Format: LP
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand

Price: $22.00
Limited edition of 444. Includes hand-numbered certificate. "Tape Recordings 1975-1985 features work from Kevin Harrison. Kevin Harrisons music is guitar orientated. But treated and mutated. Harrison is no ordinary guitar hero: his playing shimmers like light reflected on water. His work is reminiscent of a cross between Brian Eno, Michael Rother and Eric Random. While in the ambient field, it balances a lot more in the direction of contemporary electronics and a heavier sound. Nevertheless, his influences are very clear. A minimal psychedelicist at heart, Harrisons is the music of the hypnotic state, of dream and trance. Its core is an obvious affection for the work of Terry Riley, Philip Glass, Kraftwerk and The Normal tempered with an awareness of oriental rhythms and harmonies which give the elemental electronics a warmer, human touch. With Harrisons deft handling his squeaks and buzzes, his synthesized loop tables and his drum machines "Inscrutably Obvious" seems like it will prove horribly inaccessible. But once properly investigated it offers a sparklingly seductive selection of tracks wholeheartedly recommended to anybody looking for entertainment from the avant-garde. Chas de Whalley on Harrison: "No guitar heroes next cause its Kevin Harrison. I could listen to his excellent stuff all night. What he does is guitar improvisations with the guitar put through lots of reel-to-reel echo units and other such things. This means he only has to fall over his guitar and it sounds good good good good. The result is similar to Fripp/Eno collaborations with layers of rejected guitar sounds. It sounds much better than I can be bothered to write it, if youre curious go and see him do his act." - Vinyl-On-Demand.
