SINKING INFINITIES - Thousand-Year Reich
As we now know via Mr Conrad, Mr Cale, Mr Licht and\r\nthe reissue programs of the world, minimalism in its\r\ninfancy had a high birth weight and screamed for its\r\nfucking dinner. No gentle whisps of wind, this, but a\r\nblunt seismic shudder that was felt around the world\r\nin countless forms but sharing at its heart a\r\nprimitive, immersive love of volume, stasis and the\r\nriff that stops time. So enters this tribute of sorts\r\nfrom the duo of Jon Chapman (ex-DOUBLE LEOPARDS; Rory\r\nStorm & The Invaders) and Jim Currin (ex-Three Forks;\r\nRay Off) who, without thinking about it too much, or\r\nhardly at all in fact, take some of the moves inherent\r\nin the evolution of minimal thought such as those\r\nthat may be seen in the still-ongoing career of one\r\nSteve Reich and use them as a takeoff point for a\r\nblitz of soaring drone, clutzy phasing tableaus, and\r\nchronic, chronic noise, always with an ear open for\r\nthose strange cross-rhythmed universes that have\r\nmelted hearts ever since he first came out to show\r\nthem. Somewhat indicative of the madness that\r\nenveloped the pair on their recent Australian tour,\r\nthis follows on from the icy electric floatings of\r\ntheir debut Forever Young, and will be bookended\r\nlater this year by the natural follow-up, The Life Of\r\nRiley - United Fairy Moons.
