‘Chapterhouse Retranslated by Global Communication - Blood Music: Pentamerous Metamorphosis’
Released: 2nd October 2020
|2xLP||£26.99||Pre-Order||Dispatched on or before Friday 2nd October 2020|
Reissue of the revolutionary 1993 full overhaul of the
‘Blood Music’ album by labelmates Chapterhouse.
Whilst retaining some elements of the shoegaze guitar
music of the original recording to use as building
blocks, Global Communication essentially crafted their
own album out of the results and the result is a lesser
known but equally fine-crafted companion to much-
loved ambient techno classic ‘76:14’. It’s also worth
bearing in mind that outside of dub reggae, it was
pretty much unheard of for an entire album to be
remixed. Issued on the group’s own Evolution label and
available for the first time in 22 years, it’s been fully
remastered from the original DAT tapes, with great
care taken to retain the full dynamics of the original
recordings. It is also accompanied by in-depth
sleevenotes by Ben Cardew and a beautifully updated
gatefold sleeve design by Mark Gowing.
Global Communication are the legendary duo of Tom
Middleton and Mark Pritchard. They began recording
in 1991 and in a short space of time released a huge
amount of music collectively and individually, in a
broad range of styles, including records under names
such as Link, E621, Reload, The Chameleon and Jedi
Knights but it’s the work they made together as Global
Communication that has proved to be the most
140gram double LP in heavy cardstock gatefold sleeve
with spot UV logo printed on the front and printed
inners with full sleevenotes.
