I FEEL LIKE A BOMBED CATHEDRAL CDDPROMCD147
I Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral is the ambitious new project from Amaury Cambuzat – guitarist with the legendary faUSt and founder of French avant garde experimentalists ULAN BATOR.
Just two pieces spread over 50 odd minutes, this CD reaches levels of drone-like intensity barely heard since the days of Theatre of Eternal Music. Yes, it’s that good. When we first heard it at Dirter HQ, we didn’t want it to stop.

You need to tell the world how you feel and all you think is…
The electric guitar stands as analogue to the cathedral: a blown-out shell echoing with imposing history, lineage, collapse and eternal potential.
Amaury has conjured a haunted space inviting us to roam firm structures torn to chaotic edges; glimpsed hardness grown over organic and lush.
The sounds whisked up around us, from the most minimal to the most densely symphonic, remind us we stand in a place dedicated to the profound.
Between the instrument and the image stands the man himself. Amaury’s approach throughout I Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral speaks to his memories and lived experience – graduation from the classical conservatory in western Paris, his discovery of the guitar at age fourteen, his lifelong quest to infuse this instrument with fresh life.
I Feel Like A Bombed Cathedral is a testament to the past, to desecrated presents, and to the sacred horizon that is the future…The unchanging future which is always hope of change.
It features beautiful collage art by Cambuzat and is packaged in a gloss laminated digipac. It’s limited to 500 copies and is sure to be gone in a flash. Essential.
It will ship from us during the week of 10 June 2019, but won't be in the shops until July/August.
