Next up on Deep Distance following the quick fire sell out of the recent Karen Novotny X and Samantha Glass releases, comes what some might term something of an underground classic. The first in a series of vinyl reissues to Colin Potter’s revered body of home recorded, cassette only releases between 1980 and 1982, presented by Deep Distance and Sacred Summits over the coming months.
Colin has worked within the fields of electronic and experimental music for over 30 years, collaborating with the likes of Current 93, Ora, Organum, Andrew Chalk and most notably as a key part to Nurse With Wound alongside Steven Stapleton. He started the esteemed ICR (Integrated Circuit Recordings) label in 1981 releasing the incredibly rare minimal synth comp “We Couldn’t Agree on a Title” LP before releasing a clutch of wonderful home recordings of his own over half a dozen small run cassette only releases.
The vinyl reissue project kicks off here with the incredible “Two Nights”. Recorded as the title would hint at, over 2 evenings at home in Sutton-On-The-Forest, North Yorkshire. Two epic side long pieces recorded as a first time, live experiment, albeit in the studio, which as Colin describes in the sleeve notes, consisted of; “some synths, a sequencer, a drum machine and some basic effects then, with a vague plan in mind, I picked up a guitar and pressed 'record'. I did this on 2 consecutive nights (hence the clever title) and what you hear is exactly what happened, no editing, which explains the bum notes here and there”.
Bum notes or not, the results sound remarkably fresh and relevant today. A fabulous album finally seeing a vinyl release after 30 odd years. Packaged with the usual Deep Distance / Great Pop Supplement eye for detail, in this case a diecut sleeve revealing a half red / half green LP beneath! Looks just stunning….
2014 sees ace releases from Umberto, Jonas Reinhardt, Eat Lights Become Lights and more from Colin Potter of course, amongst others, following an entirely sold out back catalogue featuring the likes of JD Emmanuel and Expo 70. This one’s a beauty and ready 2nd week of December. Expected to sell out quick so get on it!
