Brown Envelope (TRI 5)


Diary were a different kettle of fish than that  to be found on the London gig circuit in the late ’90s & early noughties.
Fronted by sometime Fluxus poet John Plant, their first album ‘Got to Get In Love (By Tuesday)’ was described by Wire reviewer Ben Watson as ‘the only prole art threat in town’. Post punk & art rock are lazy descriptives of a unique sounding band. John Peel put an appeal out on his radio show for more by Diary, after losing a demo tape.
Chronologically the last of their four albums, gathering up loose ends of various line ups & rare tracks. (See other entries)
