Live St. Peters, Preston, 1 October 2004 (Torch Songs Bonus CD)
I purchased Torch Songs for the Liles and stayed for the Coleclough.
"The bonus disc to this double LP of two heavy 180g Vinyl records sees him in live action at the “Intergration 3” festival, a concert which incidentally also forms the backbone to some of the tracks to be found here, and documents how he starts with the sounds of various outwardly unspectacular objects and slowly changes their timbre and functionality in a process which takes them into a mysterious yet never depressive space."
Info on this date from Andrew Liles News:
1st October 2004

from the art of memory: (regarding Torch Songs)
"this is another truly sublime drone album from the master jonathan coleclough. there is not much to say about it, i think describing this kind of music is a bit like talking about the air, i just wanted it put on the art of memory (blo)ssoming (g)oat because it is such a great thing."
