Edit: as of Feb. 2019 is up on bandcamp
Well, we have date of release for what now is posthumously album by Brian Henry Hooper. Still a couple of months away on 21st of Sept. 2018 or around about then? Because another website I’ve just found is saying 17th of Sept. 2018.
It’s almost a full year since I first heard about this cool record and did go a little mad writing a full blog post about it then which is here, if you want to have a look? Now a lot has happen in that year, he passing away on a day that was going to be a benefit concert but became a tribute show to him which I when too but had to lay down for a lot of it because sitting or standing was just too much to do. It’s linked here too, if you want have look? I don’t know how all the performers did it that day? Anyway, I guess someone has said it’s time to put out that album that’s been just sitting there waiting all this time!

The record label adds:
Bang! Records present What Would I Know?, the posthumous album from Brian Hooper. The release of this album is bittersweet; on one hand it is a happy and proud moment, while on the other, it feels deeply sad that this is the posthumous album of much-admired artist Brian Hooper. Entering into the album, can one imagine a new album from Brian Henry Hooper (Beasts of Bourbon, Kim Salmon & the Surrealists, Rowland S. Howard) with Gareth Liddiard of The Drones? What does it sound like? Picture Syd Barrett lost in Australia and you’ve got it! This is a truly personal and magical album, full of identity and openly exposing the genius of Brian Hooper.
