This 2014 vinyl edition of Flemish Altruism is presented with brand new artwork featuring many newly unearthed archival photos and was remastered from the original tapes. The records, which have been out of print for nearly a decade, are packaged in a gatefold jacket with free download card. A Minor Forest have reunited and will be touring the US in April & May.
Their first release was the "Lem Monkey" EP on Karate Brand Records. Subsequently they have released several 7inches, a 10inch and a few 12inch singles on various labels. Flemish Altruism is their debut record and was recorded in Chicago by Steve Albini and Bob Weston. A Minor Forest's music is filled with elements of classical compositional structure. Their songs are augmented with improvisation. Flemish Altruism moves effortlessly from the dissonant melancholia to reckless abandon with the precision of a finely tuned machine. Not for the weak of heart.
