Another from my list of great albums you probably haven’t heard is “Dead Inside” by The Golden Palominos. I remember buying this cd when it came out in 96 because of one thing – the cover.

Dead Inside

I’d never heard of the Palominos but this cover grabbed me. I was in JB Hi-Fi, looking for something different, looking to expand my musical horizons. And hell, did I.

For this, their last true album, Anton Fier (the main guy behind the GP) pulled in New York poet Nicole Blackman to write and perform the spoken-word lyrics about murder, rape, torture, and a city that kills its young against an atmospheric soundspace.
