‘The Lane’, available digitally at all major outlets, brings together the vocal talents of Vic Godard (Subway Sect) and Davy Henderson (Fire Engines) and is taste of what to expect from Port Sulphur’s eagerly awaited debut album ‘Paranoic Critical’ which is due to arrive in the Summer.
The idea for the album was conceived when Douglas MacIntyre was going through some old music hard drives he had recorded and since forgotten. Listening again, he found that they contained some sparks of inspiration and these segments became the start-point to begin working under the Port Sulphur moniker. Taking a similar approach to the Luke Rhinehart novel The Dice Man, MacIntyre’s recording decisions were sometimes decided by a roll of the dice, not a million miles away from Brian Eno’s collaborative works in the 1970’s.
Somehow along the line, the songs were further developed with the help of various musical collaborators and the result is a truly innovative collection of songs.
