Duncan Bruce

Biography

What makes this album great is the aforementioned brevity of the pieces.
Duncan spans all shapes of the volume curve, sliding through landscapes of barren glacial shifts, torn loudspeaker edits and ye olde drone, and letting the feedback go as it were, all done to a virtually perfect effect for the perfect amount of time.
– Freedom From
Later recordings have featured the likes of Tim Cornelius (Sandoz Lab Technicians), Clayton Noone (The Futurians), Lee Noyes, Matt Middleton (Crude) etc.

Nigel Bunn

Biography

Trumpets blow out of walls, guitars shoot auditory tendrils out of the earth like upward lunging ivy plants, organs drone and lurch and steam like black rain clouds from the next to last days, speckled electronic tones dance across the spectrum like gas bubbles belched out of a catfish’s burrow and into some hidden eddy that spins it miles away before it hits the surface.
– Bill Meyer

A textually inclined song-smith with connections to Alistair Galbraith, Bunn has been very slow at releasing his recorded material, with Index¬†(his debut full length) surfacing almost a decade after Galbraith included his ‘Goodbye God Baby Goodbye‘ on the Killing Capitalism with Kindness compilation.
