Further Perspectives & Distortion - British Experimental & Avant-Garde Music 76-84 - 3CD
"Further Perspectives And Distortion’ presents a snapshot of the UK's experimental and avant-garde music scene, observed through the paradigm-shifting lense of the post punk revolution and bringing together disparate names from across the experimental spectrum. This is a long-overdue look at the ‘other side’ of the freedom offered by the tectonic shifts in the musical landscape in 1976 and 1977.
From speed-fuelled kids bursting with raw talent and homemade electronic gizmos to trained composers and writers with a new, fresh audience to explore, herein lay the flipside of the independent explosion and the newfound ability to find homes (and stockists) for even the most unruly of sounds. 58 tracks from establshed names to lesser known experimentalists and explorers, including The Pop Group, Throbbing Gristle, Soft Machine, 23 Skidoo, Nurse With Wound, Robert Fripp, This Heat, Gavin Bryars, and many more.
