Overview

Like finely tattered lace, Gilgamesh created intricate music that was light and airy, its moods mostly gentle, yet its power incontrovertible. Two years had passed since the band's debut album, and the group had splintered, with the members going on to other projects. Regardless, 1977 saw keyboardist Alan Gowen begin composing music for a follow-up; he was soon rejoined by guitarist Phil Lee. Drummer Trevor Tomkins and bassist Hugh Hopper completed the lineup, and work began on Another Fine Tune You've Got Me Into. Floating between free-form jazz, fusion, and at-times psychedelia, what's immediately notable about the set is its complex and ever-shifting time signatures. In lesser hands, the changes would be disconcerting, but the musical riffs and swells of melodies provide a centering for the pieces, with the rhythms and music sliding and floating like drops of mercury. An excellent set from a highly talented composer and a group of excellent musicians. It's just a shame that the rest of the world was into punk rock at the time!
