ARC073: Gyratory System - Pamplona
Dr Andrew Blick, the effects trumpet player, producer and driving force behind Gyratory System and “The Process”, the recording and production technique he created returns with a brand new Single Pamplona on 14 June 2010, designed to get you running with the bulls this summer.
The beat-heavy Pamplona retains the avant dancefloor sensibility of Blick’s previous releases (album ‘The Sound-Board Breathes” and EP “Yowser Yowser Yowser”) yet takes in playful new influences from 1940s Bebop phrasing and 1960s girl groups. Backed with Colonel - a track inspired by a French alcoholic pudding - this duo of tracks is a natural progression from the earlier Gyratory System material in advance of their new album due early 2011.

Gyratory System gradually emerged from a succession of improvisational trumpet projects and collaborations that led the late John Peel to joke that he was going to have Blick barred from the BBC's Maida Vale studios as he'd featured on so many sessions. In demand for a method of playing trumpet through effects that still remains a rare art, Blick pursued the Gyratory System project and developed a recording and production technique he dubs 'The Process'...
Angular joins the Record Store Day celebrations with the release of Gyratory System's critically lauded second LP, 'New Harmony' and a show at Rough Trade's RSD event.
