The Thorn is the second album by Large Plants, This time round there’s a folkier, proggier more fantastical feel than the heavier biker-rock of the 2022 debut, The Carrier.
It was partly recorded at the same time as the The Carrier, with more songs added subsequently. However, all tracks for both albums were recorded and performed entirely by Jack Sharp in a barn, since demolished. ‚ÄúIt was a dirty, rusty, metal shack with no insulation or sound treatment, and it was full of junk, but it sounded weirdly great, and I loved it.‚Äù Sharp told Shindig magazine.
Julian House’s design work across all formats re-purposes Arthur Rackham illustrations to fantastic effect.
