Fourth World Magazine - The Spectacle of Light Abductions (Tape edition) Other Labels


Super limited 2017 tape edition of Fourth World Magazine's The Spectacle of Light Abductions

“After many years as half of the highly influential SKATERS with James Ferraro, 2 solo albums on Olde English Spelling Bee (BLACK JOKER and MONOPOLY CHILD STAR SEARCHERS) and countless tapes and CDs, SPENCER CLARK has taken it to the next level. Layers of cosmic and alien sounds inhabit their own world and act as metaphors you can access subconsciously or explicitly. Clearer and more lucid than previous releases of his, this is a singular record of inner space exploration that operates completely outside the retro kraut-new age-synth trend so prevalent right now. Being more hi-fi than his past recordings, Spencer says ‘I have made an Alien Space Fusion Music that is an Aural Symbol for the pre-birth outer space-self's new Arrival.’ In this new zone, Spencer channels a more personal and spacious side of his vision, combining the rhythmic side of Monopoly Child with the abstractions of his VODKA SOAP project. 12 full-color pages of art, text and photos in the full size LP format. This marks the first LP release on Clark's Pacific City Sound Visions label. It stands as his biggest statement yet and will surprise and please. A beautiful record. Now it's yours to explore.”—On location at Hotel California, Scott Simmons
