O Yuki Conjugate: 25 Years of Willful Obscurity a CD & DVD celebrating a quarter
century of UK ambient pioneers O Yuki Conjugate.
In October 1982 the youthful O Yuki Conjugate played their first gig at the nowdefunct
Newshouse pub in Nottingham, England to seven people and a dog.
Three incarnations, seven albums and 25 years later all members past and present got
together in a West London studio to record an album in an afternoon as a way of
marking this unlikely anniversary.
The result – lovingly remixed by producer Rob Jenkins – is OYC25, five tracks of post-industrial, fourth world-ish, dirty ambience.
OYC25 finds the band in fine form, with an abundance of dub-like bass, micro processed rhythms and plangent pads.
The package includes a full length DVD of live recordings and rare footage that offer a unique insight into the band’s history, together with a complete alternate mix of the album.
The whole thing comes in a gatefold sleeve and includes a specially commissioned essay on the band by Dr Philip Shaw, Senior Lecturer in English at Leicester University.
NOTE: The DVD is a region-free double-sided disc with NTSC on one side and PAL
on the other. It is fully compatible with all DVD players worldwide.
