Following the untimely passing of Virgil Howe in 2017, Little Barrie underwent a healing process where returning to the studio and reconnecting through music, without seeking an end product, became therapy, an opportunity to work on bits and pieces Barrie had written for fun with zero pressure.
Aligning with Malcolm Catto, sticksman and producer for The Heliocentrics in 2020, new album Quatermass Seven slowly but surely emerged from this emotional exile.
Still rooted in the ‘Death Express’ sessions but seeking electrical energy coupled with the primeval feel of playing, Seven developed common ground and mutual respects exploring psych, late ’60s US funk 45s, British beat bands such as The Eyes, The Birds and The Creation, and the heavy heyday of early ’70s Detroit.
Recorded on Catto’s treasure trove of analogue gear, and mastered onto ¼” tape, guitar, bass and drums launched into the sweet spot where genres collide, landing at the feet of maverick hip-hop producer Madlib and his Madlib Invazion label.
