This will come as a suprise to literally no-one, but there is an amazing amount of music transmitting through the Bristolian Hub. I’ve recently highlighted some Bokeh Versions releases, and encourage you to dive in to their catalogue if those are your thing. Now it’s time for the Avon Terror Corps. What a fantastic name.
Imagine, if you will, Alison Cotton, Abronia and Haress sharing a room and passing the musical parcel to each other for a spell as well as having moments of all joining in a glorious and harmonious cacophany. That might just about pass as a sign-post pointing the way to what you might expect to hear on The Black Hours.
The record is a reference to a medieval manuscript called ‘The Liturgy of the Hours, or the Office of the Dead.’ I find it interesting that the paragraph where this info is related also draws attention to the parralels between prayer and music creation / crafting. Although I haven’t made the explicit connection myself, I’ve philosophically been down this way for a number of years.
