1979/80年頃にRobert Haigh、Trefor Goronwy、Trevor Reidyの三人でTruth Clubを結成、その後Trefor Goronwyが脱退した後新たにユニット名をFoteとし活動したイギリスのエクスペリメンタル/アートロックバンド。81年に残した2枚の12インチ[Perfect Sense]、[Shaking The House]をカップリングし、一枚のLPとしてRobot Recordsがリマスター再発！！ポストパンク、フリーフォームな即興を軸とし、またNurse With WoundやDiana Rogersonの作品にも参加していたTrevor Reidyのパーカッションが、何とも言えない変則的感覚を生み続ける傑作盤。この編集再発は本当に嬉しい限り。マスト。
Shaking the House
Following the short-lived Truth Club with Trefor Goronwy (who later went on to work with This Heat and The Camberwell Now), Fote was formed in 1981 with the trio of Robert Haigh, Deborah Harding, and Trevor Reidy. Releasing two 12" EP's along with one track featured on a split 7" with Truth Club, Fote's entire studio recordings consisted of just 8 tracks. With angular constructs of post-punk, free-form improvisations, and wicked time signatures, these tracks shredded boundaries one can still hear to this day. These early foundations are also heard in much of Haigh's later Sema compositions as well as Reidy's motorik percussion with Nurse with Wound, Danielle Dax, and The Monochrome Set. Curiously, Harding's vocal tensions and outright unhinged polarities in Fote sound like much of the exorcisms and brilliant psychodramas on many of Chrystal Belle Scrodd's (Diana Rogerson) later solo albums. Cut at 45 rpm for maximum fidelity, including all 8 tracks, and featuring the original sleeve artwork by Deborah Harding. An absolutely essential document from the early 80s independent British post-punk scene.
