Jetting in from up the Kingsland Road we have Dalston’s Temperatures, the improvised avant rock duo comprised of Peter Blundell (bass) and James Dunn (drums/synth). Temperatures’ sound (no ‘The’) is a guttural, dense and relentless unleashing of some intense unspecified emotion (is it anger, is it hate, is it love?), by turns hypnotically repetitious and wildly tangential.
“Mankind’s destiny is played out in primal terms on this exciting LP, a blistering recorded performance.” Ed Pinsent, Sound Projector / Resonance FM.
“It’s really this dark-hole of noise-playing. It’s actually really distinctive in a way amongst that genre, because there’s a lot of standardized tropes in the noise genre that people fall into– which I don’t mind, I like the idea that this is traditional way of playing in that world, but it’s always cool to hear something like this where you can’t really slot it into those things” – Thurston Moore, Sonic Youth (from OhNoTheyDidn’t.LiveJournal>com)
