Very little is known to have come out of Barrow-in-Furness - the Cumbrian town at the tip of the Furness peninsular. Lots of ships and submarines were built there, Liverpool and England captain Emlyn Hughes was born there and its bus depot was referenced in a 1980s Chewits commercial. There was also its thriving but largely self-contained music scene. Gary Cook was a central figure in this scene, as a member of several bands and as a solo performer, until he died in 2006 at the age of 41. He was loved and respected by those that knew him. The Fabulous World of Gary Cook is a compilation of his lo-fi guitar and analogue electronic indie-goth-pop. Lyrically he is confessional, honest and at times funny and camp. The music, a collection spanning 30 years, is compiled from cassettes he left behind. Limited edition of 300 red vinyl with black and white splatter, hand numbered, never to be repressed.
