Richard Pinhas - Reverse LP + CD

Richard Pinhas recorded seven influential albums as the leader of French space-rock pioneers Heldon in the 70s, with a further 5 solo records before a 6-year break from music in 1982. Since returning to the form in the 90s he has been prolific, collaborating with such lumina-ries as Merzbow, Yoshida Tatsuya, Oren Ambarchi, Barry Cleveland, and Wolf Eyes.Reverse’s dark experimental noise and long repetitive tracks have an intimidating first impression. But listening to the whole 50 minutes leaves one feeling purified. Pinhas even says this album “fixed” and “resurrected” him. “The original title was ‘Last’, because it was going to be my last album. But as I got better, I said, ‘well, we’ll reverse’”, he laughs. “It was a healing process for me to make this album. To get rid of all the negativity that occupied my brain. But that is all behind me now.” Pinhas does seem to have reversed whatever negativity came his way at the album’s beginnings and the future looks bright. October 2016 saw a successful tour of America with sold-out shows in New York, Houston, and Austin and ‘Reverse’ is his first album for the Bureau B label.
