EXPO '70 - FILER A L'ANGLAISE (LP)


"Next up on Deep Distance is the long promised mighty new EXPO '70 full length. Released as a pressing of 500 only on mauve, red and black splatter wax with embossed DD insert. The LP features 3 extended jams from the latter days of the working relationship between mainman Justin Wright and Matt Hill (prior to his wonderful recordings under the Umberto moniker). Recently unearthed by Justin specifically for this vinyl release (although watch out for an extended version for cassette only later) the set starts with the wonderful zoned out pulse of "Acerbic Lament" interspersed by JWs piercing guitar tones and textures. "Winter of Discontent" is more organic, otherworldly and in places reminiscent of some of the early Popol Vuh catalogue. The reverse features the epic sidelong "Ceremony of the Blind"; constituting 3 parts and to these ears represents one of the finest sides to the huge Expo '70 catalogue. A compelling cosmic soundscape punctuated by evolving waves of carefully constructed synth and guitar drone with flurries of percussive pulse, particularly on the closing section "Eternal The Night". Another essential addition to the ever growing Expo '70 collection- a one off pressing on gorgeous coloured wax with 2 inserts in awesome JW designed sleeve." (label info)
