Long awaited album from Jah Wobble's Deep Space group, now featuring Philip Jeck! "In early 1999 I formed the group Deep Space. The idea was to mix ancient and awe inspiring pipe sounds, (courtesy of JP Rasle and C Bell) played over a fluid and ever changing (in terms of mode, rhythm, tempo and time signature) rhythm section (courtesy of drummer M Sanders and your humble narrator). The other starting premise was a desire to incorporate the layered textures of electronic music, particularly of the music concrete variety. This 'electronic aspect' was, over the subsequent years and much to my frustration only ever occasionally satisfied, (Paul Shutze on Beach Fervour Spare for example). This situation seems to have been rectified by the addition of the irrepressible P Jeck and his record players. Also featured on this album are C Cookson on guitar, as well as my old friend and master trumpeter Mr H Beckett. These last two musicians combine well, bringing a particular 'chordal' and melodic sensibility into the melange, specifically in regard to track 4. The last track features a vocalist both versatile and daring; Ms C Von-Trapp. I am very happy with this recording. I am inclined to feel 'mission accomplished'. In which case I will write elevator music at home for the foreseeable future." -- JW.
