Also you might have heard of his Name Is Alive [4AD] whose first 4 lps i strongly recommend.The first album called Livonia is absolutely extraordinary.Not much of a selection on Youtube unfortunately.
This is just getting creepy now Peter: "This World Is Not My Home" is the song I want played at my funeral and I've seriously considered organising a break to New York based around their touring schedule. The 4AD albums are magic, but I still pick up anything that gets proper distribution over here and there's always one or two tracks that scale the heights. So far I've been able to resist splashing out on the masses of self-indulgent noodling they put out on their own label. So far.
I remember liking "Quick as Rainbows", but that's a different side to KoD and you're right about the guitar sound. Lovely. As for Cranes, I quite like the music but, unfortunately, I've never been able to stand her voice.
