Former Throbbing Gristle mainstay Chris Carter has more than enough projects to keep him busy, which may go some way to explain why it took him the best part of eight years to record CCCL, his first solo album for almost two decades. Created using home-made electronic instruments, hacked effects units and "retro circuit modification", the album's 25 tracks were apparently inspired by a mixture of the Radiophonic Workshop's legendary 1960s electronic experiments and Carter's desire to utilize the kind of "nursery rhyme" melodies found in traditional English music. It's a curious combination, but one that guarantees a near perfect balance between far-sighted electronic experimentation and cheery tunefulness.
