WHITHER WORLD OF POOH?.....
For about three years now I've seen references online
to an impending reissue of the "compleat" works from late 80s nervous pop/art group WORLD OF POOH
. And yet the thing continues to refrain from appearing. I have all their work scattered about their one and only LP "The Land Of Thirst"
, a couple of 45s and numerous comp tracks, but it sure would be nice to see it all in the same place, right? If you're a fan of BARBARA MANNING
's, and I hope you are, then you'll love this stuff she helped write and perform just before & at the dawn of her solo career. World of Pooh
were a huge live favorite of mine in 1989-90 San Francisco, and a reissue CD would be quite a boon to fans of wound-up outsider pop a la 100 FLOWERS
and MISSION OF BURMA
. Rumors have centered around the need for participation and final approval from guitarist and founder Brandan Kearney
, who's been captured on record as being somewhat embarrassed by his former group. His modesty is ill-placed, to say the least. Anyone know anything on the status of this reissue?
