Public Information return after a two-year hiatus with a expertly compiled compilation of early electronics from avant-garde electrician musician Malcolm Pointon.
Much like the labels highly valued Tomorrow's Achievements, Happy Machine compilations and the vastly important Electronics Without Tears album of material by F.C. Judd, Electromuse shines a light on the lesser known sonic explorations of Malcolm Pointon, beamed right in from his self-built synths circa 1974.
Having had an illustrious career that saw him working with BBC Radio, and Homerton College, Cambridge where his speciality was modern and improvised music coming from a non-Western angle, these recordings capture the Malcolm at his most experimental with sounds that echo of great British greyscale industrialists such as Throbbing Gristle and the murkier ends of the Downwards associate Anthony Burnham, while this collection could be compared to the Finders Keepers T.R.A.S.E. album for lost discoveries of eccentrically clad, shed bound electronics.
There are many 'lost' artefacts and electronic waves being discovered and repackaged in the endless sea of reissues, but with their beautifully executed editions Public Information is the reel deal.
Public Information will be donating all profits of this release to the Alzheimer’s Society, helping to support people with dementia and their carers on their long journey, right here and now.
