1983 - 1986
One of the great lost voices of the British underground, the late Paul Kelday was a prolific explorer of the outer regions of analog synth, releasing countless cassettes between 1974 and 1986 that play out as deep and disturbed as the best Klaus Schulze or Conrad Schnitzler. He also was an occasional member of brother Phil’s free music outfit, New 7th Music. One Dimensional pulls together material from the mid-‘80s and it’s just gorgeous, a collection of distressed morse code signals chirping inside abandoned factories, fighting through wind tunnels of broken tone. It’s the best place to start with Kelday.
