Nothing On

Gareth Williams passed away from cancer earlier this decade but during the late 70s he was in a cult post -punk band called This Heat. After leaving the group in '80-something, he traveled across India for years. He spent the rest of his life making modest recordings with friends in Britain. 

I think he's a perfect example of a quiet, modest genius. 

This is from one of such projects. Recorded on analog tape.


  1. there are so many sounds. not so much instruments but sound...i guess anything that makes a sound is in fact an instrument. this is a real gem.

  2. Glad you enjoyed it.

    It might be sentimental, but his phrase "If music be the food of love, play on.." just sticks with me for some reason.
