Sleeps with the Fishes is the lone collaborative album from Clan of Xymox founding member Pieter Nooten and Canadian guitarist/producer Michael Brook, released by 4AD on 12 October 1987.

I'm here to ask and beg Mr Nooten and Mr Brook to have this underrated album a vinyl reissue with original master tape as the original source. If possible, please do it in an all analogue way. I bought the original vinyl in the early 1990s, but I don't dare to play it.

Sleeps With the Fishes comprises 15 excellent, moody soundscapes, given depth by Nooten's subtle vocals and instrumentation that sounds piped in from some dreamy other world. Brook's guitar rings and chimes, sounding cleaner, and his guitar work is more precise than ever. The album seems to define the word "mysterious. Nooten's vocals are gloomy, yet angelic as he sings about walking over clouds and worlds of unease

On October 12th, 1987, Pieter Nooten and Michael Brook released the sublime Sleeps With the Fishes on 4AD. Perhaps the most underrated record in the classic 4AD oeuvre, Sleeps With the Fishes is a gorgeous, ephemeral album that serves as a sister record to Clan of Xymox‘s Medusa, released in 1986. The album was originally conceived to be Nooten’s first solo record after a split from Clan of Xymox. In addition to several new compositions, Sleeps With the Fishes also draws upon several motifs explored by Nooten in Clan of Xymox’s earlier recordings.

I'm here to ask and beg Mr Nooten and Mr Brook to have this underrated album a vinyl reissue with original master tape as the original source. If possible, please do it in an all analogue way. I bought the original vinyl in the early 1990s, but I don't dare to play it. I know the sound quality will be decreasing every time I play it. If it's reissued on vinyl, I certainly will buy at least 3 copies and play it very often. Playing the track Searching is always a test of the audio system, particularly for the loudspeakers.

If you have a nice pickup you can play the record thousands of time with no problem.

What a blast in music! Since the late 80ies I wondered why this album has often been put down. A masterpiece and example that the british really got what it takes to make great music. untouchable!! but touched by the gods ;)
  • Kanek
I agree. Great album. However, the two musicians are Dutch and Canadian, not BritishIf you like this check out Medusa by Clan of Xymox and the early solo albums by Michael Brook.

One of the most beautiful, quiet, lovely albums ever IMHO. RIP Mr. Nooten.
  • Sorryyy
I am still alive and well thank you ... ;-)
  • Oreavi
I agree with your assessment of the album, and IMO is the best album 4AD ever released. As a side note, Pieter Nooten isnot dead.
