The Michael Flower Band

Michael Flower has released debut solo album by founding Vibracathedral Orchestra guitarist and Chris Corsano duo partner Mick Flower, with cover art by Rob Thomas of Sunburned Hand Of The Man. Featuring material recorded between 2003 and 2005, Returning To Knowing Nothing seems to draw on more primeval drone strategies than even Vibracathedral with guitar/strings/vocals blending in a series of tracks that combine Eurasian sounding horsehair hee-haw with a flash of prole drone more commonly linked to Henry Flynt , Magical Power Mako and early John Cale and the kind of tone gargling associated with members of Pandit Pran Nath’s immediate circle. A deeply personal tho still historically reverent series of drone scores and one of the best recordings to come out of the whole Vibracathedral implosion. Highly recommended.
