PHILIP SANDERSON Passionate Particles
Passionate Particles is an hour-long compilation of tracks by Philip Sanderson (Snatch Tapes/Storm Bugs) drawn from LP, CD, MC, and DL releases made between 2000 and 2020. Storm Bugs were initially active between 1978 and 1982 and reformed in 2001. Sanderson had experimented with tape recorders whilst still at school, after moving to London in 1978 he began to get out of hours access to the electronic music studio at Goldsmiths College and also purchased a Revox reel to reel tape recorder setting up a DIY home studio. It was using these facilities that Sanderson recorded much of the Storm Bugs output from 1978 to 1980 with Ball designing the artwork for the releases. This new album contains a mix of both instrumentals and songs the CD is in the spirit of "a young person's guide to” the eclectic range of approaches taken by Sanderson. Reviews in the Wire magazine of the instrumental tracks have described them as being akin to “a boiling vat of electronic music that occasionally sounds like the work of a mad scientist”, whilst the songs have a “flavour of what Kevin Ayers might cook up if he were alive and forced to work with the Residents”.
