We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

Dr. Strangely Strange were an experimental Irish folk group formed in Dublin in 1967 by Tim Booth (vocals and guitar) (born Timothy Booth, 6 September 1943, in County Kildare, Ireland) and Ivan Pawle bass (born 17 August 1943, in England) and keyboards).
Soon they teamed with multi-instrumentalist Tim Goulding (vocals and keyboards) (born Timothy Goulding, 15 May 1945, in Hatch Street, Dublin), an aspiring painter, and began living and rehearsing in a house owned by Goulding's girlfriend, backing vocalist Orphan Annie, which its tenants nicknamed "The Orphanage." After signing with the Incredible String Band's producer and manager Joe Boyd, they debuted in 1969 with Kip of the Serenes. This was produced by Boyd and the sound shares much in common with the String Band. While on tour with Fotheringay, they enlisted drummer Neil Hopwood, and later in the year appeared on the String Band's Changing Horses album.
After 1970's Heavy Petting, Dr. Strangely Strange began falling apart: Goulding left to enter to a Buddhist monastery, while Pawle and Booth teamed with Gay and Terry Woods for a brief tour. The group soon disbanded, but they reunited in 1973 for an Irish tour, and briefly reconvened again in the early 1980s, Eventually Booth established a second Orphanage which became a springboard for a new generation of Irish rock, helping launch the careers of Thin Lizzy's Phil Lynott, Gary Moore and others. The band reformed with the original members to record a third album released in 1997. (wikipedia)
