Ο “Διάβολος πίσω από τις λεπτομέρειες” της ηχογράφησης του ντεμπούτου των A.R. Kane [1988] αφορά στο ότι, παραγωγός ενός άλμπουμ προαναγγελτικού ιδιωμάτων της επόμενης δεκαετίας όπως το shoegaze, το post rock και το trip hop, είναι ο Ray Schulman, πρώην μέλος των ”εντελώς παρωχημένων” ηρώων του ‘70s progressive, Gentle Giant – μπασίστας, κιθαρίστας, βιολιστής, τρομπετίστας, κιμπορντίστας, ντράμερ [μεταξύ άλλων…] και από τους βασικούς συνθέτες της μπάντας.
Ακούμε ένα κομμάτι από το σαγηνευτικό “69” του βρετανικού ντουέτου A.R. Kane, μια ακόμα πολύτιμη συνεισφορά – πρόταση του stcigar.

The Devil is in the details. As for A.R. Kane’s debut [1988] this refers to the producer. An album which foreshadows next decade’s idioms such as shoegaze, post rock and trip hop, was produced by Ray Schulman, former member of “totally outdated” ’70s progressive heroes, Gentle Giant – bassist, guitarist, violinist, trumpeter, guitarist, drummer [among others…] and one of the main composers of the band.
We hear a piece from the seductive “69” by the British duet A.R. Kane, another valuable contribution – proposal by stcigar.


❝ In the big rain
In the big rain
before we sleep, child
Before we sleep, child
let your arms down, cover my head
Before the big rain comes
we go to sleep forever
There, there he comes, the beginning, child
mother, cover my chest with your pretty breast
You said we’re gonna live together
Sleep forever
before the big rain comes
this is not the end ❞
