“The Lovers’ Will Records & Press is proud to announce our inaugural release: The deluxe double vinyl LP edition of the classic Folk-Noir recording, The Ventriloquist, by Ruby Throat. Limited to 300 hand-numbered copies in a reverse-board gatefold sleeve and including a full colour insert, this is the first time this gorgeous recording– originally self-released on CD in 2007– has been issued on vinyl! We are very pleased and excited to be forming this partnership with the band for the label's first venture.
Ruby Throat is a bewitching duo from The Edge of The Woods, UK and is compromised of vocalist KatieJane Garside (Daisy Chainsaw, Queenadreena) and guitarist Chris Wittingham. Garside’s voice is much like The Ventriloquist’s subject matter – riding on a dark line between the ethereal and the visceral. The album is made up of psychosexual musings, spectral visions, stark murder balladry and other transgressive tales delicately surrounded by the Psychedelic dream-wrap and pastoral strumming of Wittingham.
We believe The Ventriloquist is the perfect introduction for the tone and quality of albums, chapbooks and limited art-pieces The Lovers’ Will is planning to release in the coming months and years. Our gratitude is due to KatieJane and Chris for their stunning music and endless help and support in making this release a reality. “
