The Abyss
12" Vinyl

Product Description

Following their impressive ‘three tracks’ 10” on fellow Bristol-label ‘FuckPunk’, which launched Vessel & chester giles ‘asda’ project early 2015, we are very excited to present their first full-length 12” release, featuring six of the most vigorous recordings from the two Young Echo members.

New age punk, broken electronics, modern poetry, noise music, crushed dancehall – call it whatever you like. but whatever you do – when you are faced with the abyss make sure you listen carefully and take it for all it represents. No streamline bollocks or trend-latching. This is unedited, unadulterated music made by two individuals, with no aims to please or adhere, no intention to hide. Maybe it’s a joyful noise, but it could also be described as an anguished cry, a venting of despair, the last fumes of a burning fire, not willing to give up, aware of the fact that most of it’s reach is already in ashes, or simply ‘too plastic’ to burn, too washed out to feel the pain.

When trying to find out more about the abyss, we were made aware of a quote by this guy called ‘clellon holmes’ who wrote an article about the beat generation and said ‘the valueless abyss of modern life is unbearable’. Perhaps this signalled the title? Or as chester said to us:

‘the abyss is the unending banality of life and the emptiness of continuing to exist for no reason through mindless crushing pain and futility. i think maybe its about feeling vulnerable and fragile in a very raw way, like peeling off our skins and just standing there sore and bloody waiting for it to end’.

Total consumption, the all encompassing feeling… Nothing else matters. Mastered and cut by Lewis at Stardelta. Served with lung poster, asda ‘receipt’ and a run of inkstamps. 180gm vinyl.
