Bird in Hand 7"

The exclusive and Bird in Hand/Theremin Memoir 7" vinyl is out today... :  

Read all about it below:

Dubmission Records and Gaudi follow up his critically acclaimed album “100 Years of Theremin (The Dub Chapter)” with a cover version of Lee Perry's classic 'Bird in Hand' production. 

Recorded on the 'Happy Roots' riddim, 'Bird in Hand' was Sam Carty's take on Naushad Ali's Hindi love song, 'Milte Hi Ankhen'. Here it’s re-titled ’Theremin In Hand’, with Gaudi playing the vocal line on the theremin, while Colin Edwin (of Porcupine Tree) plays bass and Horseman drums. 

On the flip is a brand new Gaudi original, ’Theremin Memoir', which finds him channeling Serge Gainsbourg and Ennio Morricone in his homage to their 60’s and 70’s films. Colin Edwin again plays bass and Sly Dunbar is on drum, while all other instruments are played by Gaudi. 

Both tracks represent a continuation of the themes developed on the “100 Years” album, with Gaudi’s theremin riding the riddims in the same way that Augustus Pablo did with his melodica. The instrument’s other worldliness proves to be a perfect fit with reggae’s earthy roots, allowing the melodies to glide and float in harmony. Bandcamp called it a “match made in heaven”, Electronic Sound a “true triumph” and Culture Dub an “unlikely but undeniably successful union”. 

'Theremin in Hand/Theremin Memoir' is the perfect accompaniment to '100 Years of Theremin (The Dub Chapter)', furthering Gaudi's tribute to Leon Theremin and his amazing instrument on its centenary.
