Ample Profanity

~ Laurie & Olly

Ample Profanity is composer Laurie Tompkins and cellist Oliver Coates' collaborative debut: coagulated gristle surfacing from a Beal, Brooklyn-brown, Ray V, Bangs, GAN, Rugs and Works acid bath.

The EP collects 5 pieces composed by Laurie and then co-edited and performed with Olly. The former plays keys, tape player, and samples, the latter cello with effects. Both sing.

Here is grazed, contorted classicism, here post-binge hallucinations, here gunky funk.
