Jan the Man releases a four-track EP, entitled ‘Extended Play 1’, via Chute Records.
The EP is the work of Spare Snare frontman Jan Burnett, who has previously recorded several side projects, most notably several multi-member collaborative efforts under the Grand Gestures banner.
However, ‘Jan the Man’ is, as the name suggests, a completely solo effort, the four instrumentals – “industrial, ambient, drone and soundscape pop” – being made at home on a 16 track Yamaha AW16G.
The four tunes – ‘Queen Bee’, ‘Jesus Suffering Fuck’, ‘Bleeding From The Bottom Of The Bottom’ and ‘It’s Not All About You’- were recorded before, during and after lockdown.
As well as a download, there are 25 CDRs of the EP available, each featuring a hand- printed sleeve accompanied by two photographic prints.
An ultra-limited run of five cassettes has already sold out – more on the release at jantheman.bandcamp.com.
