Simulacra is a covers album which raises certain questions about the very nature of what a cover is. Can you make a cover version of a folk song, or is that what folk music is already? Can you rework your own material and call it a cover version? Well, I appear to think so. All these tunes are my own, but they are different versions from the so-called 'originals.'
This 'EP' is a selection from the album formerly known as Simulacra (Side One) - a download-only release in the shape of an imaginary vinyl record with only an obverse face. A geometrical and physical impossibility, but a notion with some of the attributes of a zen koan.
