Pop producer, musician, lothario, and local man about town Richard Formby has a new release out on Preserved Sound. It’s a minimally packaged CD in a brown cardboard thingy with a sticker depicting various soundwaves on it. Fresh from recording the Ghostpoet album Mr Formby takes us on a journey into the electronic cosmos courtesy of a modular synthesizer and a cassette deck. Who needs spaceships?!
You get one 30 minute track for your money and we’ve handily put up the first 30 seconds of it which is pretty much no use to anyone. As the cover and title might suggest this is an electronic number which has its roots in experimental electronics. I’m kinda trancing out to this and I’m finding it hard to write about. Mainly cos I think of something, get sucked into the melodies and the warm droney synth noises and then forget what I was going to write. It’s not as minimal as I thought it was going to be at all as there’s loads going on and it’s totally cosmic! Fans of the German electronic bods of the early '70s (Conrad Schnitzler etc) will get totally lost in this 30 mins of cosmicity!!
