A-Soma & the Unlightened - Nothing Comes to Mind (1999)


Dark, extremely strange music from Nemo Jones, son of Crass' Eve Libertine. Synthesized orchestral arrangements, classically-inspired acoustic guitars, surreal poetry, some moments resembling deconstructed new wave, and generally unsettling vibes. I've been wanting to post this for years, but the prospect of actually having to describe it has been daunting. So in the interest of the greater good, I just decided to half-ass it, like always.

Track listing:
1. This
2. Train
3. Vortex of Blades
4. Ethyl
5. Dark Sphere
6. Satellite Dance
7. Giant Leaves
8. Draps Bruts
9. Conundrum
10. Sky Face
11. The Canals of Mars
12. The Botanist's Servant
13. Falling Down Holy
14. Frozen Fields
15. Amniotic Shore
16. The Box
17. Scorched
18. Morning Light
19. Mineral Worship

There's no such thing as purity

  1. I had no idea this existed. Are there any other Crass Kids making music?

  3. This album Nothing Comes To MInd, is a solo album by A-Soma. It has nothing to do with Nemo Jones. His mother Eve Libertine contributed backing vocals to one track on it.
    Visit www.a-soma.com for further information.

    1. A-Soma is Nemo Jones, though, right? According to Discogs, A-Soma is Nemo Jones' alias. Is that incorrect?
