Named after a fragment of verse from the poem - Monumente by Rick Holland, CULTURE OF VOLUME is William Doyle's dizzying sophomore achievement, mainly recorded (like his debut TOTAL STRIFE FOREVER) on his own, in his bedroom at home in London. He explains: always wanted to make quite sophisticated music using very unsophisticated means. Weaving Pet Shop Boys style pop bangers next to industrial techno, next to sci-fi Scott Walker style ballads next to ambient explorations, next to Krautrock style synthesizer laments, Doyle makes his point: Part of the thing with this album and surrounding elements such as artwork has been trying to combine things that wouldn't usually go together. The whole vibe of the album is certainly trying to force errors by making unlikely connections and seeing what happens. As the man himself sings at the opening of the album: The end result is not what was in mind.
