Everywhere At The End Of Time - Stage 3

history always favours the winners



limited black lp

Released: 6th Oct 2017

out of stock


The third of a six album cycle cataloguing The Caretaker’s fictional first person account of life with early onset dementia, presenting some of the last coherent memories before confusion fully rolls in & the grey mists fade away.

Continuing to mirror the progression of dementia, using nostalgia for ballroom as an allegory of the disease, The Caretaker’s musical flow in places becomes more disturbed, isolated, broken & distant. On stage 3, the haunted ballroom’s repertoire becomes increasingly muddled, peeling off in recursive contrails from the gestures of ‘Back There Benjamin’, to snag on the stylus in starkly reverberant knots on ‘Hidden Seas Buried Deep’, or worn down to calloused nubs such as ‘To the minimal great hidden’, & ‘Sublime beyond loss’, all leading up to some of the project’s most uncanny detachments in ‘Libet Delay’ & the coruscating brass shimmer of ‘Mournful Cameraderie’, which beautifully suggest the mercurial nature of memory & its recollection.
