dome - 1-4+5

**Deluxe hardcase boxset includes 5 x re-mastered LPs, plus liner notes, reproduction posters, previously unseen photos, a download coupon redeemable from the label, and a matchbox** '1-4+5' collects the treasured studio experiments of Bruce Gilbert and Graham Lewis in the years after the initial burst of their Wire energies expended in 1980. Dome was their new headspace and with the assistance of engineer Eric Radcliffe and his Blackwing Studio they created a string of innovative records which experimented with and challenged the studio's capabilities. The results 1980-81 are documented here on Dome 1-4, which all appear on vinyl for the first time in over 30 years, while their later experiments, dating to 1989 and 1999 make up Dome 5 and appear on vinyl for the first time. The first four LPs comprise one of the most intriguing and esoteric bodies of work from this period, combining the artschool sensibilities of Gilbert - who was in his mid '30s by this point - with a post-punk awareness shared by Lewis, all in a stripped-down but suitably equipped studio facility, itself manned by a uniquely inquisitive mind. Essentially these were the perfect conditions to gestate something which could exist far beyond the mainstream and the duo would create a starkly experimental wealth of work refreshingly short on cliche yet imbued with a timeless quality. The bountiful highlights spread across all the discs are simply too numerous to mention, but we'll we'll have a pop. You've got to love the way Dome 1 abruptly jerks in mid-sentence on 'Cancel Your Order', but the highlight for us must be Angela Conway of A.C. Marias looming contribution to 'Cruel When Complete', or the intently, inwardly focused drones of 'Ampnoise'. On 'Dome 2' we find deeply haunting ambient drifts such as 'The Red Tent I' and 'Keep It' sandwiched against the primal avant-rock of 'Breathsteps', while the incredible 'Dome 3' is split between jagged rhythms and (almost) dancefloor-friendly grooves like 'Ba-Dr' and 'D-D-Bo' both nodding to the influence of Can, beside the bleakly sublime 'Danse'. On 'Dome 4' it's undoubtedly the 18 minute incantation 'To Speak', a slow, side long fever dream of arcane folk violin, gloominous drones and ritual rhythm. Needless to say, it's all left us reeling, shocked at its prescience and genuinely stunned by the sheer SOUNDS - subjected to floating-point re-master by Russell Haswell and cut to vinyl by Rashad at D&M. Highest recommendations.
