Tolerance Manoeuvre CD

Flashback Records, purveyors of second-hand vinyl and CDs in Shoreditch, Islington and Crouch End, continue their own-label programme with In Memory, the debut album from Tolerance Manoeuvre.

A trio comprising Steve Arnold (cello, vocals), Joseph Stokes (electric guitar, vocals) and Sarah Woolfenden (trumpet, vocals), Tolerance Manoeuvre’s music is a spare and immersive blend of folk, jazz, indie and ambient. Elliptical resonances include north London singer/songwriter Bill Fay’s elegiac early 1970s’s albums Bill Fay and Time of the Last Persecution and Talk Talk’s 1988 one-off, Spirit of Eden, plus a dash of coming-down Velvet Underground. The album is available on vinyl and CD.
