Clive Henry - Hymns (Live)
"Recorded live at a show in Southampton, UK and described by Clive as “a heavy dose of sh-101 worship” Hymns is quite a few steps away from the usual crumbling HNW that Clive Henry is known for.
‘We gathered, invulnerable’ starts things off with a single point of wavering feedback, followed by ‘and then into the streets, to smash and destroy’ the slow layering of more frequencies and small melodic indications as the piece evolves.
‘We watched, quiet or cheering’ to me comes across like a gaggle of extraterrestrial beings trying to communicate through some demonic audio portal. The overlapping sonics eventually exiting leaving behind an arrangement of twinkling signals that shift to reveal a sonic picture of an exquisite star filled sky.
The mammoth end track ‘and we did nothing, and it began’ depicts a space odyssey of unimaginable terror, bringing an impactful end to an amazing release."
Recorded in July 2016, in Southampton.
