Recorded by a stretch of the A12, built in east London in the 1990s, ‘Near Wanstonia’ is an atmospheric journey, a distillation of a rich variety of sounds.
Almost twenty years ago, large scale protests against the construction of the road were ignored and Wanstonia was one of several ‘free states’ set up by occupying environmental activists along the proposed route.
The album, although at times resonant of sadness felt, is also a resilient, optimistic and an occasionally humorous expression of sonic life by the fast lane.
Previously known as Vole and ViV, the group’s third release is also a photographic exhibition with the recordings
Release includes PDF Booklet of notes and photographs.
