" Give my nerves a little workout,

I wanna sound like a busy signal
By day & night fillin' in the blanks. "
(from Vertical take-Off, part 1)

GR's Propel Tension On Polyester Base is a decisive effort in tape recording, 13 private tracks taken from the archives of an adventurous mind and forming a mysterious sound diary, a core part in the evolution of GR's style and a secretive work in progress highlighting an incessant appetite for putting a tentacular vision onto the recordable surface at hand.
Among the tracks presented here _ which were taped between 2008/2016 _ some are achieved in one blow with evident fulgurance, while some others are initiated early and completed years later in different spaces, non-similar phases, bringing to the sound textures some unfathomable provenance ; the material is relentlessly tracked down by following the natural path of self-autonomy over space & time.

" The featured material was taped non-uniformally,
various analog recorders and spaces were used
over a period of private stimulation. "
(GR mentions on the back cover)

The spectrum of styles & processes approached and developed by GR on those recordings is ultimately wide.
Free construct open rhythm, hear the dead snare at your heels, freer rock, hard kicking grooves & serpentine pulse shall scare the hell out of ultra moving asses in the rush, saturation, dangerous proto-punk, the most menacing monster-fuzz downtown, cosmic elektronische & psycho tape looping, abstract instrumentals, fingerpicking to the decadent, possessed vocals and wicked street-punk delivery, non-chordal guitar excess, reel to reel manipulations, a mastery of fixed sounds through the written & unwritten… — Propel tension on polyester base, tapes archives.

about

GR (Aka GRegory Raimo) France

I walked with Gregory Raimo in the alley-ways of circumstance.
From the gate it seemed strangely dream- like.
On this trail of shadows he never walks alone.

The crocodile guardians of the outer mind sway quietly to all this in the zombie realm. G.R. will lead the way when following finds a slow day.

Follow this when you are alive in this time.

_Billy Miller (Cold Sun/The Aliens)
