Ci pensa l'americana Emotional Response a mettere un po' in riga trent'anni di irregolare carriera di Robert Storey, molti dei quali spesi sotto mentite spoglie nelle appassionate (e appassionanti) vicende dell'Orchestre Murphy, con le variabili The Murphy Federation, Up Murphy Street, The Murphy Love Experience e Murphy No Geisha, poi in Nobodies e The Plain People of England, con Atsuko Kamura, Croque Madame e Florence Raynaud. E con Bing Selfish naturalmente, fin dall'inizio (ma anche di recente, con il brillante The Indefatigable Logic Of Bing & Bob). L'antologia si intitola Come Up And Hear My Etchings 1986-2016 ed è disponibile sia in vinile sia in digitale.

Unsung hero of the DIY underworld, Robert Storey has been plowing his own furrow with a quiet fervor and understated elegance since the late '70s. Part of the London collective Club Integral and Resonance FM, Storey regularly pushes experimental music from the more interesting but less celebrated side of the scene, spreading a message of sonic exploration and creativity. As the heralded “dark heart of the Murphy Foundation in all its guises”, Storey’s playful ear for balancing melody and sonic experiments has led to a fascinating back catalogue chock full of quality works. Emotional Response are proud to release this career spanning compilation, encompassing engaging highlights from a remarkable man with a back quality catalogue.
