Fields of The Nephilim

fieldsnephilim14Though there is room for everybody in life's rich musical pageant, most people with ears drew the line at Fields of The Nephilim.

Their self-financed 1985 debut EP Burning The Fields begged the question . . . "why?". And "how did they ever get off the ground?" . . . and "can you stop now, please!"

Carl McCoy's ludicrous bowel-deep croon and dark mutterings carried all the menace of a pantomime villain in wooly pink tights.

Dressed in flour-coated cowboy outfits the band soon found their melancholy and occult-themed music swept up with the burgeoning Goth movement.

They did improve with time. But not much.
