UK noisy instrumental outfit 65daysofstatic have announced the long-awaited re-issue of their critically acclaimed 2005 album ‘One Time For All Time’ on vinyl for the first time.
Following the release of their widely acclaimed debut album ‘The Fall of Math’ in 2004, 65daysofstatic spent several months touring the UK, playing to packed venues and festival tents. They recorded three radio sessions for BBC Radio 1 – for the late John Peel, Zane Lowe and a live from Maida Vale Studios set for Huw Stephens.
‘One Time For All Time’ was written on and between those tours and captures the chaos of a scruffy band of noise apparatchiks thrust from obscure beginnings in bedrooms and by-the-hour rehearsal rooms into a peripatetic maelstrom of vans, plans and light speed all night motorway drifting. Furious drum’n’glitch beats collide with squalls of guitar noise, broken laptops signal for help across tranquil pools of piano. An attempt to sonically articulate the stuff no-one really has words for, willed into being by the boundless all-or-nothing energy of naive youth and thrown onto tape in the small hours, this is a record that assaults the listener, grasps at something just beyond the reach of the young 65’s limited musical skill and in the closing track ‘Radio Protector’, gifts a suitably uplifting epilogue to what is otherwise an abrasive and relentless forty-five minutes.
The band comment, ‘We have never worked with a record label as great as Monotreme Records and they never do vinyl half heartedly. It’s cool to finally have all that hyper-treble and scratchy confusion we recorded back in 2006 pressed onto heavy plastic to warm it up a bit. Plus this reissue gave us a chance to revisit our Radio Protector Polaroid project — a thousand 7 inch singles, each with a unique cover. We made a special booklet for this vinyl with images and titles for all 1000, finally bringing them together in the same place for the first time. Pretty happy with that.’
Described by Drowned in Sound as ‘the most vital, enthralling and unrelenting record of 2005’‘One Time For All Time’, will be released on the 18th November 2016 as a pressing of 1000 deluxe LPs on 180 g vinyl – 500 copies on black vinyl and 500 copies on cream vinyl with sepia splatter. All LPs will include a large format 12-page colour booklet containing the images and titles of all 1000 individual Polaroid photos taken by the band and used to create unique sleeves for the sold-out limited edition ‘Radio Protector 7” single” in 2006, plus a copy of the album CD and a colour-printed inner sleeve.
