B.C. GILBERT / G. LEWIS have always juggled darkness and light in their various collaborations (DOME, CUPOL, etc.); Gilbert's pointillist melodicism counterbalanced by Lewis' menacing bass and sardonic lyrics. While the duo explores cinematic soundscapes on their album 3R4, here they return to more song-based territory with icy vocals, detached guitar lines and even a faint industrial vibe. Ends With The Sea provides a vital glimpse into the creative forces that even a band as daring and inventive as WIRE could not contain.
Originally released on 4AD in 1981. This first-time vinyl reissue is recommend for fans of SPK, Chris Carter and EINSTÜRZENDE NEUBAUTEN.
