The Island of Taste

**300 copies** Some of us will never forget when we first heard Idea Fire Company's majestic and tremendously beautiful The Island Of Taste. One of the absolute favorite albums of the last 10-15 years in the IDDB Gothenburg HQ, and Fördämning Arkiv are extremely proud to now actually be a small part of this album's legacy. Over the seven tracks, Idea Fire Company core members Karla Borecky and Scott Foust were joined by Jessi Leigh Swenson and Meara O'Reilly as well as Frans de Waard, Graham Lambkin and Dr. Timothy Shortell. A stark and romantic mission to the rocks! Comes in a full colour 4-panel digipack. Mastered by Zupe.

 

"The Island of Taste was originally released on Swill Radio in 2008. It was the last studio recording IFCO has done, at least so far. A CD reissue might be a bit insane these days, but Matthias of IDDB loves this record and wanted to issue a CD, so here it is. (I did 500 copies of the LP in 2007 and still have 50 or so left, so this is a labor of love.) Apart from Lost Victories and Last Man... Last Round, which Karla and I played together (I always play the radio live), this is entirely a studio construction made on my trusty four-track cassette machine from tapes people sent us and from our own recordings. The other thing I did on this recording, which I have never done before or since, was that I would pick a basic track for each piece and every addition would be speed-modulated so that the tape hiss/room sound would be in tune. I think that is what gives this recording its very subtle, but odd sound quality. This is also the only record I have ever done where I had all the song titles worked out in advance and built the music to suit. A lot of people think this is our best LP. These days I tend to think Anti-Natural or Music From the Impossible Salon, but I am not one to quibble. The CD sounds great too. Take a chance!" (Scott Foust, March 2019)
