  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Ongoing Discipline presents the debut US release of Red Wine and Sugar. The Melbourne-based duo of Samaan Fieck and Mark Groves conjures worlds in the liminal space between the sounds of Robert Ashley and the cinema of Robert Bresson. Theirs is an approach which slyly inverts the concerns of power electronics to detail something far more disquieting - the condition of modern city life and its attendant worries. Joe Talia glass-mastered CDs in eco-friendly wallets.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Benchmarks / Stark via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

Benchmarks (11:27)
Salt is essential
In a precarious position
Having a pet, receiving government benefits,
and having young children
Systematically denied access to a timely remedy
A bitter experience of making complaints
Greeted at the door by a wafting mixture
of bleach, Pine O Cleen and Ajax
Feed the harmful bacteria and microbes in the gut
Stick to the 80/20 rule and you'll be good to go
One in five live with mould, flooding or leaking
One in four suffer ongoing problems with pests,
including cockroaches, moths and ants
It's hard to imagine a product or service
this poor in any other sectors
As it stands I have one basket of dirty laundry
It’s now a liability, not an ambition
It’s an anachronism in an age
when nothing remains permanent
Pseudonyms are used to protect
the confidentiality of survey respondents
