View Detail

Legendary filmmaker, musician & author van peebles teams with uk jazz outfit to create an interplanetary space/love odyssey told in twelve chapters. in between drummer malcolm catto’s thunderous syncopation & jake ferguson’s bellowing bass lines, amidst the analogue electronics & atmospheric interference naturally accorded by their organic analogue process, van peebles’ voice floats in & out, spectral in its tone, complete in its conviction of love’s ability to transform & transcend death, as he weaves an intergalactic ‘rime of the ancient mariner’. channels something of the spirit of gil scott heron’s curtain call ‘i’m new here’ while drawing parallels to the more experimental leanings of lonnie holley.
