- Inversions (Study Series 08) by Belbury Poly and The Advisory Circle
9/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 20 June 2012
Don’t reckon it matters what I say about this Belbury Poly/The Advisory Circle split 7” on Ghost Box. Everyone loves these 7” - and these lads - and the label - and ‘The Study Series’ - and all that old BBC Library music. It’s like scientific fact innit mate.
So these kindred artists have teamed up to compete in ‘The Study Series’ - a collection of 7”s inspired by a series of BBC school books from way back that go by the same name.
The Advisory Circle kick things off with a cover of Belbury’s ‘Wildspot’ from their first album. I’ve not heard the original but The Advisory Circle’s version is typically library music-esque, super English sounding electronic folk prog. As you can imagine, it sounds mint.
Flip it and Belbury Poly take on The Advisory Circle’s more recent ‘Now Ends The Beginning’ which they re-imagine as a blissful folk pop song in keeping with an electronic reworking of ‘Corn Riggs’ from Paul Giovanni and Magnet’s Wicker Man Soundtrack but with a sort of baggy Stereolab bass-line and of course, that naggingly familiar library music synth vibe.
