#001 aspidistrafly – No Chance of Reconciliation (live)

When did aspidistrafly become one word? Or rather, when did a s p i d i s t r a f l y become thirteen letters, even-tempered, stark and disparate? I’m not entirely sure. Back at the Tesseract gig held at the Substation in 2003, they were still Aspidistra Fly– but the spaces were always there from the start, the eloquent pauses between strums, ethereal haze of vocals wafting between audio drags. On this rendition of “No Chance of Reconciliation”, April and Ricks removed the song’s hypnotically scattered beats (as heard on their notoriously impossible-to-find first EP) to create the prettiest funeral dirge I’d ever heard. It was their debut gig and I hadn’t realised it then, but right from the start, a s p i d i s t r a f l y were ghosts, and their song would haunt me through time, chase me through the gaps between night and morning, prodding bleakness, sad reminders.

a paean to bootlegging,
to memory,
to ubiety,
and to the Unity

cd reviews

i'm always looking forwards as well as backwards, so i'm opening up the site for cd reviews of new music

if you're a band in singapore, malaysia or southeast asia with an album or ep out and would like your music savagely torn apart and skewered on a fat stick, drop me an email with UNITY SONG in the subject line at:
@.

reviews will be done the UNITY SONG way: i will choose one song from your release to feature and provide an audio stream. cheers
