"Steam / Cosmos"
The Electric Press
Veryverywrongindeed Recordings - VVWI028
Release Date: 20 Sep 2010

The Electric Press were a phenomenon on the peerless 20/20 Vision label for many years but sadly disbanded some time ago. Just prior to this they spent a day in the studio with Tim Sheridan and the session birthed something quite unusual. The mother was naturally in tears but the creature was put in a convent and hidden... until today.

"Steam" is the bastard child of those 3 absent fathers, containing all the tonking drive of The Press married to Sheridan's now trademark live piano and freaky keyboard work. Like much of VVWI's sound it has the funk, a monster bass but still manages to pause for a melodic moment of flower sniffing before it continues to rampage across Tokyo fighting Mothra.

"Cosmos" we are both tearful and proud to release. The very last recording by The Electric Press (no Sheridan tinkling on this one), by far the slowest tempo thing we have put out it is also what we feel is the most 'acid house'. A reminder of the days when Wevvers ruled supreme and not everything was 120 bpm.

These days the Press chaps (Wesley Gill & Tom Taylor) are at it stronger than ever. Tom with his 2pin Records label: http://www.myspace.com/2pinrecords and Wesley making his own all-new take on live music, married to a disturbingly successful career at the Poker table (fact!).
