JOE BANKS catches up with former Stereolab man Tim Gane to discuss his new project, CAVERN OF ANTI-MATTER
“I don’t think coldly about music. I like responding to things instantly.”
Former Stereolab main-man Tim Gane is keen to dispel the image of him as some kind of kraut-pop boffin who carefully formulates songs from elements of the past. Since forming the Berlin-based Cavern Of Anti-Matter with Holger Zapf (synths) and Joe Dilworth (drums) in 2013, he’s released a series of limited edition records showcasing a harder, more electronic sound than his last group, yet one that still bursts with melodic invention. But pre-planned it’s not.
