'Distant Songs Of Madmen' was recorded live in Palermo and was Mike Cooper's solo set in a concert organised by Lelio Gianetti and Curva Minore which included his trio Truth In The Abstract Blues and Eugene Chadbourne. The set was free improvisation; some cover versions of folk and pop songs and some of his own songs. The title of the record and some of the improvised pieces were taken from Sam Shepard's writing. Available in a beautiful designed cover with an exclusive amazing artwork made by Italian artist Carla Indipendente. Mastered for vinyl by Brian Pyle (Ensemble Economique).
