Vinyl LP pressing. Lantern Rec. Presents a reissue of Kevin Hewick and the Sound's This Cover Keeps Reality Unreal, originally released in 1983. Kevin Hewick - a Leicester born - is still considered a truly representative force of the post-punk counterculture. His first "proper" gig was on a bill with Joy Division, A Certain Ratio, and Section 25. He released a couple of records on Factory in the early '80s, then moving to Cherry Red in 1982. His collaboration with The Sound stands truly as his own masterwork. Recorded and mixed at Elephant Studios, Wapping, London on November 3rd, 4th, and 5th 1983, is still a refreshing example of their combined effort. The four tracks move along a sort of outsider folkish post punk being perhaps his most accessible work ever. Fully remastered and licensed.
