    This 180-gram 12" EP is the first (and so far, only) posthumous release from Abunai! There are 2 versions of "Two Brothers", including some extended space/dub madness on the B-side "version". There's also a live take of "Lord Hampton" from Terrastock 4 (Seattle, Nov. 2000). Comes with a "broadside" insert with lyrics.

    Also includes immediate download of 3-track album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire.

    [from the Camera Obscura Records website]
    The A-side version of "Two Brothers" is a rich brew, touching on all of the best elements the band fused during their time together: touches of the psychedelic, the progressive, early-70s German kosmische and UK folk rock. It's all there in an utterly unique reading of the Child Ballad (#49) that straddles the spiritual and the secular, the Apollonian and the Dionysian. Side A is rounded out by a jagged live folk-punk-rock blast through the original-in-traditional-stylee "Lord Hampton" whose spiky guitar blasts and screw-you vocals are propelled by a rhythm section fit to power a starship. The extended space-dub version of "Two Brothers" on the B-side is both a stunning head-trip and a haunting valedictory gift by a band we wanted to hear so much more from. ... more

Abunai! "ceased regular operations" in summer 2002, but got together later that year to finish two different versions of the traditional song "Two Brothers". Also included on this disc was a live version of "Lord Hampton", recorded at Terrastock 4 (Seattle, Nov-03-2000). The 'Two Brothers' 12" EP was released by Camera Lucida in a limited edition of 300.
