1950年代から活動、狂気的コメディを作るフィルムメーカーでありアート・パフォーマー、音楽家、更にはシャーマン(?)と称し、ビートルズやスロッビング・グリッスルとも共演をして来た英国の超奇才エキセントリック前衛作家Bruce Lacey。家庭用品と改造シンセサイザーを用い作られた、リチュアル・コンクレート、ガビガビのアブストラクト持続音、エレクトリック・トランスまで、まさに意味不明且つ多岐に渡るブッ飛んだサウンドワークスを纏めたTrunk Recordsの偉業的一枚。氏の音源は当時の展示会にて極たまにカセットで入手出来た程度だったという、本当に貴重な集成です。大推薦。









CD edition. Bruce Lacey is the quintessential British eccentric. Bruce Lacey is an artist, a musician, a filmmaker, a shaman, a genius and visionary. Since the 1950s he's made film, music, art and performances, and collaborated with everyone from The Beatles to Throbbing Gristle. He was part of the groundbreaking Cybernetic Serendipity exhibition in 1968. He even built a robot that won the Alternative Miss World. This is the first time his extraordinary music has been released. Made and recorded using household objects as well as a modified synthesizer (made by a schoolboy in the early 1970s), it ranges from abstract tribal concrète to droning electronic trance. The music will be released across two separate LPs and one CD. Included will be a fine essay about the history of this inspiring figure by BFI/Flipside archivist Will Fowler. Bruce Lacey has been a busy man. Since the 1950s he's been making film, making music, making art, sculpture, rituals, performances, and more besides. Many of his films have explored the basics of life and sex all with a sprinkle of irony, realism and ritualism. Many of his films have required music, music which Lacey made himself, improvising with bottles, rattles, typewriters and a tape machine. By the early 1970s, Lacey was exploring stone circles and ancient rights; he'd also bought a home-made synthesizer from a schoolboy who'd advertised it in Exchange & Mart. He'd made it as a home project. A week later Lacey bought a keyboard from another schoolboy in Exchange & Mart. Lacey set about slowly modifying this synth and improvising music influenced by his stone circle visits over the next few years. This music is made only when "The Muse" descends. It is impossible for Bruce to perform this improvised music live. The music he made was occasionally available on cassette at his exhibitions in the 1970s. The late Poly Styrene (who had a copy) compared Lacey's music to Tangerine Dream. Lacey had not heard of Tangerine Dream. This is the first time this raw and extraordinary music by one of the UK's most extraordinary men has been made available. Full-color LP sleeve. Includes copious notes and an essay.
