"recorded in london during the summer riots of 2011"
jimmy billingham, liner notes to „crepuscular raze“:
"the [2011 summer] riots have generated significant ongoing debate among political, social and academic figures about the causes and context in which they happened."
wikipedia, „2011 england riots“
jimmy billingham's last release under his „venn rain“ moniker adds a cultural nuance to this ongoing debate. have the suspicion that he felt like being in the eye of the storm recording his „crepuscular raze“. his trademark foggy drones with guitar feedback and fx and stuff makes you feel like lost in a capsule staggering into the outer realms of your inner space. very far out but hey, it feels so good! and keep in mind, the „real“ world around you is and will always be just plain crazy.
buy this tape and keep sane. full stop.'
