Tudor Acid – Imaginacoh

New from Tudor Acid, Imaginacoh sounds rather marvellously like music from a 70s children’s TV show mixed with a bit of Orbital-esque acid.

No doubt there is a proper review to be written of this lovely track. But that person’s not going to be me. I’m too busy smiling and skipping giddily round my kitchen. You carry on.

Blurb: Tudor Acid (Richard Wigglesworth) was born in the year that Kraftwerk’s ‘Autobahn’ was released. He went to school just round the corner from Chenies manor, Henry VIII’s country residence which was rumoured to be haunted by Anne Boleyn’s ghost. Home was a stone’s throw from the newly constructed M25 and when local newspapers started printing lurid stories about drug-addled youngsters dancing to mind-bending music it was clear that they were frankly more terrified by the music itself than anything else round it. This fact itself provided impetus for Richard to make tracks on cheap synthesizers and drum machines after school. Going on to study at Sheffield – a city on the move with a steel techno pulse, Wigglesworth stayed on, ostensibly to do a PhD in Quantum Mechanics but realistically because it was essential to carry on going to electronic music nights for inspiration. This interest in sound shaping led to gigs in London at the turn of the millennium. A highly limited 7″ ‘Time Is A Chasm’ followed. Released under the name, Hysteresis, it was played by John Peel (at the correct speed) in November 2002. Settling in Bristol, which is a city under a variety of grooves, Tudor Acid was gradually brought to life. Initially taking a step back to develop music which worked on the dancefloor, gigs at the legendary acid night, I Love Acid followed. These nascent Tudor Acid sets that involved live 303 and 909 drum machines, drew the attention of Keith Tenniswood (Radioactive Man) and an ecstatic crowd reaction. Tudor Acid then went on to perform a career-defining gig at Lo Motion in January 2008. In recent times, the Tudor Acid sound has been widened to incorporate the sound-shaping and tricks with time that were picked up in Sheffield and these have only served to heighten the audience appreciation. As well as singles and EPs, Tudor Acid has also released the albums, ‘Merri Portland’ (2010) and ‘Chronial’ (2015).
