Limited 12″ Vinyl LP / Mp3

Further Conclusions Against an Italian Version (BAT) is the debut album from Socrates that practiçes music. The London-based group have been compared to Bauhaus and A Certain Ratio, The Nightingales and The Mekons. Recently Socrates would be well described as a two-man metagoth outfit who use samplers, synths, guitars and drums to explore the occult, shire horses, legal wrangles and less-than-confident gardeners. “It’s like Country Life magazine edited by M.R. James and designed by Barney Bubbles” (Norris Stoat, Melody Maker).

“…art-rock and neo-folk with an eccentric counterpoint to place themselves beyond the reach of all. Stabs at profundity that reach beyond the cabaret or the intentionally weird and find themselves in the orbit of the Jefferies brothers at a better time for us all.” (Doug Mosurock)
