Sleep Games DL Card Problem

Some copies of the recent LP re-issue of Sleep Games have been packed with what looks like a DL card for Owl’s Map. The code is good for Sleep Games however. (It’s just the wrong artwork & URL !) So please redeem your code here instead :

The Myth of Violet Meek
by Oliver Cherer
In the Ghost Box Guest Shop Now

In the Ghost Box Guest Shop now, The Myth of Violet Meek, the new album by Oliver Cherer,  on the lovely Wayside and Woodland label on beautiful bone toned vinyl. Cherer is also known as Dollboy and under his Gilroy Mere alias recently released the brilliant Green Line LP on Clay Pipe Records.

If you go down to the Forest (of Dean) don’t dare to ask Who Killed The Bears?

Part fabrication, part reminiscence Violet Meek is the girl in the woods. It’s possible that she was killed by a bear. It’s certain that she was damned by her reputation and with this Cherer draws on, at times, awkward memories of his own youth living inside The Forest of Dean “rumours and fumbling, burgeoning sexuality in the woods between the rivers Wye and Severn”

“There is a true story, about the hounding of some travelling entertainers and their dancing bears and how the bears were killed by a mob in revenge for an invented attack on a local girl in the woods between Cinderford and Ruardean. This is at the heart of the whole record.” writes Cherer.

“…it’s the mysterious, melancholy atmosphere which haunts this record that lingers after the music’s stopped. Having also released the equally excellent Gilroy Mere album The Green Line this year, The Myth Of Violet Meek is yet further evidence of Cherer’s considerable songwriting talent.”

Ghost Box is a record label for a group of artists exploring the misremembered musical history of a parallel world.

“Buying one of its releases feels like stepping into another world” The Guardian

“...what's most impressive about Ghost Box is the aesthetic consistency and sheer quality of the material, recalling the heydays of labels such as Factory, 4AD and Warp.” Quietus

“...some of the most delightful electronica to arise in Britain since Aphex Twin, the Black Dog and Global Communication.” The Sunday Times
