The WIRe

“Echoing the interests of Heresy’s founder… Eric Fraad, many of the contributors here are active across disciplinary borders… Nevertheless, Fraad is a tour guide with an agenda, and on his map most roads lead to Daniel Figgis… credited as composer, musician or producer on seven of these tracks…”

“…Timothy Cream’s Crown of Wines, with Vincent Doherty, (is) an 11 minute dream-waltz that brushes listeners’ faces with feathery mellotron, flute and owl hoots before spiriting their subconscious into more absurdist realms of lurching chords and half-heard speech.”

“…2003’s Avant Garde Your Grille sees Deep Burial’s George Brennan and Richard Howard rework Figgis’s recordings… all jutting edges and cloudy, churning surfaces.”
