The Rise And Fall Of Silvercity Bob

By Andy Gain

The machine is dead, long live the man-machine interface. Hard disk conductor Beat Soler has sampled from his collection of 50s easy listening and film soundtracks to create an album so astoundingly beautiful and melancholy that the term electronic hardly seems to apply. The album captures the story of Silvercity Bob (an imaginary trumpet player) who tragically dies in the end to the mournful lament of The Terrible Sound of Silence, leaving you eager to return to the beginning to give him new life.

In a world where the album has become merely a collection of 'trax', it's a breath of fresh air to listen to something so truly engaging and worthy of repeated listening. Something to cherish for years to come.
