Aidan Andrew Dun - Intro Notes - Back to Index

The Cool Shall Inherit


Subtitled "Straight Ahead with Interesting Curves", this is one of my all time favourite albums. Limited availability as they say; my impression is that most copies were given to friends, sold at gigs, or distributed via a rasta dude on Camden Lock Market who has been shifting copies for years and declared it a classic. Aidan produced the album himself and mixed it at a London studio with technical help from Quiller and D-Boy. I would describe it as heavy mystical dub and it still sounds great to me after in excess of 50 listenings. The lyrics of track 5 "Avalon Freestate" are from the epilogue of "Vale Royal". This album is not for the faint of heart - there should be a warning against playing it while tripping! Ian Gregory 2010
