Not much need to be said about Charles Hayward (THIS HEAT, CAMBERWELL NOW) one of the greatest experimentalists, a restless explorer of new ways of communication. His music is a sound document about life under urban/industrial rules, yet a meeting point of traditions coming from several directions in order to create free feeling & thinking liberating forms.This first solo LP (released just when Camberwell Now disbanded) blends post industrial, ambient, world, electronic, jazz, prog, noise elements, it is though a song orientated album,(bringing in mind Brian Eno, Peter Hammill, Robert Wyatt), quite melodic, with Charles lyrics & vocals on central position. RIO extensions, global thinking & ecological cares are present in many compositions. A folk sense echoes a cosmic melancholy, but this art is bathing in light, especially as Charles vision connects the dream for a modern collective soul with the continuity of a globeold earthy optimism.
