What our staff has to say: “From the crew of New Blockaders, Metgumbnerbone, and Alien Brains, and maybe slightly lesser known, Bladder Flask aligns a little more with the weirdness of Nurse With Wound and would have fit well in the United Dairies catalog. Originally released in 1981 on their own Orgel Fesper Music, and now remastered by Colin Potter and reissued by Sonoris, One Day I Was So Sad That The Corners Of My Mouth Met & Everyone Thought I Was Whistling is a must have for fans of early industrial and experimental music of the time. Great art too, even if is different than what was originally featured on the LP. Sonoris also just reissued some great P16.D4 records. Check em out!” – Jon
Full title: One Day I Was So Sad That The Corners Of My Mouth Met & Everybody Thought I Was Whistling. Bladder Flask’s debut (in fact only) LP, originally issued by Orgel Fesper Music in 1981, is one of the most eclectic albums of the post-industrial era. It is both challenging and perplexing… So, put down your puny instruments of normality and breathe in the frenzied fungal spores of Bladder Flask. The fact that Steven Stapleton of Nurse With Wound is a big fan of this album is testament to its greatness: “I love Bladder Flask’s One Day I Was So Sad That The Corners Of My Mouth Met & Everybody Thought I Was Whistling and what a great title, perhaps my favorite ever. I must have listened to the album so much in the ’80s. I listened to it again recently and it was like welcoming an old friend.” Personnel: Richard Rupenus, Philip Rupenus + Sean Breadin, John Mylotte, Nigel Jacklin. Recorded at Wrongrong Studio and Spectro Arts Workshop 1980-1981. Audio restoration and mastering: Colin Potter @ IC Studio.
