LE MAT - The Waltz Of The Fool (Vinyl album rip)

I posted Le Mats one and only single ages back, so now here’s their only album. Recorded in 1982 over 10 days and on a budget of £2,000 it was eventually released on Friday 13th June 1983 by Whaam records. A very special album that defies all catogories; is it folk, post punk, psychedelic or prog rock, who gives a fuck! It is a unique and beautiful record both musically and lyrically and I should have posted it way before now, but better late then never. You’d be a fool not to have a waltz to it, so here you go!

I'm the 4th to have this album - you don't see it around very much.Would be good to have it reissued on CD - I like it! Good cover and the band's image fitted the music well too.

My mate bought this album back in the 80s and I loved it. Everything works so well, guitar work is outstanding. Hunted it down on the inet n got a pristine copy. Tried to copy it to cd but fail miserably everytime. Is there a half decent download?

Hello - could you please re-upload the Waltz For The Fool album by Le Mat. It's an excellent album and unfortunately I've been unable to hear it for several years. Thank you in advance.
