John Cratchley Northern Spy Records is a seriously important imprint,releasing seriously important music and this sampler is a real treat!
I recommend that you check out The Necks 'Open' (I think they are the best working trio on the planet) and Rhys Chatham and the Chicago Underground Duo need your serious attention too.
In fact,the whole catalogue is just superb really...mind expanding music from artists who scorn boundaries and expand the musical horizon.
Just dig in!
I'll be working my way through it in the months to come...also,check out the Cunieform and Catalytic Sound BC catalogues too if you haven't already.
