Colin Potter is a sound engineer and musician currently based in London. He has worked within the fields of electronic and experimental music for over 35 years, collaborating with the likes of Current 93, The Hafler Trio, Organum, Andrew Chalk, and most notably as a key part of Nurse With Wound alongside Steven Stapleton. He started the esteemed ICR (Integrated Circuit Recordings) label in 1981 releasing a clutch of wonderful home recordings of his own, over half a dozen small run cassette only releases. ‘The Where House?’ was recorded in 1981 at IC Studio, a converted wash house in Sutton on the Forest in North Yorkshire. The album was self-released on cassette that same year via ICR. This expanded double LP edition features all 13 tracks from the original tape on vinyl for the first time plus 4 bonus tracks. ‘The Where House?’ is a prime example of early UK post-punk/industrial electronic music. “Combining dub, electro, and krautrock rhythms with psychedelic, kosmische noise in multiple mutations ranging from almost pop-wise songcraft to horizon-scanning motorik flights,” says Boomkat. Most of the damage was done by Colin using guitars, synths, sequencers, drum machines, percussion, and modified toy keyboards with fairly primitive 4-track recording equipment. He was assisted on some of the tracks by Stephan Jadd-Parry (guitar, percussions), Jon Caffery (guitar, bass, e-bow, percussion) and Nick Jackson (synth). All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The record is sleeved in a replica of the original cassette artwork by Jonathan Coleclough. Every copy includes a double sided postcard insert with notes from Colin.

19,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
After working for 20 years on this album, Colin Potter finally releases 'The Abominable Slowman', an LP that dives into many different codes (soundtrack, experimental, ambient, electronic psychedelia, contemporary, drone...), but among all is characterized by the surprise of the unexpected. Beautifully disturbing, it could be the perfect soundtrack for a David Lynch movie. The LP is presented in a letterpress-printed grey cardboard cover with a die cut.

2LP | 2017 | UK | Original (Deep Distance)

Release:2017 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Next up on Deep Distance (following the sold-out-in-a-day Sula Bassana LP) is a fabulous newly expanded -first time on vinyl- double LP set of Colin Potter’s seminal 1980 cassette only release “The Ghost Office”.The label is gradually working through Colin’s revered back catalogue of cassette only releases, with previous titles “The Scythe” and “Two Nights” selling out instantly. His run of half of a dozen home recorded, DIY / minimal synth cassettes between 1980 and 1982 is rightly granted legendary status, influencing a slew of home produced DIY experimental electronic artists and all attaining high collectors’ prices online for original copies. So these LP sets filled out with all manner of unreleased cuts, demos and excluded tracks truly are a treat.“The Ghost Office“, was his first full release. It was recorded on 4 track tape at the very first location of IC Studio, in the small village of Sutton-on-the-Forest, north of York. In Colin’s own words: “The cassette initially appeared on the Mirage label and this release has been remastered and edited to include all but one of the tracks, the missing piece being removed in the interests of health and safety. In addition there are extra tracks that appeared on compilations or taken from the vaults.”Nowadays Colin is a longterm member of Nurse With Wound and has worked with Current 93, Ora, Organum and many others; and has run the esteemed ICR label for over 35 years now. The interest in all of Colin’s work remains incredibly high and this welcome vinyl reissue is a must for longterm fans or newcomers. This double LP, with artwork by Jonathan Coleclough (who did the original layout, all those years ago) is an edition of 400 copies and is expected to sell out quick….
