Ed Askew
A Child In The Sun: Radio Sessions 1969-1970

After recording the acid folk classic Ask The Unicorn LP in 1968, Ed Askew ostensibly stopped making music. It was only in the early 2000s when a second album was discovered that more research was done. It was this snooping that unearthed a whole load of treasures, including the tracks that make up A Child In The Sun: Radio Sess...view item »

Ed Askew
Art and Life

Ed Askew built up a small but solid cult following over the three and a half decades between his 1968 ESP-Disk debut and his 2003 return: he’s now in a place where people are eagerly awaiting new sounds from the man with the Martin Tiple (baritone ukulele).

Ed Askew
For The World

Singer / songwriter and painter Ed Askew is considered something of a New York legend. He released his first album 'Ask the Unicorn' in 1968 and his most recent, 'For the World' in 2013. With only four albums in between, he might not be prolific but what he lacks in output he more than makes up for in admiration. Super fan Sharon Van Etten guest...view item »

Ed Askew

Now this album is a bloody treasure. Ed is a cult folk icon, a gay hippy outsider from back in the day whose descent into obscurity never dimmed his penchant for penning raw, heartfelt & lilting chunks of dream-like melancholia. He really does rip at your heartstrings with his "Leonard Cohen meets Daniel Johnston at Jonathan Richman's house"...view item »

Ed Askew
Here We Are Together Again / Yellow Dollars

Can't find too much out about this dude but he's been making music since the late 60s. Having said that he's not released much... Just one LP on ESP Disk in 1968 and then an LP on De Stijl in 2005. What's he been doing in the meantime? I'd like to think he's been selling burgers in burger vans for the time in between (that's what all the best ar...view item »
