Release date: October 27th 2014

Following the instantly sold out release of The Duke St Workshops debut album "Lexicon of Paragon Pines" and the doozy of a 7” that even Clint Mansell liked comes the first widely distributed work from the Dukes.

Recorded at ‘Polyester’ the band's studio in Wigan. Cabin 28 is the soundtrack to a cold case from 1981. Set in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Northern California in a remote rural setting. The album soundtracks the case from the dawning of the day to the midnight and beyond.

From sanctuary and austere to threatening settings taking in influences from the likes of Final Program, Conrad Schnitzler, Bruton Library Music and Michael Small as well as sombre, melancholic films like Coma and Rabid. You might also reference the Birmingham scene of such lost ensembles as Broadcast, Pram and Plone.

REVIEWS

"A line from the seventies cosmic music goes right into the eighties synth music (area of Flowmotion and Neumusik) but still sounding very fresh today. Excellent release, sadly one that is way too short! Boohoo." [Vital Weekly]

"The white noise crackle when the white dot fades from the TV. They are essential listening – but then if you miss out this time, hang around about 15 years or so and ‘Cabin 28’ will no doubt appear on Trunk records – yeah that good." [Mark Barton, 'The Sunday Experience']
