Glaikit Bams Paradin Doon Closes Aw The Nicht
On Glaikit Bams Paradin Doon Closes Aw The Nicht, Sleeper Service layer foond soonds oan tap o multiple guitars, tae creaut an intricate an at times dense album. Relentless motorik-hintin beats eik oot the cuirious rhythms o hoosehaud objects in a jubous dance, threitenin tae unleash unlikely mauments o funk. Metal riffs try tae find thair place amang sclices o skimmerin ethereal beauty. 

In Bremner’s ain wirds: “In the lang, lang nichts at the beginin o the year ah realeesed ah haed tae mak music again. Ah wantit tae mak metal – ma auldest musical luve – leavent wi hints o Krautrock. 

A few weeks in, ah noticed the hum o the extractor fan in the bathroom wis in the same key as the song ah wis workin oan. The song haed tae hae it. Things took aff frae there. 

I re-discovered ma love o findin the music in ivery dey objects, o playin a semple tuin oan metal lamp shades or diggin the squeak o a door hinge. The whine o a faur awa aircraft landin, the plip o a drap o watter, camera shutters an railwey bowts aw foond their wey intae the recordin. An, o coorse, there wis the endless permutations o gettin juist the richt guitar soond. 

For weeks oan end ah walkit the shores o the Firth of Forth listenin tae the sangs, afore returnin tae the studio tae tweak, refine an repeat. As the nichts reakit their shortest, wi the simmer sun settin ower Fife, inspiration frae the Scots leid gied me sang titles an completit an album ah niver expectit.”
