6/10 Clinton Staff review, 20 December 2012
Once upon a time I was staying in a house in Welwyn Garden City. Adding to the glamorous setting was the fact that the only space to sleep was in a kitchen where the dog normally slept. In order to stretch out satisfactorily I had my head pressed against a fridge. All night I lay there with the throbbing, undulating sounds of the fridge working their way into my cranium, driving me slowly insane.
The drones of this record are so...you know...minimal that at least one of my colleagues has just asked if we could put some music on. They throught the low end hum was that of a lorry parked outside. The record has also been described by the manager of this establishment as sounding like the inner workings of Doctor Who’s tardis. It consists of two ‘songs’, the first weighs in at a paltry 21 minutes whilst the second fleshes it out to 51 minutes. 70 minutes of minimalist sound art and low end frequency recordings by someone who is an expert in the genre. However, both the music and the packaging which could be described as...um...simple, fail to move me in any way, shape or form.
