Description

The Advisory Circle - Other Channels

The Advisory Circle bring us more timely advice on issues such as domestic isolation, tranquilliser addiction and the nuclear threat. Sumptuous booklet art by Julian House and beautifully evocative liner notes by Ken Hollings complement what we feel to be the strongest Ghost Box release so far.

Light synthesizer melodies and moments of surreal humour float in a drift of pastoral melancholia and fuzzy music concrete. Fragments of public information broadcasting are filtered through the distorting lens of prescription tranquillisers. Malicious gossip becomes jumbled and confused with continuity announcements.

Reviews

"The Advisory Circle’s debut is the most fully realised expression of the Ghost Box label’s aesthetic to date. Its artists inhabit a half-remembered zone sure to resound with impressionable listeners of a certain age. Clean, cold sounds echo the electronic incidental music of 1970s public-information films and weird children’s television.

Beautifully assembled packaging, by the designer Julian House, suggests some long-abandoned government social experiment. Other Channels uses snatches of speech and fragments of banally beautiful melodies to conjure a vivid suburban nightmare of Mogadon coffee mornings, treacherous frozen ponds and imminent nuclear war that both chills and charms."

Ghost Box just keep getting better and better. On this, the label’s 10th release, Jon Brooks – AKA The Advisory Circle – heaps glorious tune upon glorious tune. Light synth melodies and fuzzy music fuse throughout to form a thing of rare beauty. Just buy it.
