  • Limited edition 7" lathe cut vinyl + download
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Heaven’s Lathe is honoured to release two new solo recordings from the musician, composer and author Stephen Thrower. A co-founder of the group Possession, he rose to prominence as a member of Coil, writing and recording with them between 1984 and 1992.

    Under the name Cyclobe, alongside fellow Coil member Ossian Brown, Thrower has released several albums of lush, psychedelic electro-acoustics. He also collaborates with David Knight in UnicaZürn: described by Dangerous Minds as ‘practitioners of a deep, brooding kosmiche’.

    He’s created film scores for Ben Wheatley’s thriller ‘Down Terrace’, Kristen Bjorn’s erotic fantasy ‘Trouser Bar’, and a selection of Peter De Rome’s pioneering short gay films. Meanwhile, his improvisatory work with the Amal Gamal Ensemble charts a different territory again.

    Extraordinarily, this exclusive new release marks Thrower’s first single as a solo artist.

    A: Psilo-Plutonian. With its jazzy drum pattern and cool ascending keyboard chords, ‘Psilo-Plutonian’ is unlike anything else Thrower has put his name to. The sense of urgency escalates, suggesting nothing so much as the opening scene of some strange psychotropic spy thriller. With its echoes of Lalo Schifrin, this is definitely a composer in soundtrack mode.

    B: Chasms Of The Night. A precipitous rolling piano leads us into a composition that soon folds in on itself, only to remerge like some lopsided out-take from ‘Another Green World’. Here, what sound like (but probably aren’t) a reversed lead guitar and bass clarinet are underpinned by prangs of synth, which suggest all is far from well.

£999.99? Not really. With this release we can't actually offer you the digital files only. But BC rules mean we have to put a price here. Sorry.
