We think UK producer Gerry Read was best summed up by the manner in which he decided to release his last album. Usually we know a fair bit in advance when an artist has an album on the way be it by PR and management companies or rumors circulated by those close to the artist therefore it took us by complete surprise when Gerry Read dropped his new self released effort Sauce Pan Jams on us without any prior fanfare in a limited edition of 100 CD’s through online outlet Records Are My Pillows without us having the slightest inkling the effort was on the way.
Now he has announced that he will be finishing the year with his fourth release of the last 12 months in a new two track effort landing via RAMP on December 23rd. Featuring titles ‘Been A Lot Of Places, Seen A Lot Of Faces’ and, erm, ‘Beatin’ My Dick To The Beat,’ we’re not sure that many of the 200 limited-edition vinyl pressings will be making their way into too many stockings this Christmas.
2013 has been a good year for Gerry and we’ve been pleased to see the enigmatic British techno upstart start to become as prolific as he is interesting. Here’s to 2014 Gerry!
