Yes, generous Paul is at it again and is giving away some of his Bolan cover versions for you to download for your aural pleasure.
Here’s a message from Mr Roland himself: “I would like to offer tMarc Bolan cover versions that I recorded at different points in my career for FREE to Bolan fans who haven’t yet discovered my music and may be curious to have all cover versions, or who are just completists who feel they ought to have a copy.”
Of course, it goes without saying that all existing members of Paul’s glorious gargoyle fanbase are welcome to grab copies as well.
Here they are… just click on the links and download until your little hearts are content.

RE-ANIMATE YOUR EARS WITH PAUL’S CREEPY LOVECRAFT FREEBIES
FANCY something truly creepy to accompany you while reading your favourite Lovecraft stories? Or some eldritch sounds to thicken the atmosphere while you’re playing ‘Call of Cthullu’?
Well, now you can invoke the Old Ones courtesy of the ‘Edgar Allen Poe of psychpop’, cult recording artist and author Paul Roland who has kindly offered all fellow Lovecraft fans two FREE downloads of his classic tracks ‘Re-Animator’ and ‘Cthullu’ for all new visitors to his blogsite and facebook page http://www.facebook.com/RealPaulRoland. There you will find more free samples and information on the prolific Mr Roland who is also the author of more than 30 books including ‘The Dark History of the Occult’ which features a piece on the master himself as well as comic book artist Alan Moore and a fascinating investigation into the alleged link between Satanism and heavy metal.
Paul has been spinning his atmospheric tales of eccentric Edwardians, mad and murderous Victorian villains and Regency underworld characters since the early 1980s in a suitably psychpop-folk-baroque setting (featuring classical strings and harpsichord) when he was managed by June Bolan (widow of Marc Bolan). But his 2004 album ‘Re-Animator’ was his first to be inspired solely by Lovecraft. So if you want to hear more, simply click on the Facebook link and if that whets your appetite you will find a 36 track double CD ‘best of’ entitled ‘In Memoriam 1980-2010’ for the price of a fine cigar at Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Memorium-Paul-Roland/dp/B003TTBA58/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1324900584&sr=1-1 or individual tracks to be sampled and downloaded at CDbaby.com (Including the deliciously creepy ‘Arkham’ and its companion ‘Charles Dexter Ward’) http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/proland9
Happy listening, but keep the lights on!
ANOTHER FREEBIE FROM PAUL ROLAND
With such wonderful, gothic design to delight and enthrall our minds, wouldn’t it be wonderful if the cover of In Memoriam could greet us every time we sat at our mechanical computermajig? Well, dear people, we are here to quell your deepest, darkest cravings and fulfill your every desire: yes, Paul has allowed us to turn his wondrous album cover into a desktop wallpaper for your PC, Mac or steam-powered time machine screen.
Here it is… just click on the image, then right click to download when it displays in full.
PS: If you want to add this album to your collection, you can order it here.
EXCLUSIVE FREE DOWNLOAD – COMPLETE TRACK
Seems I spoke too soon, my friends, regarding the free download of ‘I Dared The Devil’. It appears the label concerned have the exclusive right to both the compilation AND any internet postings of the track so even though it is my music I must honour the agreement I made with them and withdraw the track for the time being. But to compensate for its enforced absence here is an intriguing spoken word track for your further enjoyment.
If you’ve enjoyed this brief encounter with Grimm, you can order the full album here.
