Blue Field Entopic Phenomena (TRI 27)

Blue Field Entoptic Phenomena

CD out of stock. Temporarily available only as a download

Blue Field Entoptic Phenomena is the first 46,000 Fibres release in over 11 years.
Formed in the mid ’90s ‘the Fibres’ spent 10 years playing improvised music & were a feature of various Kosmische club appearances, being the first to play there.

Recorded after a 10 year lay off from live performances it features main stalwarts Tonal D., on synths & Leon Maurice-Jones on percussives. Plus Justin Paton, from cult band NOW, who was part of the group, returning to play guitar & synth. Howard Jacques rounds off the quartet in his first foray with ‘the Fibres’ on bass, synth & various exotic instruments. He has sinced joined the Band of Holy Joy on bass guitar.

This nine track collection was edited down from a continous two hour take! The worry of not playing together for so long soon evaporated, resulting in, probably, their most coherent, well produced & dare we say listenable albums to date. Like a cross between Tangerine Dream & Faust, with English psych influences, fans of those musics should inner-vestigate.

A video for the track Neutral can be found here

Concert 24 – Sets 1 & 3 (TRI 22)

22

This officially sanctioned release is a live recording from late 1998.
Released as a memorial CD to Lol, who passed away last year.
Set 1 starts with Lol & ‘the Fibres’ then towards the end, Hawkwind legend Nik Turner arrives to add his improvised sax. This was Nik’s first experience of total free playing, he has since said.
Set 3 sees them all pile in for a great blowing & riffing experience & is quite intense…
46,000 Fibres are best described as somewhere between AMM & Faust, with their own distinctive take.

A special release for a more than special musician that is Lol Coxhill.

The Freedom Offensive (TRI 7)

7

Available as CD or download

Recorded in response to the Iraq war situation, ‘the Fibres’ really let rip, with a new line up, that’s all funked & jazzed up in a hard Soft Machine / Miles Davis / krautjazz sort of way.

Recorded live in the studio, it’s no holds barred & radical….

The 5th Anniversary Concerts (TRI 1/3)

3

This live concert is from the same time & venue as the previous entry. Due to the long sets, a planned duet with Lol had to be foregone.
This set is with the Hawk legend Nik Turner, blowing free & hard.
On some passages Nik also plays sublime flute in ‘quite a psychedelic 58 minute epic’ of a set…
+ arkive track

The 5th Anniversary Concerts (TRI 1/2)

2

This live concert features soprano saxophone master Lol Coxhill in an almost sonic, industrial sounding 48 minute set, recorded Upstairs at The Garage in March 1999.
Lol played eleven times with ‘the Fibres’, so they must have been doing something right!

This is a 48 minute set + arkive track

The 5th Anniversary Concerts (TRI 1/1)

1

For their 5th year together, in 1999, ‘the Fibres’ decided to hold some live concerts with their friends.
This one features the telephonic enigma that is Scanner at the height of that infamy with his beats & loops.
‘The Fibres’ provide their best improvised soundscapes in the AMM mould.

54 minute set + arkive track
