Mr Deas returns to Blackest Rainbow with a heavy duty, high quality slab of wax which is a little different to his previous releases. The LP comprises a single improvised acoustic guitar piece and in the process displays his string plucking skills brilliantly. Here he is less like Fahey and more in fellow Sheffield improviser Derek Bailey mode. Some of the aggression reminds me a little of Bill Orcutt and occasionally I'm reminded of Sir Richard Bishop although his style remains his own. A super high quality recording captures the action.

6/10 Mr Pearl's Brain 11th May 2015

Man makes guitar go 'sproink'. A lot. Not a lot of tuneage, just the occasional reference to something a bit more conventional. Super high quality recording, you can hear every last resonance, every whisper of finger against string. It gets loud too, almost percussive at times. The downside is that there is zero melody, just the odd free-jazz-style hint of a riff, which can mean you lose track if you are not really concentrating. At one point you can hear the pegs creak as he detunes the strings, which really sells it to me, though not everyone, obviously.
