REC AND RUIN EP – Quatermassive Action!

**30 copies only, going live on The Fog Signals website at 08:00 GMT on Friday 4th December, then gone forever. The VOLT FACE EP sold out in under five minutes, so don’t sleep on this one!**

Howlround end 2020 in typically noisy and abrasive style by flipping this accursed year a massive bird in the shape of the REC AND RUIN EP. Four tracks of primal ooze and sonic sludge, plus digital bonus content, all recorded during lockdown. 7″ lathe with laminated cover featuring exclusive ghostly artwork, each hand-cut and assembled by Ben Soundhog @Plastidisc, Deepest Wales.

Some of our fiercest material yet, all created using a wineglass, a microphone and four reel to reel tape machines. As ever, absolutely no digital FX or artificial reverb have been used in the making of this EP and no downstairs neighbours have been upset – I waited until they were out. Track 3 sounds uncannily like Tristam Cary’s original sound effects for Quatermass And The Pit, but I can assure you it’s pure sonic coincidence. It truly is astonishing the distances you can travel on a spool of tape and a sense of adventure! Here’s an early version of one of the tracks to further whet your appetite:
