The first thing we heard from Sir Robert Orange Peel was musical accompaniment to Mark E Smith reading out the classified football scores. Of course we were listening.
Now comes a debut release on the ever-interesting Metal Postcards label. The 6-track EP/mini-album is the unimaginatively-titled Sir Robert Orange Peel volume 1, but that’s perhaps because all the mental effort has gone into creating the sound. We feature Deep Water here, a track that starts a bit like Giorgio Moroder, but underpinned by a ramble about playing gigs in Somerset and how kebab shops in London stay open beyond half past ten.
Utterly unique and quite compelling.
