Laurence Pike’s Prophecy album is out now. His third solo album in as many years, he continues in a rich creative vein. Developed over a four week period and recorded ‘as live’ on drum kit and sampler in a single day, with the ominous backdrop of Australia’s catastrophic wild fires darkening the Sydney skies. Pike eloquently describes the motivations behind creating Prophecy in a statement accompanying the album. It touches on global, human themes. Hope, frustrations and reflections on modern life.
You’ll find a glowing four star review in the latest Mojo magazine: “Laurence Pike’s pensive explorations of recently evacuated space intermittently trespass onto the contemplative terrain of his late great Leaf Label colleague Susumu Yokota, before tapping swiftly back into 2020’s motherlode of spooked recalibration”
