What the actual fook… Sonic Cathedral has gone all out on a stonking lickle package for this record. If you’re a bit squeamish then you might wanna stop reading… The story goes that the song ‘Welcoming The Flowers’ was inspired by a conversation at a wedding where a family friend told a band member a shocking and very sad tale of how someone had jumped to their death from a bridge on the M1 and landed on their windscreen. Expanding on the songs theme, they’ve created a Ballardian ‘Crash’ style package which includes a record pressed on windscreen clear vinyl, wrapped in a sleeve covered with tyre marks and inside there is a digital download card, a bag of sand, an air freshener and a lyric sheet in a child’s handwriting.
The original track is presented here as a WTF version - a menacing, scowling noise rock juggernaut with guttural, churning bass and searing guitars. The brutality of it all softened slightly by Joe Hatt’s vocals.
They’ve curated a stellar bunch of five artists to remix various other cuts from their ‘Condition’ album. Metrist (Opal Tapes, Where To Now? Fifth Wall) turns in a heavy, clunking and juddering broken techno remix of ‘Dissolve’ in his signature style, with booming woody drums and all sorts of metallic rattling and clattering. French Margot transforms ‘Neck’ into an uptempo thumper with ethereal, gothic/angelic vocals before the whole thing collapses and rebuilds into a stirring tension filled wall of feedback/noise. Elvin Brandhi of brilliant, mentalist father-daughter noise duo Yeah You turns ‘End Waltz’ into a glorious mess of disorientating layered vocals and metallic firework like percussion before it descends into a big gloomy industrial racket. Young Bristol whipper snapper Silver Waves absolutely destroys with his ace, proper nasty mix of ‘Neck’ sounding like a tug-o-war between Scorn and Venetian Snares. Then fellow Bristolian Mun Sing aka Harry Wright from Giant Swan closes the set with a scorching, dislocated half stepper mix of ‘End Waltz’ which is dirtier than a mouldy 1983 first issue copy of Razzle.
