Review of Study Series 08: Inversions

Belbury Poly and The Advisory Circle 


Jon Brook's The Advisory Circle reshape Belbury Poly's Wildspot as a butterfly folk refrain, recalling Michael Cashmore's finest pickings with Current 93, before segueing into a deleted scene from Lisberger's Tron (a disco sex do with Tetris money shot). Reversing the process, TAC's Now Ends the Beginning gets filtered through Belbury's Moog squiggle, riding rainbow nostalgia and the occasional adolescent hiccup to conclude what's possibly my favourite from Ghost Box's Study Series so far.
