Cat. No. un52006/41. __ Edition of: 100.
__ Released: 9th October 2006.
Formed sometime mid 1996 as an outlet for the guitar and beat experiments of Chris Jeely. From 1997 till 2005 Jeely released 8 albums,
and a handful of limited edition 7"s, 12"s and CDrs. Since 2003 he has played live up and down the East of the United States.
Anyone familiar with the Accelera Deck discography knows that Jeely is unafraid to try new things (witness 'Shadowland' from 2001,
his totally acoustic album) and so it is that after nine years of solo work that Accelera Deck has become a band.
Zach Evans played drums on the album 'A Landslide of Stars', later replaced by Brad Davis (also of Plate Six), Jeely sings, and plays guitar
while creating his usual damaged guitar tones, and caustic melodies via computer.
So what will all this sound like? Jeely says 'It sounds just like it should', Evans called it 'fire-rock' and 'blast-drone', and Davis simply says
'panties'..... no matter what you call it or what you say, Accelera Deck has created a pretty unique sound by combining some really simple
elements into a whole that is larger than the sum of its parts. Simple, repeating guitar figures (in a low slung non-standard tuning) and cyclical
drum patterns form the skeleton over which a laptop blasts out jeely's own damaged guitar loops. On top of the music floats jeely's disembodied
voice singing out meditative wordplays, and using all manner of metaphors to communicate the tension between a world that is dying,
and a world yet born.
Following the formation of the band, Accelera Deck set out to tour the East Coast and Midwest in April 2006 to support the album
'A Landslide of Stars' but after only 3 dates the tour imploded and the remaining dates were cancelled. In April 2006, Accelera Deck made their
first live appearance with new drummer Brad Davis and then entered the studio to record material for a 7" picture disc to be released on
Lathelight Ltd. Late June brought another live show.
The 'Instrumentals' liner notes state "this recording appears in its in original form before the music was edited and turned into backing drones
for the songs on the album 'A Landslide of Stars', which was released in March 2006 on Scarcelight Recordings." In the meantime Davis is concentrating
on making music with Broken Letters and Plate Six, while Jeely is focusing on Motorway and Skulllike.
