‘Strange Locomotion’ was the second and final album recorded by Kevin with Siren, the band he founded with former Bonzo Dog Band bassist Dave Clague and pianist/guitarist Nick Cudworth.
Originally issued on John Peel’s Dandelion label in 1971, ‘Strange Locomotion’ has been out-of-print on CD for many years.
This deluxe 2-CD edition has been re-mastered from the original tapes, with a whole bonus disc of rare home and studio recordings from the period, previously only available on fanclub-style releases. It features the first release on CD of ‘Lillian’, a song that only appeared on the US Elektra edition of the LP, together with another US-only album addition, the 7” UK A-Side ‘The Stride’.
Featuring rare and previously unseen photos and cuttings of Siren, the 16-page booklet features an interview with founder member Dave Clague recorded specially for this release, and an in-depth look at the band’s history.
