Title: Laughing Up Your Sleeve
Artist: Unicorn
Label: Omnivore Recordings
Product Type: VINYL LP
UPC: 816651010479
Genre: Rock

The LP release compiles 11 previously unreleased demos (plus 9 more on the accompanying download), recorded in Gilmour's home studio in 1973-1974, with Gilmour himself adding pedal steel guitar to "Sleep Song." Unicorn's music owes as much to rustic Americana acts such as The Band, The Byrds, and Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, as it does to the lyrical themes of English tradition and whimsy relayed by the likes of Ray Davies and even Syd Barrett. Although musically inspired by American acts (mostly folk and country rock), theirs is a very British sound which, unfortunately, was out of step for the time in which it was released, at least in England from where they rarely strayed. Laughing Up Your Sleeve also contains many never-before-seen, recently discovered photos of the band. In addition, extensive liner notes detail the band's story, how these demos were found and new interviews with Gilmour and key band members.
