"Imagine being a punk rocker before there were any others, or a hippie whose message of peace was infused with a sardonic whimsy. That’s what it must have been like to be Pip Proud, in Sydney in the late 1960s, railing against the media and its hypocrisies, making a music that cut through all lies." (David Nichols, from the liner notes for A Fraying Space [EM1121CD/LP])


A singular single from a singular singer, 1968's "Purple Boy Gang" and the previously-unissued 1997-recorded "A Million Years From Now" traverse three decades yet display Pip Proud's unchanged and unchallenged uniqueness. Poet, singer, songwriter, romantic visionary, beloved outsider, Proud's unrestrained genius shines forth on both the Velvetsy band-backed A-side and the solo vox/guitar home-cassette-recorded B-side. Although considered by some to be a sort of Antipodean Syd Barrett, Pip Proud developed his world without prior knowledge of Barrett's work. From the upcoming EM Records release A Fraying Space [EM1121CD/LP], an anthology gathered from his three late-60s albums, plus some previously unreleased recordings.
