yellow6 - 'ion-e'.
01: ion-e (Part 1).
02: ion-e (Part 2).
Cat. No. un52006/52. __ Edition of: 100.
__ Released: 25th December 2006.
yellow6 has at times been described as post-rock, space-rock, electronica, shoegaze, ambient... The reality is that Yellow6 has some similarity with each
of those genres but is not so easily definable, using apects of drone, repetition, melody, harmony, noise and silence to create absorbing soundscapes to drift
yellow6 was created out of necessity in the mid-'90s, the necessity to make guitar music not confined to rock song structures, and the necessity of circumstance
to be a solo artist. Jon Attwood is a guitarist who grew up with Punk in the London suburbs, playing in the early '80s London Punk scene with a number of bands.
Landing in the mid-'90s with no band he started to experiment with guitar sounds, drones and loops, resulting in a debut single release in 1998 on Enraptured
Records. This was followed by a number of single, compilation and EP releases on many labels, with a debut album in 2000, also taking yellow6 into the live arena
Over the following years, yellow6 has amassed over 50 releases on nearly as many labels across the globe, remixed or been remixed by many similar artists
(Charles Atlas, Tristeza, Rothko, Maps and Diagrams, Amp, Bauri, Portal, Port-Royal) and played live shows in the UK, Europe and North America with Tarentel,
Tristeza, This Is Your Captain Speaking, Televise, ISAN, Christ., Jessica Bailiff and Charles Atlas.
'ion-e' brings yellow6 to Unlabel; this single 40 minute track is released as the final installment in the Unlabel series52. The idea of a single 40 minute track,
written and recorded in one six-hour session (bar an overdub or two and some mixing the following day) may sound a bit daunting and, most likely, a bit self
indulgent. Being a solo artist and recording what I like is totally self indulgent as I have no-one to please but myself. Having said that, I like this
recording and, if you like yellow6, you should too. It gives a pretty good idea of what yellow6 is about (guitars mainly), and itís got a track marker somewhere
in the middle as a handy break to make coffee!
