Dalis Car ‎– The Waking Hour (1984)

The Waking Hour is the singular album by Dalis Car, a one-off collaborative effort between ex-Japan bassist Mick Karn and former Bauhaus vocalist Peter Murphy. Sporting the 1922 Maxfield Parrish painting Daybreak as its cover art, the album was released in 1984 on Paradox. Musically, the album is a continuation of the ethno-exotica first mined by the bassist on Tin Drum and Titles.
