The Council Flats of Kingsbury and Uncharted Audio present an obscured story with a distorted soundtrack. In a room above a shop, a disillusioned Hobo sleeps, only to wake in the presence of five charming sunflowers. All is wonderful, until the warmth and light of the sun is taken away.
Sunflowers is available for free as 128kbps mp3s, and name your price for higher quality formats only on councilflat.bandcamp.com. The Council Flats of Kingsbury Mini-LP is set for release as on Uncharted Audio, August 2009.
The Council Flats of Kingsbury biography
The Council Flats of Kingsbury have spent the past eight years eliminating all non essential thought, thus providing space for their imagination to give birth. They feel that they have recently been 'called' to combine tradition with digital technology, contributing towards providing a solution to aid the spiritual and fashionable needs of the 21st century youthful.
Uncharted Audio was set up around the turn of the century by Russ Parsons (aka Kone-R) and Dan Daley to bring you the finest electronic music money can buy. Dan left to become a family man but Russ has continued the mission, releasing a series of albums and singles across a mind-boggling array of formats.
Initially created as a vehicle to showcase the talents of their as-yet-unheard friends Cursor Miner and LJ Kruzer, the label has grown into a respected node of musical ingenuity and a flagship of the DIY aesthetic. Albums by LJ Kruzer (acclaimed by everyone from Mary Anne Hobbs to Mixmaster Morris, and culminating in a legendary appearance at the Big Chill Festival) and one-time Warp maverick and nude model John Callaghan have broadened the fanbase of the label since it’s early days of vinyl singles packaged in oversized food bags, and a 7” subscription-only series got the fetishists foaming at the mouth.
With a new single due from Cyan341 (currently getting heavy rotation from the likes of John Tejada, Move D and Benjamin Brunn) and albums by Octavcat and Line, you’re only going to be hearing even more in 2009.
"Uniquely British…. a label to be cherished" (FACT magazine)
"Can’t be explained in mere words" (Organart)
"A right royal bunch of shenanigans" (Smallfish records)
