Recorded over a cold winter's weekend in a dilapidated North London industrial district, Unnecessary Woe is the result of a desire to capture some of their live abandon in the form of a 'proper' record, with all engineering and mixing duties carried out within the group.
Improvising around skeletal structures, the players lock into a telepathic ebb and flow of hypnotic drums, tumbling electronic scree and modulated, obscured howls of rage. Six trajectories are bound together with bad vibes, bad whisky and the ringing ambiance of an old factory space.

I've had the track Western Horn on a playlist since this release came out - downloaded it from somewhere, possibly even legally - and finally getting to listen to the whole album was a real joy. Only problem is that at 35 minutes, this album is too bloody short! I think this is a wonderful collaboration that could have and should have delivered more material. Terrestrials feels like side one of at least a full album, if not a double. Ken Goodey
