Artist: GILBERT/G. LEWIS, B.C.
Title: 3R4
Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"In 1980, after three relentlessly creative albums, the members of Wire were at an impasse, unsure of how to push themselves any further as a four-piece rock band. While frontman Colin Newman spent the bands hiatus mining Wires knack for intelligent and contorted pop songs, guitarist Bruce Gilbert and bassist/vocalist Graham Lewis joined forces for a series of experimental projects (Dome, Cupol, etc.) where the primary motivating concept was studio as instrument. 3R4, the duos only LP under the B.C. Gilbert/G. Lewis moniker and the very second album to be released on 4AD, eschews melody and structure in favor of ambient-noise soundscapes, metallic textures, and tense moods. If the brief Barge Calm tracks appear like sonic exercises, the longer pieces (3. 4? and R) are true exorcisms, conjuring supernatural found-sounds with the patience and deliberation of (un)holy men. Play this record loud and try not to think that it is the soundtrack to a lost David Lynch film. This first-time vinyl reissue is recommended for fans of Faust, David Cunningham, and Thomas Leer & Robert Rentals The Bridge." - Superior Viaduct.

Artist: GILBERT/G. LEWIS, B.C.
Title: Ends With the Sea
Format: 7"
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Bruce Gilbert and Graham Lewis have always juggled darkness and light in their various collaborations (Dome, Cupol, etc.); Gilberts pointillist melodicism counterbalanced by Lewiss menacing bass and sardonic lyrics. While the duo explores cinematic soundscapes on their album 3R4, here they return to more song-based territory with icy vocals, detached guitar lines and even a faint industrial vibe. Ends With the Sea provides a vital glimpse into the creative forces that even a band as daring and inventive as Wire could not contain. This first-time vinyl reissue is recommended for fans of SPK, Chris Carter, and Einstürzende Neubauten." - Superior Viaduct.
