|december 2011 release ; ... coming in at 2011s 11th hour, this epic concatenation of the entirety of dome (aka wires bruce gilbert & edvard graham lewis) s recorded output is as mouth-watering & feature-laden as these things get (all three era albums in newly remastered, high-spec form with new art, plus the 4th from a few years later & the late 90s comeback set, along with reproductions of the posters that came w/ the original issues, a huge booklet, and a matchbox) ...|
... a perfectly logical link in the studio as instrument ethos that brought us faust, then this heat, ive long held domes canon of early-80s alien electronic pop music as something of a high-water mark in a continuum that eventually led to flying lizards (actually, they were contemporaneous), art of noise, etc ... nice to have everything in one handy desk-reference set !!!

editions mego are proud to release the complete recorded works of dome in a deluxe vinyl box set that that also includes newly designed artwork by david coppenhall, reproductions of the original atelier koninck posters that accompanied dome 1 and dome 2, insert with sleeve notes by howard jacques and neil martinson as well as unseen photos from the period. if that wasn't enough it also contains a matchbox to put matches in to shake along to your favourite dome tune!
with the demise of the group wire in 1980, founder members bruce gilbert and graham lewis joined forces to create dome. with the assistance of engineer eric radcliffe and his blackwing studio dome took the ethic of using the studio as a compositional tool and recorded and released three dome albums on their own label in the space of 12 months: dome (july 1980), dome 2 (october 1980) and dome 3 (october 1981). a final fourth album, will you speak this word: dome iv was released on the norwegian uniton label in may 1983.
these albums represent some of the most beautifuly stark and above all timeless exercises in studio experimentation from early 1980s alternative music scene.
with the re-activation of wire in 1985 it was thought that all dome activity had ceased. whilst no new recordings appeared dome utilised any spare time to secretly record new pieces. in 1989 dancer/choreographer michael clark commissioned them to record a piece for his new ballet because we must. in the same year they also performed live in rotterdam and amsterdam.
in 1999 wmo commissioned dome to record new pieces to accompany the recordings from 1989. this compilation, entitled yclept, would be the final recordings, to date, that dome have made.
dome 1-4 appearing on vinyl for the first time in over 30 years, whereas the recordings making up yclept (dome 5) appear for the first time on vinyl.
