"Though the era of punk was widely regarded as a time of extremes, legendary group Wire and guitarist BC Gilbert provided the most problematic, visionary and ironic response to the music scene of the mid-70s. The angular minimalism of their sound, the abstract, deadpan lyrics and a penchant for confrontation betrayed the art school origins and made Wire an idiosyncratic triumph. With bravery, integrity, absolute courage and energy -- and more ideas and concepts than any other musician of his era -- Gilbert continues to forge ahead. In his post-Wire work, he has utilized a variety of modernist tools and explored a vast range of experimental music, from electronic noise to ambient drones. Table of the Elements is now pleased to present the contemporaneous CD, Ordier . Recorded for the label in 1996 but subsequently believed lost, Ordier lets loose a wild swarm of electronics. As Gilbert writes: Im taking a very, very minimalist approach and really getting inside some of the sounds and chasing them to destruction. Its done mostly with effects, guitar pedals pushed to the absolute limit. Beautifully packaged in a custom-designed wood case, and featuring photographs by prominent photographer Bettina Herzner." - Table Of The Elements.
