2017 double-vinyl reissue of Bark Psychosis's Talk Talk-inspired post-rock monument.  

"The recent release of Jeanette Leech’s book Fearless: The Making Of Post-Rock (Jawbone Press) celebrates post-rock and its origins. Finding new inspiration, bands were beginning to experiment with techniques as the digital age took over.

"A case study in her new book, Bark Psychosis were one of the most innovative bands of their time and as legend has it, saw the first use of the term ‘post-rock’ by music critic Simon Reynolds.

"Following several singles and EPs, the avant-garde soundscapes built around drones and samples of 21-minute stand-out track ‘Scum’ arrived just two years before their seminal debut Hex (1994). Frustrated by the mainstream, ‘Scum’ was a huge statement that set them apart from the beginning.

"Bark Psychosis’ sound was born out of their improvisations at makeshift studio within St John’s Church in Stratford. Taking a year to complete Hex left the band on the brink of collapse and by the time of its release they had dissolved.

Hailed as a masterpiece, it’s mysterious, haunting, and breathtakingly visionary. Breaking down their songs and rebuilding them in the studio brought distinguishing ambient soundscapes and an atmospheric experimental sound. Newly remastered in 2017 from the original analog tapes at Metropolis Studios by Graham Sutton and Stuart Hawkes, and reissued officially for the first time." - Fire
