Locean - Traine

by Tesla Tapes

Traine 27:59


Locean are a Manchester based band featuring an all star cast of the cities trouble makers and a new breed of musicians and artist that are livening up shows throughout the UK, the line up includes sometime Gnod collaborator Neil Francis and Manchester Queenbee Louise Woodcock.
Recorded at the legendary Star and Garter venue in MCR by John Tatlock , I believe this track was more of an afterthought after a productive few days in the studio...and what a beautiful afterthought it is. When TT first heard this it conjured up early early days Sonic Youth, Bongwater , Josey Jones and Bardo Pond , all in one big lush, immersive black hole of sound.Lauren Bolgers poetry paints pictures of childhood memories, first loves and dream sequence memories moved along by tape pops And whirs from Francis while the rest of the band bliss out and scrape and scratch until all members rise up in a hazy state of euphoria. To me this sounds like a band absolutely comfortable and in a happy place when jamming and having seen them live I can say that it is most certainly the case. TT is very proud to document this'afterthought' and wait with baited breath for the full release of their recent recordings with Tatlock.
Here's a video for a track from the same sessions to wet your whistle
