Award winning graphic novelist Warren Ellis was kind enough to, on his own accord, write an update on his website about Thirsting Quench and the Captains of Industry’s (a group on Knee-Jerk editor/cofounder C. James Bye’s small recording label, Stir Up Your Grey Matter) new ep, Nema Reve. Check out what he had to say:
“I’m listening to the first track right now. It starts like an outtake from ‘Fur Immer’ (I’ve been listening to NEU! all afternoon, which made for a weird moment when I had to check if I was streaming audio or still in iTunes). And then it stops. And then they sort of go through a time-travel portal and put their other foot directly into 90s postrock while still strumming the motorik. At which point, yes, it’s total comfort food for old rockist tendencies, but by the time they start digging power chords out of their guitars with rusty screwdrivers, I’m off with the fairies. Thirsting Quench and the Captains of Industry, we salute you.“
What an amazingly nice (not to mention crazy talented) guy.
