The debut from Glasgow's Directing Hand, led by free-drummer Alex Neilson. Alex played drums for Jandek's first-ever live performance; and he has also recorded and collaborated with a whole host of folks such as Richard Youngs, Alasdair Roberts, Vibracthedral Orchestra, Ashtray Navigations, Black Forest/Black Sea, Lucky Luke and Mirror, not to mention his own superb band, Scatter. Alex created Directing Hand as his "solo" vehicle, but its no surprise that so many important underground musicians joined in, as well. Featured on this CD are current and former members of Charalambides, Scatter, Belle and Sebastian, One Ensemble of Daniel Padden and Scottish psych-folk darlings Lucky Luke. Following a few UK-only CDRs, this is the first proper Directing Hand CD (and the first world-wide release). Directing Hand is the must-own CD of the season - an impressive collection of musicians creating an entire universe with their hands and throats. This is the stuff.
