The Time & Space Machine Album Launch Mix. Launch at The Camp, City Road, London 16th April 2010 – Free Entry.
Richard Norris, one half of acclaimed psych-plunderers Beyond the Wizard's Sleeve, releases his first full-length solo album as The Time and Space Machine.
There have been four official The Time and Space Machine releases to date, including the mini-lps 'volume one' (2008) and 'volume two' (2009). As you may have gathered from the name, this project is an outlet for Norris's most flightily cosmic tendencies, anchored with rhythms derived from disco, Krautrock and slo-mo Balearica. "this is the first time I've made an album pretty much on my own," says Norris of the new, self-titled record, released by Tirk. "apart from two days laying down drums with ace beatnik drum-lord Wildcat Will and a couple of vocal sessions, this record was pieced together solo over many months in a room beneath a castle in Lewes, eussex, England. it's a different dynamic making a record on your own, and allowed the record to grow in its own particular way. after years collecting, releasing, writing and thinking about psychedelic music, I've finally put my formative influences onto a set of tunes”.
This is a taste of what you can expect on the 16th of April – arrive early to see the psychedelic film ‘More’ by Pink Floyd.
