Following on from the re-issue of their classic 'Hex' here is a re-press of their much overlooked follow up 'Codename: Dustsucker'. Though at this point Bark Psychosis were really just frontman Graham Sutton this is a strong follow up retaining the same eerie late night atmospheres and adding in more obvious hints of shoegaze. Talk Talk's Lee Harris guests on an album that will appeal to fans of the late work of his band and that of Slowdive.
Staff note from Clinton:
I gave this album short shrift when it came out in 2004 as I loved 'Hex' so much I just didn't think they could top it. Which they haven't, but it's still a lovely listen...kind of a mix between Talk Talk's 'Laughing Stock' and Slowdive's 'Pygmalion'. Listening to it in the office today my mind has been changed about this much-neglected album, and I'll be buying this re-issue when it comes out.

Phil's incisive review from back in 2006.
Bark Psychosis have been having somewhat of a resurgence of late. So it would make sense to reform and do a new album. Cleverly that's what the boys did and those nice folks at Fire Records Of Nottingham have released it. A nice healthy dose of Shoegazing with some late period Talk Talk chucked in for good measure. Most enjoyable indeedy...
