Locust - Wrong




Released: 19th November 2001 | 18 track downtempo album
Wrong' features Holli Ashton on lead vocals, and various backing vocalists including Lisa Millet, Tara Patterson (Autocreation), Sarah Peacock (Scala, Seefeel, January) and 4AD artist Vinny Miller. Mark Van Hoen wanted to invoke some of the spirit of late 70's British electronic music, combining that sound with his now familiar brand of electronics. The fragility of vocalist Holli Ashton's, combined with the decayed and warped quality of the sound offer a warmth rarely found in such pure electronic music. Sometimes things just don't work out right... In the Spring of 1998 Mark Van Hoen AKA Locust had just finished exhaustively promoting the critically acclaimed 'Morning Light' album. This hitherto much lauded, yet underground electronica artist was about to break into the mainstream. But then things went wrong. The usual story of falling out with a small independent label which was eventually resolved with Mark's liberation. During this difficult time Mark recorded 'Wrong' - an album of songs with Holli Ashton. 'Whether helping to mastermind the sensual interweaving of guitar and sampler with Seefeel or scraping together the eclectic mix of desolate soundscapes and overpowering distortion of Locust, Mark Van Hoen is a stylistic chameleon leaving an indelible mark on the face of electronics.'
