E.G. Oblique Graph – "Triptych" (Recloose Organisation LOOSE 002) 1982


Bryn Jones’s first foray onto vinyl, although I don’t think that Recloose Org is his own label,but everything else is definitely done by the great man.
One islam reference, De Gaulle, referring to French (mis)behaviour in Algeria.But apart from that, a healthy concept EP based on Francis Bacon’s studies of Velázquez’s Portrait of Pope Innocent X.
Although I don’t know if any of this series of paintings were actually a Triptych!
Musically, its more of the same E.G.Oblique Graph style, minimal manipulated synths, plenty of tapes and plenty of echo. Classic Industrial minimalism.

Track Listing:

A1
Black Cloth Behind De Gaulle’s Wax Head 5:17
A2
Triptych 6:43
B1
Study Of The Red Pope (Innocent X) 8:00
B2
Castro Regime 3:07

Recloose was basically Simon Crabtree of Bourbonese Qualk, hence the numerous BQ albums on the label. There was also "Sudden Departure", a compilation which I'm surprised hasn't turned up here...

We've got "Sudden Departure" if you like.
