MINIATURES 2020 - 124 ASSORTED ARTISTS
- an anniversary tribute to Morgan Fisher’s 1980 classic. (dbl CD, boxette, fat booklet) [£20] 62RC1/2- Special ReR Edition. Expected in early January.
Third in a noble series: first was Morgan Fisher’s classic 1980 release, then an expanded second volume at the millennium - and now we have this third, even more expanded homage. The idea is simplicity itself: invite a selected body of artists to make a piece one minute long and then group them together in through-listening blocks. There are 124 contributors here, some well-thumbed (The Residents, Fred Frith, Stewart Lee, Billy Bragg, David Thomas, John Otway, Stevie Ray Moore, Peter Blegvad, Henry Kaiser, Attila the Stockbroker, Terry Riley, Half Japanese, Tom Robinson, Bob Drake, Alternative TV, The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, &c. and many others lesser known or as well known but in other musical circles - including members of Van der Graaf Generator, Curved Air, Zoviet France, Stomu Yamashta’s Red Buddha Theatre, Soft Machine, Fairport Convention, The Blockheads,The Stranglers, John’s Children, Alternative TV, Caravan, The Damned, Global Village Trucking Company, King Crimson, Adam and the Ants and The Monochrome Set. It’s a snapshot, a sampler, a box of variety and delights - and a window on the state of play: in all, a useful and worthwhile undertaking. 2 CDs in a slipcase with a thick book.
This special enhanced and limited edition – which is available only directly from us and for a limited time - includes a free copy of Morgan Fisher’s original, classic 1980 time-capsule release.
