Gayle Brogan (a.k.a Pefkin) is a name I've not heard before yet according to her Last FM page her contribution to the experimental/improv scene is highly significant due to her output as a fanzine writer (she published Boa zine) and dealer in underground tunes via her Boa Melody Bar distribution service. Musically Brogan's work is dense and atmospheric in nature and feeds into the 'you can do anything you want attitude' in regards to the marriage of tones and rhythms. 'The Inaugural Meeting Of The Glasgow Temperance Society' features two short compositions bookended by two expansive jams. Simple guitar picking and a ghostly vocal delivery are augmented with percussion, lashes of echo, tone generators and effects manipulation. As you can imagine the result is slightly unsettling but fascinating all the same. 'Seasons Come And Never Go' certainly suggests a marriage of gothic songwriting with dub production tendencies and is a very effective piece of work.

What a delight for me to be able to bring you the new recording from Pefkin.Quite some time ago I got the 'Asa Nisi Masa' cdr on Foxglove.I really liked this album, so combined with fond memories of Electroscope I was prompted to ask Gayle if she would consider doing a recording for Reverb Worship.She kindly agreed saying 'it could be a while'.The result is 'The Inaugural Meeting Of The Glasgow Temperence Society'.Recorded in 2010 for a session broadcast on John Cavanagh's Soundwave radio show on Radio 6 International.This really is a tremendous recording.On this session Pefkin was joined by John Cavanagh on Farfisa Compact Duo and VCS3 and Hanna Tuulikki on drums, flute, mandolin and voice.When these three get together something special happens.Over thirty three minutes we are treated to four tracks of beautifully ethereal finnish sounding psychedelic space folk with dreamy space whispers, bowed and plucked strings, clattery echoing percussion, flute and trippy organ.This cd is available now in an edition of 50 hand numbered copies.
