ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Lush beats and cinematic soundscapes", The Big Chill.

The Cut (E.P.) includes 'Prelude' the soundtrack to the US Axe commercial where the women are rubbing metal objects and the guy chucks the empty can in the recycling bin. Also featured on the E.P. is City at the Edge of the World featuring the wonderful vocal talents of Lucy Heyman. Older Central (track 4) is a new version of Old Central from the 2004 long player Salary Man (available on Karvavena / Iris Light Records). Prelude and tracks 2, 3 and 5 will feature (in some form) on the next Avon long player "Polar Bear" - these are unique mixes for the E.P.

"Dreamy, borderline sleaze", Electronic Music.

Avon began life as a DJ name and moniker for UK Bristol-based producer Ken Peel and is now a sometimes collective of musicians, "The Avon Collective", and a series of collaborations with singers and singer-songwriters. Currently Ken is collaborating with vocalist Lucy Heyman on key tracks for the next long-player Polar Bear. The name Avon refers to the anti-hero of cult 70s BBC TV sci-fi series Blake's 7, not the international mail order cosmetics company ;) So far, Avon has contributed "Legs" to The Abduction of the Art of Noise (compilation CD, Karvavena records 2003), and produced a critically acclaimed album "Salary Man" (Karvavena 2004). 2005 has brought exposure in the US via the Axe commercials and now The Cut E.P.

"slinky, trip-hoppy electronica balancing esoteric sound-sculpting with swaying melodies", Venue.

Live, Avon takes the form of, as the BBC put it "One Man and His Laptop". Actually, it's a laptop, a big stage piano, a synthesizer, a smaller synth, a little mixing desk and Ken and collaborators.

Excellent chill out cd.
I heard a couple of tracks on a DAB station and bought the cd. Utterly fantastic, can't stop playing it. Immediately purchased Salary Man and was even more impressed.

Good choice for those who like ambient, down tempo, easy listening.
I heard Older Central on an Internet station that plays ambient music and liked if very much. I purchased the CD just for that cut (I use this type of music to relax and relieve stress and tension). After listening to the everything on the CD I found that the rest was just as good as Older Central. Although I am not fond of vocals when relaxing (hence 4 starts), Ms Heyman's vocals seem to fit with the other cuts on the disk.

This is good choice for people who like ambient, down tempo, or easy listening. Enjoy.

Untitled Music

"stunning, soulful, eerie, beautiful, jazzy electronica"
Following the critical acclaim of last years ‘Salary Man’ album Avon has taken his music live and onto many of the UK’s finest cutting-edge music shows including Flo-Motion on XFM. ‘The Cut EP’ has a more lounge lizard vibe, with plenty of chilled tracks to enjoy. ‘Prelude’ currently a US Axe commercial theme tune – featuring women rubbing themselves with metal objects – don’t ask – has some dramatic beats and a sense of drama with rumbling bass gathering overhead as moody chords create a late night, slightly jazzy vibe down below. ‘City At The Edge Of The World’ introduces Lucy Heyman. Lucy delivers beautiful vocals, chillingly touching, searching and sexy – I think I’m in love already!! There’s five tracks to enjoy, and each one of them is amazing – if you thought ‘Salary Man’ was good then this EP will blow you away – stunning, soulful, eerie, beautiful, jazzy electronica.
