We are truly excited to present the next stage in our ongoing reissue project with cult singer Rose McDowall. Upon leaving Strawberry Switchblade, Rose embarked on an exciting if tumultuous adventure, recording with friends in Coil, Current 93, Psychic TV and Felt, while enlisting members of The Sugarcubes and Into A Circle for her own debut solo recordings. The Sunflower Demos, later re-named Cut With The Cake Knife, document her head-space at the time, as well as point to what the future was to bring. As such they are the most direct pop songs she ever wrote, still smitten with the bright/melancholic dichotomy she had so perfected with her partner Jill Bryson in Strawberry Switchblade.
Check out this montage of rare stills from the period, all featured on the new edition of Cut With The Cake Knife.
You can now pre-order Rose McDowall’s Cut With The Cake Knife from us on CD and vinyl here.
