Jon Collin

Jon Collin is the proprietor of Winebox Press – a UK company that makes some of the most incredible hand-wrought cassette packages ever... Winebox also puts out certain releases in "trade" editions, and Collin's High Peak Selections LP is one of the first. Acoustic string improvs of great abstraction, clanger and depth, recalling a certain vibe that Loren Connors once called his own, although there's no aping here. Lots of dizzy inventions of clustered strings that manage to maintain a certain melodic beauty for all their weirdness. There are even bits of wobbled slide and sustain that recall Fahey at his loosest. Totally boss. (Byron Coley, Arthur Magazine)

This spine-tingling album by Jon Collin is six-string primitivism taken to a whole other level of wildness and intuition.” – Derek Walmsley, The Wire

Across the four tracks on his second LP, Jon Collin reiterates his interest in mining the emotional potential of the guitar, utilising a vast grasp of the capabilities of the instrument... His grasp on the relationship between the resonant qualities of the hollow-bodied guitar and the wails of feedback and reverberation produced by the amplifier is extraordinary.” – Matt Krefting, The Wire
