Description (English):
The B.E.F. return with a shape-shifting prog-rock indietronica record.
March 26th will see the return of The British Expeditionary Force with their highly anticipated next installment on Erased Tapes Records, entitled ‘Chapter Two: Konstellation Neu’.

The British Expeditionary Force, short The B.E.F., was formed in 2007 by Northerners Aid Burrows, Justin Lockey and his brother James Lockey. Whilst their trademark indie-electronica marriage ‘Chapter One: A Long Way From Home’ was solely created via email, the long-awaited sequel ‘Chapter Two: Konstellation Neu’ was recorded in one room, with two drummers and mad professors on synthesisers contributing to an even broader sonic palette. A sound that producer and ex-Yourcodenameis:milo mastermind Justin Lockey likes to describe as ‘prog rock, innit’. ‘The tactic we’ve used is the ‘more’ method. More sounds, more layers, more people. More face to face, more angles, more songs. If we’ve done our sums right, it should total more than the individual pieces’, explains singer Aid Burrows.
When reading through Aid’s song by song dissection of lyrical content, it’s hard not to feel the sentiment: ‘This one is a slight extension on the diagnosis of one of my nan’s slip into Alzheimer’s. It was written down on a little piece of paper from the psychological evaluation: ‘pleasantly confused, not oriented to time, place and person’. Or in other words, she’s probably right in step with the rest of us.’
‘This album is inspired by late night explorations and arguments, the random inputs of the internet, and some slippery tip of the tongue ideas that can’t completely be grasped or nailed like the tenacious whack-a-moles’, adds Justin Lockey. So here we are. It’s the year 2012. And it’s time to ‘Roll on Chapter Two…’(NME)
‘A more confident, expansive affair. Sitting somewhere in between prog, electronics and more traditional songwriting fare ‘Chapter Two: Konstellation Neu’ is a definite step forward from the band’ – Clash

作品詳細関西アンダーグラウンドの創始者であり立役者であった故・林直人(2003年没)。彼が生前に全力を傾けて活動の拠点としていたバンドが「AUSCHWITZ」である。パンクやノイズ、異形の音楽を演奏する関西勢の中で、ストレートでシンプルな王道のロックを演奏したこのバンドは、まさに大阪の底辺を支えたバンドであった。アルケミーレコードに残した3枚のアルバム(現在は全て廃盤)、林の死の直前に録音されたライブやスタジオ音源など未発表音源CD、初公開となるライブ映像を収録したDVDを加えた、まさにコンプリートなボックスが登場!解説は盟友・JOJO広重、T.美川が執筆!
アウシュヴィッツ プロフィール1980年に林直人を中心に大阪で結成されたロックバンド。サイケデリック・ロックをベースにしながらも、野太いハードロック、歌を聞かせるバラード、シンプルなロックンロールを演奏し、王道のサウンドを聞かせるバンドとして評価が高かった。1993年に惜しまれて解散した後は、林はノイズユニット「abm」を立ち上げるも、喉頭癌で2003年に没。アルケミーレコードから2枚のアルバムと、林の死後にEPやオムニバス盤の音源を集めたCDがリリースされていたが現在は廃盤、復刻が待たれていた。
