The Carbon Manual is a Bristol-based Krautrock'n'roll trio combining the talents of Iain Weir (guitars, machines and music), Clifford Gee (bass and music) and Jeremy Gluck (words and voice) to create a soul-piercing sound. Formed after a chance meeting between Weir, Gee and Gluck when the latter Barracudas singer had
been performing solo, The Carbon Manual had its genesis in an informal intention to create one song. The instant and innovative nature of the work produced led to début album “When I Am Memory” combining intense spoken word with organic rock mantra into an unusual and penetrating field of melody and ambience.
Featuring Jeremy Gluck, whose career with The Barracudas has created a legend that has since spawned critically-acclaimed solo work (notably the legendary cult album on Flicknife with Nikki Sudden and Rowland S Howard, ‘I Knew Buffalo Bill’) - and the core duo Weir and Gee, accomplished journeymen of the garage-psych scene, The Carbon Manual is no ordinary proposition, with exceptional words wed to hypnotic barrages of music and unpredictable beats that evoke everything from Leonard Cohen to Suicide and Slint.
The Carbon Manual have taken their touchy-feely soundscape live and played to aplomb and some amazement.
