I once watched in amazement as Loren Connors and Jim O'Rourke guitar-wanked themselves to death in front of horrified onlookers at a gig in London at 1996. I was surprised as I'd enjoyed both of their music off and on for some time. The first track I listened to here reminds me of that tragic day. Connors distorting his guitars and doing his best Eddie Van Halen impersonation. Thankfully by track two he's got it out of his system and the usual pastoral calm of his records is restored. This of course is a good thing. For the uninitiated Connors is like an American Vini Reilly, a guitarist of wonderful precision and technique who is at his best when he keeps things simple. This is a re-issue from 1994 and is simply guitar. The music is gentle and relaxed but you are often forced to ask the question, where does the pastoral charm of this end and the fret-wank of Mark Knopfler begin? Its a fine line and Connors straddles it to worrying effect. I'd prefer more of the under water sounding evocations he has produced but all that said this is a historical document and not a new release, its limited to 500 and collectors of his work will want to get hold of it pronto.
