WALKER, RUSSELL - I Never See My Pal
Edition of 100. -¢‚Ǩ-ì-¢‚Ǩ-ìThe classic book, so readable now.-¢‚Ǩ¬ù Footsteps and a passing automobile introduce daily comedy and the droll slake of boredom. Vitrine is honored to announce the newest release by British artist Russell Walker, I never see my pal. Russell Walkers work inhabits an impressive and idiosyncratic sector, from the frayed post-punk of the Phermoans to the synth preambles of the Bomber Jackets. This alone makes Walker an intriguing contemporary figure. His work in the Charcoal Owls, Teleporters and under his own name, on the other hand, paints a Pickmans Model of parochial malaise and out of bounds art rock. I never see my pal compiles, for the first time on cassette, two rare and deleted Savoury Days CDrs. -¢‚Ǩ-ìYou wouldnt have got them if I didnt like-¢‚Ǩ¬¶these. I want these.-¢‚Ǩ¬ù While Side As Willow Session contrasts field recordings with penumbral acoustic sketches, The Thwartee of Side B combines dour shortwave with the eldritch banality of Mark E Smiths the Post-Nearly Man. Musicality is drained of semblance and incidental sound gains fragile primacy. Crude keyboard. Television from the other room. Wind interference. Guitar and voice made strange and uncommon. Words smell of stale beer. The nightmare is the accuracy of life on dreadful display. Casual occurrence falls into inevitability. Heres another chance to pick up two of the most confounding and vital releases of the past five years. -¢‚Ǩ-ìI want to change what people see when they look at me.-¢‚Ǩ¬ù - Vitrine.
