Nineteen Eighty Four
This is jon\'s fifth studio album. Loosely based upon the classic orwell novel transposed to the year 1984. Jon\'s work is considered to be some of the best released in this genre. The 1995 album \'augur\' being a noted example of pushing the forefront of electronica...regularly changing hands for 100 bucks a time for a new copy. Based on this alone, this is a wise investment if your serious about electronic music. The price reflects this. Artwork is by renowned London artist Simon Reuben White and features an original photomontage by him. Simon currently curates at the elevator and the whitechapel galleries in east London. This is a guerilla audio product, and features art and sentiments that are simply NOT going to fly on a 21st century major label. Jon has been recording music for film and t.v but has returned of late with a major recording campaign. Perhaps the only electronic artist to be played on national bbc radio 2 by both bob harris and john peel. Don\'t buy this if you want the same old tired formulas that dance and electronica presents us with these days. This LP is primarily a vocal led affair, but tracks like \'omnipresent\' show jon\'s trademark ambient treatments to full effect. Perhaps not the most widely known about of electronic artists, nevertheless highly regarded and sought after. It is highly likely that future presses of this LP will not feature the same artwork etc etc. Anyway, don\'t take our word for it. Accept no imitations. Accept no impostors. This is 1984.
