On a month break between tours with Evangelista, Dominic Cramp AKA Qulfus, utilised a web based random number generator and the toss of a coin, to come up with a method of chance operation to select seven of the numbered codes used by the Berkeley Public Library to categorize their CD collection.

Having selected the seven CDs, he used the same methodology to pick 4 tracks on each disk to use as source material. He then wrote each album title on a piece of paper and put them all in a bag. On the morning of the day devoted to composition, he would pick a slip of paper at random out of the bag to see which album he would be working on. Seven pieces written on Seven different days in July of 2009.

CD USA [ aquarius records ] [ squidCo ] * EUROPE [ a-musik }
MP3 [ amazon ] [ itunes ] [ emusic ]

A futurist abstract blues instrumental record heavily influenced by classic soul and dub; a world of echos lost in distant towns; lumbering beasts shuffling through fog.

Cover made from authentic burlap sack.




"...roams freely through the hills and valleys of art-damaged exotica and dank noise soundcapes. The craftily collaged samples and tactile sounds from analog synths, electric bass, pots'n'pans and other unconventional instruments make for a listening experience very much reminiscent of the glorious dark strangeness of Bruce Haack and Gershon Kingsley."
-Aquarius Records
