Forever Until Victory (The Singles Collection)
Album Released: 05 Oct 2009
Mingled with the sun as a young French poet once intimated, then unrelenting group disorder defines the everyday and mundane. Close Lobsters shimmer like the sun mingling with the sea, their sound is a storm of stones and sticks and half bricks and the barrage comes in chains of flashing images. Close Lobsters epitomise the very imperfect nature of things - unrelenting group disorder. Close Lobsters\\' sound radiates across star-crossed skies. Close Lobsters are alive. The songs in this collection come in lines and chains of flashing images. The singles were marshalled and brought together, collected if you will, in summer 2008 and now radiate again across star-crossed skies. The collection is entitled \\'FOREVER, UNTIL VICTORY!\\' in honour of not only the songs and the group, but the late Ernesto \\'Che\\' Guevara whose words they are. The tracks were re-assembled and re-engineered by Andrew Burnett and Graeme Wilmington in summer 2008 in the environs of Glasgow and Paisley - at the epicentre of the Close Lobsters universe. Close Lobsters are alive. The leitmotif of this collection is aphoristic - Be Bold and Mighty Forces will Come to your Aid.
