Boomkat Product Review:
Spaceheads are the trumpet and drums improvisational duo of Andy Diagram and Richard Harrison, the former being one of David Thomas' Two Pale Boys, and the latter a graduate of the Hot Air label and drummer with Manchester groups Homelife and Toolshed. For this album they've teamed up with sound artist Max Eastley (for a second time) to create a sprawling work of experimental jazz and obscure soundscapes. The resultant set of recordings make for a strange listening experience: 'The Dream That Murdered Sleep' is one of the closest brushes with conventional free jazz, the squealing rapid-fire trumpet linking up with some outlandish percussion workouts to great effect. Like much of the rest of the album, this piece seems to be haunted by strange room reverberations and almost imperceptible drones that hover statically over everything, like a coating of frost on the more recognisable instruments. A fascinating meeting of surreal improv strategies and electronic abstraction, A Very Long Way From Anywhere Else, is, as the title suggests, a pretty unique piece of work. Recommended.
