Gravenhurst

Profile:
Nick Talbot:
-Moved to Bristol from the Home Counties in the late ‘90s, drawn by work from the likes of Third Eye Foundation and Flying Saucer Attack, “just completely new sounding music which blew my mind.”
-Was a member of Assembly Communications, a My Bloody Valentine-esque troupe whose swift A&R showcase-abetted rise felt uncomfortably beyond the control of the band members themselves. Instead embarked on the DIY path and founded Silent Age Records.
-Released his debut album, ‘Internal Travels’, as well as the early works of such West Country luminaries as Mole Harness and War Against Sleep (now signed to Fire Records).
-Also found time to partner Guy Bartell in establishing and maintaining the horror-evoking, experi-electronica outfit, Bronnt Industries Kapital.
-First released ‘Flashlight Seasons’ on Silent Age in 2003, a more complex work than the sparse debut long player, not least thanks to the increased use of drone-heavy arrangements in sustaining that ‘foreboding’ mood. Awarded ‘Album of the Year’ by West Country listings bible, Venue magazine.
-Signed to Warp in 2004.

Gravenhurst has expanded to a three-piece sonic folk ensemble, with Paul Nash on vocals, guitars and electronic devices, and Dave Collingwood on drums.

Nick Talbot aka Gravenhurst passed away aged 37 on December 2nd, 2014.
