Two Years after the release of his groundbreaking record, 'Last Train To Lhasa'...
...Toby Marks (aka Banco de Gaia) emerged from the British countryside with this masterwork, Big Men Cry. Known by fans as perhaps the most ambient and textural of Banco's releases, Big Men Cry includes 'Celestine' a 12 minute classic that features Dick Parry (best known for his seminal sax playing on Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here).
Impossible to classify, but think Royksopp, Zero 7... The Orb, Pink Floyd and 'Papua New Guinea' -era Future Sound Of London as markers. Even then you're only scratching the surface.
Banco de Gaia will give those duking it out for a piece of the electronica sales pie a reason to sweat with Big Men Cry. 'Celestine' features the sax work of Dick Parry, whose solos can be heard on Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon.
