The Boats
Abstraction

The Boats’ Abstraction is pressed to translucent red vinyl, and interestingly packaged alongside some art cards in a transparent sleeve. The music however is far from see-through: instead, Abstraction is a thickly opaque wall of distortion and hammering beats. Limited to 300 copies on Other Ideas....view item »


The Remote Viewer
Us. In Happier Times

Not quite a reunion but certainly an album of unheard material from bleak but heartwarming Lancashire electronic bods the Remote Viewer. The duo split out of Hood circa 1999 and made several records of rainy northern techno before splitting off into the Boats/the Humblebee and ...view item »

Andrew Hargreaves
Pose Plastique

This is the kind of stuff I get to review, you see. If it’s not emotive electronica or weeping melancholy made by classical muso types, it’s art. So ‘Pose Plastique’ falls into the latter category, of course. I’m not complaining though, honestly… Musique Concrète rarely sounds this chilling or sparse. ...view item »

Tape Loop Orchestra
The Invisibles

Can’t argue with a name like Tape Loop Orchestra. The project, helmed by Andrew Hargreaves, does indeed build their tracks out of hissing loops of tape material, and their compositions do have a grand scope to them. New album The Invisibles delivers a potent portion of decaying ambience, a work of...view item »

Beppu
Persuasion

This is the second of a three LP trilogy of releases from Andrew Hargreaves, an extraordinarily haired man who if you are paying attention you'll know is also in The Boats. Here, he explores a love of industrial techno, four to the floor kick drums and noise pushed waaaay into the red. Fans of Pan Sonic, Throbbing Gristle and Wolfgang Voigt...view item »

The Humble Bee & Players

Stemming from research on the formation of snowflakes Craig Tattersall curates 6 musicians to create individual pieces which are then brought back together. With a bonus CD of the original results, and LP of 6 remixes from Tattersa...view item »

The Humble Bee
She Possessed The Secret…

Craig Tattersall (The Boats, Remote Viewer, Hood, etc) this week slips back into one of his many aliases, The Humble Bee, for a second album of awkwardly immersive ambience. As Mr Bee he deftly combines field recorded tape loops, electronics and anal...view item »

Beppu
Coercion

Good lord a dark atmospheric industrial techno record from Andrew Hargreaves of The Boats. I think it’s fair to say that this brand of dark industrialised techno is reasonably in vogue at the moment and with this record Andrew is gonna be giving the scene’s main players a proper good run for their money. ‘Coercion&rsquo...view item »

John Lacey / Coum Transmissions
Music for Stocking Top, Swing and Staircase

This is a strange record. Coum Transmissions was some kind of Psychic TV/Throbbing Gristle project (check the press release for history lesson) and this recording is an abbreviated version of a performance from 1974 which went on for a mind-melting 12 hours at the Royal Co...view item »

The Humble Bee
Henrietta

Winning the race of the two ex Remote Viewer guys to get their new recordings onto vinyl (Andrew Johnson’s A New Line (Related) album is coming soon and will be worth the wait), Craig Tattersall gives us his first ever solo vinyl transmission. Craig, you may recall,  was once in ...view item »

The Boats
Nomenclature

The cynic in me had my reservations when reading The Boats had made a techno record, with so many artists jumping on the techno bandwagon there are some weak interpretations of my favourite genre floating about but then I guess there always has been. The plus side is more artists...view item »

The Mistys
Redemption Forest

The cold is starting to set in up here in Leeds as autumn has well and truly arrived this week, and I’ve nothing but a big review pile for consolation, starting with this blue LP from The Mistys who consist of The Boats/Tape Loop Orchestra’s Andrew Davies and singer Beth Roberts. It’s a heady synthpo...view item »
