“Some of the prime and often entirely legitimate criticisms of music deemed to be experimental are that it’s kind of pretentious, elitist even, and really not that much fun. Well, just to be clear, the debut full-length solo album from End of the Alphabet Records’ founder Noel Meek isn’t flippant or silly in any way. But it is a hell of a lot of fun to explore.” – Six Noises
“This new one's a dandy. Not unlike Shandar-era Terry Riley trapped in the back of a moving van in an airport parking lot.” – Byron Coley, The WIRE
British avant-pop chamber drone artist Alexander Tucker released his album, Third Mouth, on Thrill Jockey in 2012 to widespread acclaim, including best of year charts in The Wire and Quietus. His live shows fuse self-harmonizing vocal performances with tone generators and looped instrumentation to create a bewildering feast for the senses that seems to tap the wyrd canon of English psychedelia as much as the melodic reverie of contemporary electronic and drone music.
Neil Campbell has been active on the lunatic fringe of underground music since at least 1979. In that time he has performed and recorded widely as solo performer, ad hoc collaborator and core member of groups such as Vibracathedral Orchestra, A Band and Astral Social Club. His collaborations are myriad, including Richard Youngs, Campbell Kneale, High Wolf, Grumbling Fur, John Clyde-Evans, Filthy Turd, Oren Ambarchi, Ashtray Navigations, Spider Stacy, David Larcher, Blood Stereo, John Olson and Matthew Bower. Writers have described him variously as "a one-man subculture", a "grandfather figure" with "hallucinogenically inclined pallet". Neil shares his birthday with Grace Jones, Malcolm X, Ho Chi Minh, Pol Pot and Joey Ramone - LOOKOUT!
