Amp is an electronic space rock band formed in London by Richard Walker [ AKA Richard Amp ] in 1992, after collaborating with David Pearce [ Flying Saucer Attack ] on the The Secret Garden and the Distance projects. Amp recorded the audio cassette ~ short story Green Sky Blue Tree with Ray Dickaty [ subsequently a member of Moonshake and Spiritualized, amongst others ] while Walker was studying at the Royal College of Art in 1992.

After a two year break, Amp resurfaced with French vocalist Karine Charff, Bristol experimentalists Matt Elliott [ Flying Saucer Attack and later The Third Eye Foundation ] and Matt Jones [ Crescent ] on board. This line-up released a string of 7” singles in 1995 and the album Sirenes in 1996. Jones and Elliott left to continue their own projects by 1997. Since then, Amp has centered around Charff and Walker plus a succession of collaborators, including:

* Guy Cooper and Gareth Mitchell of The Secret Garden, who worked with Amp on Astralmoonbeamprojections (1997) * Robert Hampson (Loop/Main), who worked as producer on Stenorette (1998) * Olivier Gauthier, on Stenorette and L’Amour Invisible (2001) * Jan Zert, on L’Amour Invisible * Donald Ross Skinner (a collaborator of Julian Cope and former member of Baba Looey), Marc Challans, and Ray Dickaty, on US (2005)

It's all in the description. For fans of " Flying Saucer Attack " ~ " Spiritualized " ~ " The Third Foundation " and the likes. " US " is a BRILLIANT start followed by " All of Yesterday Tomorrow " but you might want to get all titles here. [ Outpost ] on the other hand is more ambient than some of their other albums. Karine doesn't appear on this album at all but it's yet another EXQUISITE LISTEN.

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
