beneath fire & smoke The Iceberg Waltz (hand numbered 10", £7.95)label: Battered Ornaments
The second release from Voice Of The Seven Woods collaborator and master of all trades but jack of none Pete Headley’s Beneath Fire & Smoke project. Written, recorded and produced by Pete somewhere between South East London and his parents’ home in the Welsh countryside, Beneath Fire & Smoke is the amalgamation of a classical training, a mammoth record collection and boundless enthusiasm. Hypnotically wonky, this EP is a window into one of the most varied and experimental musical scrapbooks you are likely to hear. Infused with krautrock sensibilities, aching classical flourishes and a healthy dose of skewed electronica, it is difficult to pigeonhole this record into any contemporary mainstream genre. Coupled with an ‘organic’ live set that veers from fully blown band backing to a one-man-beat-heavy electronic headfuck or simply layer-upon-layer of repetitive violin, Pete has produced some original and alluring music and earned himself a small but cult following.
