GOATHERDER - SOOTHER OF GRIEF






















TOR55. 2017

01. Soother of Grief I
02. Short Term Memory Loss Replaced by Nostalgia that Never Existed
03. Soother of Grief II


Between late 2014 and early 2017, I archived any recordings I made; field recordings, demos,
experiments and so on. I put them to one side, unsure of what to do with them.

Occasionally I would review an experiment or refer to a demo. It occurred to me that most of these
recordings would go nowhere, so I decided to give them a home.



In February and March of this year I 'performed' collages of these tracks, the live mix being the
performance.

The end result is like an aural mind diary; ideas and sounds all together. It makes some kind of
sense to me.

As always, there is a free download over at Bandcamp.

SPACEMEN 3 - BIG CITY/DRIVE





















Fire Records 1991.

01. Big City (Everybody I Know Can Be Found Here)
02. Drive
03. Big City (Waves of Joy Demo)
04. Drive (Demo)

'Big City'/'Drive' was released ahead of the final Spacemen 3 album 'Recurring'. Sporadically recorded and mixed throughout 1990, relations between Kember and Pierce had completely broken down during the sessions. The result was that each composer had a side of the record each for their own compositions.

The music didn't suffer however; 'Big City' was a ten minute acid house pulse and 'Drive' was acid bluesy and hymnal, pointing toward each artists future solo career.
