Quietly and without fuss, Andrew Paine has established himself as one of the UK underground’s most progressive thinkers and most diverse operators, his modes ranging from solo voice, through layered howling guitars, gentle piano interludes, oblique electronics and wherever he likes in between.
He initially broke cover collaborating with Richard Youngs in their progressive rock group project Ilk. Following their second album “Canticle” (VHF, 2005), he became particularly prolific, releasing many collaborative titles both with Youngs and with fellow Glasgow resident Caroline McKenzie as well as several solo titles.
‘Sky Movers Must Fight On’ is his first release for Glass Redux. Its short-sharp futuristic bursts capture Paine monologuing to the electronic horizon. Dada with beats. Mixed by Reuben Bough. Artwork by Steve Krakow (aka Plastic Crimewave).
