Artifact Report #17/52a: The Restless Field at Sunrise Ocean Bender and John Coulthart’s Feuilleton
The radio show is an offshoot/companion off the record label with the same name, which releases records that wander from “psych rock to psych pop, prog to space rock via kosmische… detours”…
The album is also featured amongst the wanderings of John Coulthart’s Feuilleton, alongside/interconnected with considerations of the hidden reverse explorations of Coil:
“… by 2000 Coil’s music had moved away from the urban orientation of the 1980s to a pastoral mysticism that also had a political impetus: “The forest is a college / Each tree a university”. Late Coil also involved the construction of fields of sound, the products of fields of another kind: electrical and (possibly) psychical. I can’t speak for the latter quality but there’s plenty of the former in this collection of restless fields.”
Thanks to Kevin and John. Much appreciated.
The Restless Field is a study of the land as a place of conflict and protest as well as beauty and escape; an exploration and acknowledgment of the history and possibility of protest, resistance and struggle in the landscape/rural areas, in contrast with sometimes more often referred to urban events.
