"Not too long ago, John Clyde-Evans made a huge splash with his phenomenal solo LP on Englands Fisheye imprint.  He also performed as an important member of the seminal UK group, Hood.  After taking a seven year hiatus and committing to the path of Sikhism, he returned as Tirath Singh Nirmala.  His continually unfolding backstory is interesting enough, but its his music where the real magic and mystery stretch their silver wings. Nirmala returned to making music after his close friend and collaborator, Vibracathedral Orchestras Neil Campbell, gave him some free software and set him on his way.  Nirmala responded with nearly a dozen self-released, highly limited CD-Rs.  The releases were filled to the brim with Eastern-influenced, transcendental drones and uplifting spiritual sound explorations.  His manipulation of sine waves and use of obscure Asian instruments creates a wholly original and unique sound.  As on his solo LP as John Clyde-Evans, Nirmalas ability to concoct sprawling, majestic drones using such simple terms is unmatched. Bluster, Cragg, & Awe, Nirmalas first non-CD-R release, is the perfect beginning.  It collects the best tracks from those now impossible-to-find releases and adds one new song and one collaborative piece with Scottish guitar guru, Richard Youngs.  It is a journey that lasts less than an hour, but contains a lifetime of aural experience, wrapped into one, shimmering golden package. Oh yes, Tirath Singh Nirmala has returned." - Digitalis.
