about

This is the first proper Skin Vehicles album, featuring 12 tracks that have been created over 2019 plus a bonus track available only here on Bandcamp!

David Ian Bickley Alchemy Electronic Arts / Stormtree Records

My points of reference here would be D.A.F. and Eskmo — the raw simplicity of the former mixed with the off-kilter approaching trip-speed warping of the latter. But that is just at a glance, what really struck me were the passages of acid drenched sequencing (and not in an obvious hackneyed way) that would suddenly and almost imperceptibly dissolve, nay morph into an Eno-esque passage of transcendental beauty.

For a man such as me, who likes his electronica subtly dense (in an atmospheric sense), this LP does seems somewhat minimal, with a similar sound that spans all the work — but this in itself becomes a hook, rather like looking at an exhibition of works in pencil — one has the space, and the time, to study the forms at leisure, which when listened to in entirety are very beautiful — fine art in sound.

Track Name: First they came for-7days till the end of the world
First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist

Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist

Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist

Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew

Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me
