P. Allen - Fisherman (7")
In 1986 Peter Allen self-released Fisherman in his new home Toronto on his Ponko Dread label, hand distributing it to local record stores and sound systems. Perhaps it was too ahead of its time -- or too unusual, with its dirge-like synth and deep roots lyrics -- but Fisherman was largely overlooked until a few copies emerged around 5 years ago, becoming coveted grails by European digi collectors with deep pockets. Shella Records located Peter Allen who lives east of Toronto where he drives a school bus and still loves to sing.
