t and ‘non-musician’ Gareth Williams threw his lot in with the Flaming Tunes project, a collaboration with Mary Currie. The resulting cassette, 1985’s Flaming Tunes, is a stunning combination of lo-fi experimentation, graceful songwriting and agreeable New Age mumbo-jumbo. After Williams passed away in 2001, Currie has worked tirelessly to preserve the album’s memory. Flaming Tunes is now set to see release on vinyl for the first time, courtesy of Blackest Ever Black

GARETH WILLIAMS & MARIE CURRIE ‘Breast Stroke’ (Flaming Tunes, 1985). If there’s such a thing as a perfect album, Gareth Williams & Marie Curie’s Flaming Tunes might be it. The late, great Williams was a member of This Heat, and after that combustible trio flew apart for the last time, he hooked up with Curie and recorded this beautiful cassette, which effortlessly takes This Heat’s penchant for studio experimentation and wired intensity and lands it in a more bucolic, agrarian space
