Agreed on the unlikelihood of the story.
I head about this unmasking and I'm very skeptical that the whole thing was some grand plan to find a long lost sibling. I find it more likely that a 26yo fanfic writer retcon'd her 15 yo self's have hopes & dreams for a good story for a memoir.
It's a weird story altogether.
I'm hitting a paywall.
I love this part:
One group, which he termed “the X-philes” in his paper, suggested that the case was an example of telepathic communication from well-meaning people who had psychically learned of the tumour and sent warning. The second group,“the X-phobes” suggested that A.B. had already been aware of her tumour before coming to the U.K. and had invented the story of hearing voices as part of a scheme to get free medical care under the National Health Service. Since she had already been living in the U.K. for fifteen years before hearing the voices, the facts do not appear to bear this out.
Private press, almost unknown heavy stoner psych.
No record label, but catalog number 666.
Strong comparisons to Jim Morrison, the lizard king.
Recorded in 1971? But maybe 1980?
One of the Top 10 private press LPs most likely to be owned by a serial killer.
Great thread series!
Been getting back into Crimpshire. A must listen if you like East Bay punk (Green Day, Rancid/Op Ivy). Their catalogue was recently reissued on Numero Group.
Recently picked up Banco De Gaia's "The 9th of Nine Hearts." Great style.
Jlin's new black Oragmi album is pretty dope too.
