Straight _ Bad Blood
Manchester based electroacoustic drone artist Straight (aka Stephen McLaughlin) finally gets round to releasing some material after a year spent building up his live repuation at Sprawl, hippocamp and soundnetwork events as well as putting together a memorable day of music for futuresonic in 06. The material was put together during an intensive recording and processing marathon over the Halloween period and is infused with a sense of drama, distance and, as it builds, boils over into an atmosphere of creeping fear and amplifier worship. Keep an eye out for more ambitious live operations and the launch of a CDR label in 07. www.myspace.com/stephenmclaughlin.
All guitar, piano, interference and processing by Stephen McLaughlin.
Thanks to Tim for putting this out and anyone whos helped me down the line, especially my lovely lady Bex for driving duties and more support than you could imagine.
