The Great Electric

The Great Electric

    The Great Electric, an Indie/kraut supergroup, was formed in the winter of 2012 by Malcolm Doherty (Guitars, FX), Rob Hyde (Drums), Darren Hayman (Synth), and Pete Gofton (Bass/Production), and released their debut EP on the ever exceptional Static Caravan label back in 2014. Alumni of bands as diverse as Hefner, Kenickie, GoKart Mozart & Mum and Dad, the band was united by a love of the classic German electronic and progressive acts of the 1970s coupled with the pop music sensibilities, hooks and production of 90s bands such as Stereolab, Quickspace and Electric Sound of Joy. Encarta - Updated early 90s post rock with added quiet storm sax and Material Girl Music & Colour - If latter day Brian Jonestown had a vocoder rather than a nutcase up front. Some tracks references : Night Music - Beach Boys “Love You” synths, American Analogue Set’s vibraphone. Features the voice of Sam Carelse. Mope - Riders On The Storm rudely segued by Blue Cheer. Top of The Tower - Originally called ‘Bruton Music’. A stab at library synth rock. Mount Nod - Harold Grosskopf, Camel and Steve Reich trade cigarettes. Fata Morgana - Cavern Of Anti Matter in two minutes. All These Worlds Are Yours - A final peek behind the curtain. Unlike the rest of the tracks, no editing of the final take, everything is played as is. A soundtrack to 2018 as the world falls into the sun

    Peach was written, played, recorded, produced and mixed by Emma Winston - she did the sleeve art too! Peach's narratives are driven by the feminine, combining Emma's reminiscences and stories with those of the (extra) ordinary women who inspire her. Emma describes Peach as being “an album about affirming the ordinary and vital, about the everyday things that provide comfort to you in difficult times, and about finding your own way to push back against the expectations that constrain you. It's about moments of contact between people, especially between women, and above all about celebrating the small moments that make up a life.” After self-releasing an original Christmas song, ‘City Bells’ as a digital download in December 2015, Emma put out a 7″ single, ‘Moon Maps’/’Hush Me’, on Where It’s At Is Where You Are, followed by a cassette EP, Staying Still, and a USB drive loaded with 8-bit remixes, Home. She has played numerous shows and festivals (including indietracks, Wales Goes POP! and the DIY Popfest), and is as comfortable in folk basement as a DIY space or Islington’s Union Chapel “Like a computer dreaming of a sunrise, Princess Peach from Mario re-imagined as a kick-arse, feminist superhero, or a pixelated Joanna Newsom. This is electronic music, yes, but at its core is humanity.”
