lone pigeon, one of domino%'s most elusive and enigmatic artists is returning in a big way with the release of 'time capsule', a massive 7 album box set which contains pretty much everything the man has ever made. for lone pigeon fans and fence collective obsessives, christmas has well and truly come early. packaged in beautiful mini card lp sleeves with dizzyingly colourful artwork that looks like the inside of a child's distorted imagination has exploded into reality, 'time capsule' contains tracks which may (or may not) have been released on cdr in the past, and provides a fascinating insight into the mind of an artist who has remained impossible to pin down. 'time capsule' also comes with some illuminating sleeve notes from king creosote, who happens to be lone pigeon's brother, and who readily admits he finds his brother to be as much of a puzzle as the rest of us. he seems to sum things up best in fittingly cryptic terms when he calls his brother, 'a wanderer, a pilgrim, a messianic jew, a dervish, a vandal, a prophet, but mainly a lost soul.' make of that what you will, but it makes a strange kind of sense to us, and probably will for anyone else who immerses themselves in this almost indescribable collection of songs.
