Peter Hammill 'Fireships'
"This CD has been unavailable for some time and I have now taken the opportunity to remaster it. The artwork has also undergone a spring clean. This was the first new recording to be released on Fie! Records, back in 1992. It set a benchmark for many of my future efforts.
I produced it in conjunction with David Lord and his wonderful orchestral arrangements are well to the fore. At this time I was particularly interested in a wide sonic pallette, applied to songs with an immediate and direct approach, usually centred on one, close-up, lead vocal. Percussion is minimal on these recordings and the tempo is generally slow, calm, slow.
This is one of my most accessible and creatively succesful albums of recent years and I am really pleased that it's going to be out there once more." ~ Peter Hammill.
