1. "Mohika" is a haunting, resonant piano miniature by the American composer Bruce Hamilton.
2. Electronics and vocals duet from Viv Corringham and Iris Garrelfs- playful and wistful and at times evoking some of the earliest works of Musique Concrete.
3. A startling piece of glitchy electronica from the Bellowhead drummer and arranger Pete Flood- washes of orchestral noise over microscopic twists and turns.
4. Stump/Prescott bassist gives us a rather lovely twangy guitar instrumental-a reminder that as well as writing fiendishly complicated and quirky riffs, Kev is a great melodicist.
5. Duncan Goddard of kosmiche heavyweights "Radio Massacre International" provides a virtual orchestra of doomy and plangent chords over an uneasy bed of murky rippling sequencers.
6. Soprano saxophone solo from Mark Browne -starts as quite a lyrical excursion, but as ends as a series of blasting urgent alarm calls...
7. "Coele-Syria" is a truly beautiful piece from Dead Voices On Air - Feldman-esque two note piano over shifting chords, full of sadness and loss.
8. Paul May and Peter Marsh (ostensibly a bass and drums duo) starts of with a train rhythm before melting into a series of electronic decompositions.
9. "ShiverTipple" is drone piece constructed from two previously unreleased drone works "Shiver" and "Tipple" (unsurprisingly) with bits of a melodeon improvisation added for good measure.
10. Solaris was formed in Middlesbrough in 1974 by three (just) teenagers. They continue to meet and record 40 years later. "Suit of Tin" blends sampled guitar stabs, electronics, recorders and squeezebox into a neo-EFS concoction.
11. Mysterious sounds from Whitby based sound artist Chris Whitehead - some kind of bowed string leads to massive deep feedback, other indistinct sounds add to an atmosphere of unease and tension.
12. London oddball popsters The Original Beekeepers start with shortwave noise and theremin before a haunting melody on pianos and accordions appears.
13. "Two Figures in a Picnic Area" finds two long-term collaborators ("The Happy End" "The Horse Trio" etc) weaving improvised saxophone lines around each other tohypnotic effect.
14. Colin Webster's deep sax explorations interacting with a dusty soundworld created from old walkmans and found tapes evoking a sense of misremembered history.
15. Jude takes a Reuters story of the effects of a different civil war and adds a lovely melody and an insistent Martin Rev style backing noise.
16. Glasgow sound artist skitter mangles some dialogue into a construction of twisted noise and feverish squalls.
17. The album concludes with British folk-blues legend Mike Cooper's cover of possibly the most devastating anti-war song ever written. Characteristically he also adds discordant piano stabs (from the great Alvin Curran of MEV) and a brief scorching free jazz burn-up coda.
So go get it.
