B.C.GILBERT / G.LEWIS

3R4

SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Format: LP
Cata No: SV063
Barcode: 857176003638
In 1980, after three relentlessly creative albums, the members of Wire
were at an impasse, unsure of how to push themselves any further as a
four-piece rock band. While frontman Colin Newman spent the band’s
hiatus mining Wire’s knack for intelligent and contorted pop songs,
guitarist Bruce Gilbert and bassist / vocalist Graham Lewis joined
forces for a series of experimental projects (Dome, Cupol, etc.)
where the primary motivating concept was “studio as instrument.”
3R4, the duo’s only LP under the B.C. Gilbert & G. Lewis moniker
and the very second album to be released on 4AD, eschews melody
and structure in favor of ambient-noise soundscapes, metallic
textures and tense moods. If the brief “Barge Calm” tracks appear
like sonic exercises, the longer pieces (“3. 4…” and “R”) are true exorcisms,
conjuring supernatural found-sounds with the patience and
deliberation of (un)holy men. Play this record loud and try not to think
that it is the soundtrack to a lost David Lynch film.
This first-time vinyl reissue is recommended for fans of Faust,
David Cunningham, and Thomas Leer & Robert Rental’s The Bridge.
