The Trilogy Tapes
Catalogue Number
Release Date
January 26, 2021


The Trilogy Tapes looks to veteran Aberdeen artist, Kitchen Cynics, for an album of archival material. Kitchen Cynics (AKA Alan Davidson) has released around 100 albums, dating back to 1988. Beads Upon An Abacus collects music from his various, long-forgotten cassette and CD releases. It’s the journey of an intriguing character told through folk music, piano pieces and strange electronic experiments. Killer curation as ever from Will Bankhead’s label.
