Another View: Limited Edition CD


Sorry Sold Out

Release Date: 11 June, 2021

Compilation album rounding up all of the tracks from Andy Bell’s three ‘Ever Decreasing Circles’ EPs, plus an acoustic version of ‘The Commune’ exclusive to this release. Ride guitarist and singer Andy Bell releases three new EPs and a compilation album between April and June this year. The ‘Ever Decreasing Circles’ series begins on April 9, with The Indica Gallery EP, a six-track 12” and digital release featuring five songs from Andy’s acclaimed debut solo album The View From Halfway Down reworked by electronic experimentalist Pye Corner Audio, along with a re-edit of one of the remixes by Andy himself, in his GLOK guise. It will be followed by the See My Friends EP (four-track 10” and digital) featuring two further Pye Corner Audio reworkings on May 14 and the All On You EP (four-track 7” and five-track digital) of acoustic radio session versions on June 11; Another View, a CD compiling all 15 tracks from the three EPs, will be out on the same day. “Each release in the series will be smaller in size than the last, so we start with a 12”, then a 10”, a 7” and CD,” says Andy of the concept, “so that was the reason for the name ‘Ever Decreasing Circles’, a figurative and fond nod to the ’80s Richard Briers sitcom. I like the idea that the EPs represent fainter and fainter echoes of The View From Halfway Down and, as such, can be visualised as water splashes reducing in size on a pond, much like the shots at the start of each episode of the sitcom! Pretentious, moi?” “Martin [Jenkins, aka Pye Corner Audio] has been top of my list of people to work with ever since a monumental night at the Social, late 2019. It was Sonic Cathedral’s 15th birthday party and Pye Corner Audio was headlining, with bdrmm and myself playing live sets. It was a bit of a legendary night and, before it was over, Martin and I had agreed we would work together on something, sometime. I wasn’t sure he’d remember the conversation, but luckily he did.”
