Never Let Go by The Dick Burrill's
Dogma of artistic constraints according to DB:
>A keyboard based grind album.
>Drum beats - either recreated from Discordance Axis albums or just straight recordings of jackhammers, recorded one piece at a time, like Martin Hannett did with Joy Division.
>Kurzweil (Badalamenti appropriate) and MIDI instruments only for drum and keyboard sounds.
>Film clips, a Dick Burrill’s staple, including Log Lady in conversation.
>Backmasking “voices from the underworld”, Bob as the devil/ One-Armed Man.
>Dick Burrill’s philosophy: channelled song/ channelled lyric.
>First take is best.
>Vocals recorded in one take over the telephone with live effects - stream of consciousness improv without having heard the music previously.
>One anomaly - a pop song.
>Take three liberties.
