Glass Ankle, woo yeah.
that festival with Lee Gamble playing looks decent.
I've been a bit detatched from the scene of late, but I've found myself in the midst of a circle of friends who help run the scene...

glad he's stopped fucking around with uneccessary distortion.
the whole record is more sensuous, more dynamic and more vital than its predecessor (which I loved and still do); I listened for the first time tonight - cycling home slowly through the dark - and it was just sublime, straight away.
I certainly don't rate it as highly as 'Splazsh'; it's missing the spark of life that Cunningham deliberately snuffed out. but I feel a similar intrigue, a sense of depths waiting to be reveal themselves.
Does what great writing about music should and makes you see the music in question in a whole new light. I already loved the record, thought I had it figured, but Calvert's highlighted another level of depth.
I recall them saying it was a five-part thing. 'Remission' = fire, 'Leviathan' = water, 'Blood Mountain' = earth. and 'Crack the Skye' is 'aether'. So this one must be air?
anyway...reliably awesome. comfortably the best metal band of the last ten years.
