Cavern Of Anti-Matter are the new band from Stereolab mainman Tim Gane, now Berlin-based and collaborating with original Stereolab drummer Joe Dilworth, and synth wizard Holger Zapf.
This is their first album proper following limited edition vinyl releases on Grautag, Deep Distance, Peripheral Conserve and Associated Electronic Recordings.
Tim Gane is the leader of Stereolab (a band beloved by everyone from Pharrell Williams to Blur). He started his musical career as a purveyor of harsh noise in the early 1980s under the alias Unkommuniti releasing self-financed cassettes on Black Dwarf Wreckordings (recently anthologised by Vinyl On Demand). Tim was a key member of McCarthy from 1985-1990. In 2007 he composed his first film soundtrack, La Vie D’Artiste, alongside longtime musical collaborator Sean O’Hagan (The High Llamas), and has recently contributed keyboards to the latest Deerhunter album, Fading Frontier.
Features contributions from Bradford Cox (Deerhunter), Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3) & Jan St. Werner (Mouse On Mars).
“Cavern Of Anti-Matter are spectrum addicts, setting up tiny rhythmic cells and expanding on them in certain ways, splitting the melody and stretching out. The melodic movement is much slower due to the lack of words. At the moment, the Cavern sound is more what I want to do.” – Tim Gane
“Repaints the neon-lit underpasses of Kraftwerk and Neu!, while irregular, perverted, wavering synths recalls and elaborates on DAF and forgotten 80s electropop” – The Guardian
Support – VENN
Living in both London and Berlin, VENN encompass an impressive mix of musical influences – from the more industrial-leaning sounds of early 70s West Germany, up to the bourgeoning post-punk influenced scene of early-millennial Atlanta.
