INTERNATIONAL PEOPLES GANG
ARTIST / BAND: INTERNATIONAL PEOPLES GANG
SONG (MP3): THIS ONE
ALBUM: Action Painting
FILE UNDER: Psychedelic / Experimental / Electronica
INFO: Synaesthesia - the mixing of the senses. Tasting textures, seeing sound. Normally the preserve of a select few or the result of a date with LSD or psychedelic mushrooms, but now available to everyone courtesy of the International Peoples Gang and their new album, Action Painting. Taking Jackson Pollock's approach to art into their own medium, Nottingham's Martyn Watson and Ric Peet use concepts of sound as their material, throwing them at blank spaces and watching abstract images and audio-visual beauty take shape. The result combines warm, organic dub soudscapes with classical stylings, elements of folk with fuzzed guitars, manipulation of language with electronic experimentation. This anything goes approach fits with the original concept behind the group.
