ECTOGRAM - ELECTRIC DECKCHAIR - CD - ANKST 115 7.00

Ectogram give free reign to their psychedelic sensibilites to visualize an instinctively adventurous rock music that has evolved into the present century unencumbered by nostalgic reverence.

At the same time, they never lose sight of the primal physicality and inquisitive thirst that made this genre so alluring in the first place.

They stretch the limits of their minimal instrumentation: Ann Matthews on vocals & guitar, Alan Holmes on guitar and Maeyc Hewitt on drums, never falling back on mere generic stylings but at times evoking a sonic palette more reminiscent of an arms testing facility than a rock'n'roll trio. Drummer Maeyc stylistically fuses heroes Karl Bartos and Elvin Jones to catapult the listener recklessly through the sonic substructures linking the chromadelic splatter paintings of Ann's vorticist 12-string architectures to the shimmeringly abrasive aural iron filings dragged hither and thither across the soundfield by Alan's neo-fragmentist magnetic 6-string.

Just when it's all on the brink of disintegration, Ann brings it back into crystalline focus with probably the only voice in rock history to have drawn comparisons with both Dagmar Krause and Clare Grogan.

The trio's fourth album ?Electric Deckchair? is the fruit of recent sessions in Bryn Derwen studio with sound wizard Michael Auld at the controls. Several hours of live performances by the group were captured, of both improvisations and compositions, with the only subsequent overdubs being vocals. This has resulted in an album which comes closer to the elusive live Ectogram experience than any previous release. After whittling the results down to a manageable 80+ minutes, the group opted to compile two separate discs of standard LP length, each sequenced to stand as a complete album in its own right. The resulting 2 CD set makes for a much more focussed listening experience than the exhausting 80 minute marathons that have become the norm in the digital age, whilst still delivering a full quota of post-tonal sonic thrills. Both discs flit effortlessly between concise 2-3 minute songs and extended 20 minute odysseys in a manner that suggests the group have never been fully familiarised with market targeting. Since finishing the album, Ectogram have been to Germany twice to perform at the Klangbad festival in Scheer and the Schiphorst Avant Garde festival near Hamburg, having been personally invited as guests of krautrock godfathers Faust.

Ectogram will also be special guests on the "Faust in Autumn" UK tour, as well as appearing at the Welsh Film Festival in Cardiff for the premiere of the independent Welsh feature film "Y Lleill" (see details below), to which they provided the soundtrack
