Sanguine Hum's 'Lost' 31 Track Double Album Released (Top Story)
The 31 tracks that make up What We Ask Is Where We Begin were recorded in 2006 under the title of Songs For Days but was only issued as a low-key digital download and has never had a physical release until now.
Esoteric Antenna say: "It was lost for a number of reasons. Firstly, the band had yet to settle on the name Sanguine Hum, and for some rather convoluted reasons it came out as Joff Winks Band - a name universally hated by everyone in the band, especially Joff.
"Secondly, despite much initial excitement, Songs For Days failed to find a home on a record label and so appeared with minimal hurrah as a digital download only. And what a loss this was.
"It meant that only a few hardcore fans would become familiar with the epic, soaring Juniper, the twisting Mahavishnu-inspired Milo, the childhood nostalgia of Cast Adrift, the traces of Steely Dan blended with Canterbury prog or the cinematic ambient segues and instrumentals gluing the album together."
