life underwater

  1. gills vs gulls
  2. life underwater
  3. octopus meets bagpipes, unsure
  4. rays

These ‘albums’ were the first publicly-available midwich stuff and the first two releases on ffr.  They were recorded quickly and wear their influences prominently: Nurse With Wound (especially in the short tracks and track titles), pan sonic (especially in the endurance-testing ‘too early’), Vibracathedral Orchestra (in droney feel, I know it doesn’t sound like them) and various electronic stuff I was listening to at the time.

Despite feeling a bit unfinished, I’m proud of tracks like the icy ‘every day is the same’ and ‘rays’ – the warm bubbling of the latter became a bit of a signature style.  They also set the template for the ‘standard’ midwich release – four(ish) tracks alternating between short and spiky and long and droney.  God, this is self indulgent isn’t it?  I’m enjoying this…
