about

Rain was recorded with minimal fuss, with many tracks put down live. This should have made it a quick and easy album to complete, but it has been fighting me for years. The first batch of tunes appeared as ideas which, once recorded, did not work together. Then I recorded a new batch which did work together but, on reflection, did not work at all. Then I wrote some compositions which became two other (not yet released) projects.
I recorded some pieces early last year but then got heavily involved in the two bands I play with. Home, family and other musical commitments effectively paused Spingere until recently.

And now, here we are. Once I had finally decided to stick with an EP of material the music took over and now there is a full length album. Rain is related to Coffee-Housing and Perfetc in its approach and overall sound. Which is to say it will probably sound like dreary, difficult, self-indulgent noise to some. If you like dreary, difficult, self-indulgent noise, or if you liked the other albums, this is for you.

The album title comes from my love of rainy days and the poem ‘Rain’ by Raymond Carver.

Enjoy!
