Subtitled 'In Search Of Sonic Oblivion', this new tome by Quietus writer Harry Sword goes in search of the 'eternal now'. I'll forgo the usual paraphrasing and let the publisher tell you more (because it's hard to beat)
"It traces the line from ancient traditions to the modern underground, navigating archaeoacoustics, ringing feedback, chest plate sub-bass, avant-garde eccentricity, sound weaponry and fervent spiritualism. From Neolithic beginnings to bawdy medieval troubadours, Sufi mystics to Indian raga masters, cone shattering dubwise bass, Hawkwind’s Ladbroke Grove to the outer reaches of Faust and Ash Ra Temple; the hash-fueled fug of The Theatre of Eternal Music to the cough syrup reverse hardcore of Melvins, seedy VHS hinterland of Electric Wizard, ritual amp worship of Earth and Sunn O))) and the many touchpoints in between, Monolithic Undertow explores the power of the drone – an audio carrier vessel capable of evoking womb-like warmth or cavernous dread alike."
