#094: Cheval Sombre - Mad Love (CD)

This is the CD version of Cheval Sombre’s second album Mad Love that was released in 2012. I bought this copy in 2015 when Sonic Cathedral were having a crazy sale of CDs most for £2.50 some even cheaper. My copy is still sealed… because I already had this lovely album on LP.

Shortly after the release of this album Cheval Sombre played a lovely show at St Pancras Old Church with Sonic Boom accompanying (and the lovely The Left Outsides supporting) - I arrived, as I invariably do at this venue, very early and took up an unfamiliar front row seat - I normally prefer to stand at the back, but for some reason I decided that Cheval Sombre might be enjoyed sitting down. I had a lovely view of The Left Outsides… but then…

The show was recorded for posterity and released on a limited edition cassette by Sonic Cathedral and a photograph of the show from my position was used on the sleeve. There are more of my pictures from the show on Flickr.
