Carter, Nick - Abstracts and Extracts (Mega Blowout Sale)

A very much out of time album originally released in the UK in 1979, when something like this was incredibly out of fashion (or hadn’t become fashionable yet – take your pick!)
In the same world (but not the same sounding world) as Deux Filles and “Provisionally Entitled The Singing Fish”, although both of these came a couple of years later and don’t sound like this. But if you are old enough to remember 1979-1983 and know those albums, you’ll get my point.
If you like the sound of [barely] post punk experimentation, you’re going to love this quirky, forgotten, small treasure of musical weirdness.

“Nick Carter describes this remarkable album as "the culmination of a slightly obsessive idea I had about sound."
Built around heavily distorted piano backed with bass, drums, and touches of guitar and sitar, its six tracks are frequently dreamy and hypnotic (reflecting Carter's belief that "repetitive music radiates an unusual ethereal depth"), but can also be unnervingly intense.
Recorded in Bristol, England, in 1978-'79, it was pressed in a tiny run aimed at generating major label interest; when that failed to materialize, Carter left music behind.
This is its long-overdue first reissue, and comes with background notes and images.”
