The Official Recoil Website



Long-time Recoil collaborator Paul Kendall has completed his new album, entitled ‘Family Value Pack’, due for mail order release via ant-zen on 12th September 2014. The album is available as a CD & MP3 download.


Composed & produced by Paul and containing 7 new tracks, this collection follows 2011’s ‘Angleterror’ where the emphasis was on the guitar. According to PK ‘Family Value Pack’ is more focused on the human voice, his own voice as well as samples of family members and a secret celebrity. Except for track one – ‘scuba dis dat‘ with its pushing technoid beats and horn-supplied art punk approach – this release offers collagistic, structurally unorthodox and abstract atmospheric sound spheres chimed with dark ambience – contemporary musique concrète orbiting between warmth and chill.


The new album will act as a precursor to an upcoming solo exhibition via ‘live’ performance. Says Paul: “The compositions on this album transport the artistic spirit of the British avant-garde heard in projects like Dome / Wire and very early Clock DVA towards the end of the seventies when a specific splinter group of the punk movement was exploring the length, width and depth of musical freedom / expression.”


The full background story – the intrigue, the denouements, the highs & lows, the cruel and the tender will be diffused / published on Paul Kendall’s official pages.
