Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I recently picked up a ridiculously cheap copy of Vinny Miller's first - & so far ONLY - album c/o Amazon after reading about it in Martin Aston's excellent 4AD-based tome, Facing The Wrong Way.

First impressions: frankly, On The Block is a bit of a mess. Fortunately, it's an often brilliant one...

Downcast, doleful loner-strum/moan for the most part, this inexplicable patchwork of cimmerian ballads, puzzling abstract interludes, & sporadic blasts of withering post-rock dissonance still sounds pretty good a decade after it's initial release, during which time it has languished in complete & utter obscurity - due, largely, to 4AD Records allowing it to slip out virtually unheralded (Google it, there's hardly anything written about this album on-line).

It's no masterpiece, but it has far more in common with 4AD's initial aesthetic impulses than any other title they've issued in the last decade (or more), & if you're a fan of the label's earliest, strangest artists (nascent Wolfgang Press or later Bauhaus, for instance) you may discover that you enjoy On The Block too.
