- The Ghosts Of Bush by Robin the Fog (Howlround)
9/10 Brian Staff review, 21 December 2012
Well this is another of those fascinating archive experimental gems, the source material of which has probably laid gathering dust for years because Robin the Fog most likely recorded it for his own pleasure, not realising that one day hundreds of outsider sound fanatics would want to own a collection of his eerie nocturnal location sound recordings. He produced much of the source material on his night shifts at The BBC’s World Service headquarters Bush house. That’s what this album is, it’s a desolate, spooky twilight prowl of a listen that will indeed appease fans of Chris Watson, The Caretaker, our lovely Billy Basinski, Radiophonic Workshop and often the chilling scare-scapery of Aphex’s SAW2.
Here he’s manipulated and spliced all his most effective sounding passages and profoundly sinister pieces on quarter inch reel-to-reel machines to create a remarkable album that spills with cracked menace, dusty hauntology, musique concrete industrialism, dingy disintegrating ambience and hugely unnerving ephemera. There’s snatches of spectral voices, murky tape deterioration and the aura of something trying to break through from a frightening alternative dimension.
‘The Ghosts of Bush’ is an essential collection of drone-noir, displaced noise, chamber-ambience, vintage electronics and the heart-stopping sound of the dark, dark night. Wonderful!
