Fabrefactions: the processes of creating works of art. Also, the beautiful and strange new album by Bearcraft, the Bristol-based collective led by Essex-born musician/producer Dicky Moore.
Over ten tracks, Fabrefactions moves upriver along the Thames, from Margate, through Leigh-on-Sea and into the capital of England. That journey is mapped out in gorgeous organic electronics, overheard ghost stories and half-remembered urban myths. Here are tales of runaways, banshees, estuary witches, acid trips and seafront car-cruising, set to sounds that evoke bankside industry, underground dancehalls and the ambient push and pull of the shoreline.
Bearcraft is a collective led by Dicky Moore. Dicky is one quarter of Dream Themes, was guitarist for Frank Sidebottom’s Oh Blimey Big Band and plays for Scritti Politti.
Fabrefactions was written whilst staring out the window of a council flat in Dalston after a diagnosis of acute hearing loss; recorded in the corner of an artist’s studio in London Fields before being mixed next to the motorway in Bristol (over a period of ten years). Fabrefactions was recorded with Joe Reeves (Shit Disco, Age of Consent) and mixed by Ali Chant (Gruff Rhys, PJ Harvey, This Is The Kit); all music played and programmed by Dicky Moore. All vocals by Dicky and artist/musician Sam Sally.
Fabrefactions is the follow up to 2010’s Yestreen:
“So many hooks that you instantly stop everything you are doing and prepare for the onslaught of brilliant electro” The 405
“Yestreen is an escapism album. You may find yourself captured and held in this sorcerer's fortress before you even know it.” Bearded
“Infinity catchy… Cure-like… a fully realised and strangely satisfying pop record. Impressive.” The Digital Fix
