The third in a series of four Strange Fish vinyls by Fruits de Mer Records. A double LP compilation of kosmische/motorik/sequencer/electronic/Neu!/Tangerine Dream /Klaus Schultze-influenced tracks .
Strange fish three is a bit of a ‘Head Music’ reunion for most of the people featured here – is that a good thing? Well, Fruits de Mer’s club members voted it their favourite FdM release of 2012, which is not a bad start.
As for the FdM newbies. The Golden Cake Company are a group of improvising musicians making electronic, ambient music, primarily using analogue synthesizers; based in the Welsh Marches region of the UK, the core membership is Simon Lewis (also Phoenix Cube), Stephen Palmer (Mooch) and Geoff Puplett – they cite Tangerine Dream as an influence.
These are Dead Pylons’ first recordings, but they comprise members of Hi-Fiction Science, who Fruits de Mer regulars already know and love.
