY AT HOME PSYCHOPATH
The trio’s second album after cutting debut Columbia
Info: “A dark blues-waltz underpinned by propulsive bass and evocatively prosaic lyricism, the track straddles the lines between ode and lament while addressing life’s confusing crossroads. The track is accompanied by an arresting video, which cuts between the band performing and wandering the atmospherically bleak landscape of the Peak District.” – Rough Trade

Louder Than War says: “The delayed second album from The Blinders, Fantasies of a Stay at Home Psychopath, finally sees the light of day as lockdown eases and the psychopaths finally come out to play again… This is a grower, and as such it surrounds and engulfs you, it has you noticing different little nuances and subtleties with each listen, you end up focussing on the lyrical couplets and analysing the messages behind the songs. It is definitely, and defiantly, a thought-provoking album… Who knows what tomorrow will bring? For now, Fantasies of a Stay at Home Psychopath is an essential document and soundtrack for these quite frankly dystopian times.”

Key influences: The Fall, Joy Division, Rimbaud, George Orwell, Ginsberg, S.Borroughs

Key phrase:“The lunatics have taken over the asylum.
