A shift from both participants away from their self composed worlds into a terminal collision as Duo Noir. The result is a strident gallop into the past to retrieve the treasures of the early English ascent onto the world stage in differing guises. The ballads mark the shift from the old feudal world announcing the entry into the machine age whilst the DIJ work announces the aspiration of imagination of the post punk renaissance.
The songs are bold announcement of a terminal apocalypse drawn from the deep well of the bitter waters of despair. The eternality of the themes are of murder, remorse and pleading for forgiveness. The instrumental themes and the lyrical delivery revert back to the semantics of Thomas Hardy, Tom Jones, Tristram Shandy as England press ganged its serfs and villains into ships to man an Empire. It is sung in Olde Englishe style but whilst the solo work aspires to recreate the shanty worlds of the Suffolk and Somerset past these have a more punk tinged delivery creating a greater forceful blast.
It is eons away from the current ribbons and bleats micro algae planets of mudderne kulcha. It also shifts way beyond the axis of nouveau industrial with its preoccupation with futuristic angst.
These are dark tunes played to small audiences in light filled caverns.
