Architects Office - Caswallon The Headhunter LP

Posting this in a very late response to Cranio's request. Sorry, I used to have the AO353 cassette as well but I sold it. It wasn't really very good. THIS, however, is top notch weirdness of a very special nature. Released on PGR's label Silent back in 1986, the lengthy LP is an audio journey describing the Roman conquest of the British Isles. It presents a mix of real time story, historical perspective, and various digressions into modern topics. Written by Jane Brakhage, narrated by several different people, and with background music by AO. Fascinating.
