I really like two thirds of this record – I really like the incredibly disturbing circuit howling that comes towards the end of track 5 . I adore the tight as barbed wire Electrolyte which flashes and pops rawness while rusted corrugated iron and arabesque guitar lines battle for your attention. The rhymic stabs are reminiscant of the best of early PiL which to me is high praise. I like the bleak opening track which fools you into expecting an explosion (in the sky, so to speak) but heads off down a stark disco route instead. I like the rhythmic minimalism of some of the more krautrocking sections, journeys that do seem to go somewhere, driving through intermanable chemical factories towards a unamed destination which you discover is a verdant forest that hides a huge cathedral. I like the big grunge chords over some wierd electronic penny whistle that appears half way through the album. I like the way the whole thing flows as a continuous piece. I am impressed as to the fact that two people can summon such diversity and richness. I think I am clear in saying, there is plenty to like.

I don’t like some of the more expansive guitar work and some of the more droney sections could be a bit more, well, ‘droney.’ – It’s not to say that Daniel Vincent and Dominic Hemy don’t conjure up some big fucking squalls of darkness, cos they do, but a few sections could feel a bit more, er, organic. I’d like to think with a few more field recordings and a little less axe magic, this could be a sledgehammer of an album. All in all though, if your head’s full of dark clouds and lets face it, who in their right mind hasn’t got such a build up of cranial interferance, switch of the lights and plug in your headphones to take a trip through half built pre packed grey box factories in a car on autopilot.

Hey, it’s not all post indie, bhangra and dancehall here y’know…

This was my first time at the annual firework display and if the experience of walking in a large crowd through darkened narrow streets arround the castle wasn’t medieval enough for me, I don’t know what would be. It’s amazing that this half hour display is free and all credit to the council and whoever else is involved cos it was pretty spectacular, even if there was a few ‘incidents’ of burning firework bits dropping into the crowd. I hope no-one was hurt.

Anyway, here’s a few pics for you.

and finally….

BANG!!!
