Lewis, Edvard Graham – “All Under” – [Editions Mego]

lewis_all_under
Dormant for a decade, the erstwhile Wire bassist delivered twin
discs this year. On this, “All Under” the more exploratory
outing, and apparently with a cinematic connection. Things
commence with an outer space scanner sweep or sorts. Nice
flickering high frequencies, it’s followed by a longer deeper
dronier with some sci-fi oscillations as Lewis apparently
takes different spaceships out for test drives. “The Eel
Wheeled” delivers the piece d’resistance, electro-breath
and a high heel metronome walk into a spoken word scene from
some “Blade Runner” world. The libretto is included and well
worth reviewing, especially if you want to avoid falling
into the “fucking tank” with that damn eel. The story
comes with its own flashbacks, one per sentence. To close
“No Show Godot” might have its own 16mm projector wet gating
along for 7+ minutes before tribal drums and Lewis uttering
a currency chant for time travel terrorists and other lost
lovers? This 18 minute charmer then explodes into an epic
wall of sound, then dials back to the drums alone before
a denouement where the credits, if not heads, will roll.
Triumphant 4-track outing, and “All Over” is locked,
loaded and aimed at KFJC for next week.
