THE HISTORY OF AVIATION by Paul Carr
Cassette tape with full colour printed artwork, edition of 100, 2012.
'Spoken word, improvised melodica, drum and percussion from the Yamaha PSR-74, and structured sound and music parts created from chaotic home made recordings with guitar, a tambourine, feedback and households objects. Subjects include reversible jackets, a fictional day in the life of Bruce McLean, an ode to Ian Breakwell, and food types in the title track, The History Of Aviation.'
'Paul Carr .. proves himself to be a dab hand at casual DIY madness . . The vocals are usually near-spoken (with one track being very Barrett-esque) . . a vibe that conjures up fond memories of the first known cassette era'
Byron Coley, The Wire Magazine
