String Driven Thing: String Driven Thing (Buddah)

Metal Mike Saunders, Phonograph Record, February 1973

THIS HAS GOT TO be one of the strangest albums I've heard all year. String Driven Thing (some name, huh?) are a Fairport Convention-ish British folk group fronted by Chris Adams and Pauline Adams, apparently either a married couple or brother and sister (possibly both, but not likely). The former of the Adams duo wrote all the LP's material, and the group is rounded out by a bassist and violinist.

Total word count of piece: 262
