Ruin's 5th album on Auricle is culled from favourite session pieces recorded during Summer to Autumn 2012. For this release I chose pieces that stood apart as new and different to what they'd done before. Not least the "almost commercial" (by Ruin and Auricle standards) opening song "Go Into The Light" a kind of mantric Hawkwind, Rancid Poultry with a touch of Guru Guru. "Eruption" I isolated from a bigger piece, as it stood up alone as a great piece of freeform improv. And the title? Well, it kind of reminded of the Kluster / Eruption works of 1970/71. That set the trend for the structure of this album, alternating rockier and abstract pieces. As usual, I took some liberties with the mixing, snazzying it all up a bit. "The Clockwork Movement Of Plasma" comes from the title of Curly's aptly bizarre cover drawing, yet another of his many talents!
