As said, there will be a new release by Leslie. A spanking new instrumental album by the name of 'Volcanoes'. Believe it that it is smouldered by magma !! During the hiatus of 4 months between the finished recording and the mix of blank walls, Leslie, who backside itchy decided to do an album where he could experiment and see what he can get out of it. And the result... a lava hot album of an interesting and progressive mix of noisy music that reminds me of the band Mandarin Movie. Played, recorded and mix everything himself somemore. One man band vibe. Steady lah. Do buy a copy at the launch. Support!
By the way, Les is wondering if he should name himself "Sonic Bacteria" for this album. That one he must decide for himself. Sonic Bacteria sial !! "Sonic Bacteria with his new album Volcano Amour " I think he's just kidding. Better be. Usual, the designer is the same dude who designed the Blank Walls cover Mr Ferret Yuen Chee Wai, purveyor of unusual designs and ultra small fonts. Don't ask me why his name is Ferret. Manimal scene maybe...
Anyway, Flux Us, the shop at Peninsula Shoppin' Centre will probably stock it after the launch.
They are the experimental nice guys. Experimental but nice. Or Nice and experimental...whichever. Which reminds me that on the 10th Sept there will be another in-store performance by 1) Minister 2) Sembawang Air Experimental Research Station, featuring Harold and Justin Seah, brought to you from the far off lands of Sembawang to a CD store near you and lastly 3) Li Chuan, a composer who has been doing all sorts of experimental music in the arts scene. And a jam session between the 3 after.
