Far from being associated with some kind of sinister sect, the Cults Percussion Ensemble is named after the Aberdeen suburb from which its members – 11 school pupils – originated. Assembled by percussionist Ron Forbes, the outfit had, at the time of recording, an average age of just 14. The LP was produced in 1979, and the children played music written especially for them on a delightful blend of glockenspiels, xylophones and timpani drums. The sounds created are remarkable- shimmering and celestial with chiming layers of rhythm and melody. The range and breadth of pieces played is exceptional - the Ensemble dart between the bossa shuffle of ‘Baia’ to the dreamlike wash of ‘Circles’ seamlessly.
