2015 release. Recital presents Idea Fire Company's Lost at Sea. Lost At Sea imagines the Idea Fire Company as a bar band on a small cruise ship. There are approximately 40 passengers aboard. Around 2/3 of them are in the lounge for the nightly Idea Fire Company performance. Most of them seem more interested in drink than in music. The ship has become lost and seems to be endlessly circling, Well stocked with booze and food, etc., the ship continues on. Idea Fire Company, armed with only a piano, trumpet, radio and synth provide the nightly entertainment. Lost At Sea is certainly the sister of the also piano-heavy The Music From The Impossible Salon (2011), but Lost At Sea has an air of weary optimism replacing the bleak sadness of Impossible Salon. For almost thirty years, Idea Fire Company has carved their own path, or dug their own hole, depending on your view, through the ever-changing world of underground music - Still violently committed to the avant-garde and to new forms of beauty, still romantic, still idealistic. In the old days, this sort of commitment was better appreciated. As a number of people have said over the years, every Idea Fire Company records sound different, but they all sound like Idea Fire Company. Includes a 4″ x 6″ postcard and download code. Edition of 400.
