The Caretaker / Leyland Kirby thread

Recommended Posts

Stage 5 is a complete masterpiece and perhaps the climax of the set. The tearing, pulsing noise driving the muddied jumbled mess of past memories... it is incredibly evocative and disturbing at once.


Gonna take a long time to digest this. I will need to go back and listen to the prior 4 parts in order, so I can fully comprehend the context of this one. Especially want to hear 4 and 5 back-to-back.


Part 6, I think, will be either mostly silence or mostly crackling noise, perhaps ambience resembling the "Take care. It's a desert out there..." CD. It's going to be one hell of a way to end the project. One of the greatest projects in modern memory, I think.


In lighter thoughts, I hope they make an outer box to buy for the people who have managed to accrue all parts on vinyl. I would love something encapsulating like that. I have all 5 parts on blue and will not miss part 6.

there is also this if you didn't see it

Work on 'Everywhere, at the end of time' was all consuming 
as you can imagine. All work and no play, all work and no play. 
In celebration of its completion and only for a limited time* 
here is a surprise golden farewell. 
Compliments of the house. 
Offering you one last chance to raise a charged glass for 
those we lost along the way, for all the works, for those ghosts 
from our past, for our uncertain future and for The Caretaker. 
You are of course welcome to purchase me a drink if you find 
this work to be of personal value. 
As the old saying goes "I'm the type of guy who likes to know 
who's buying their drinks, Lloyd." 
Thanks eternally for your support. 
C'est fini.
