North East prog rock instrumentalists The Support Band take the listener on a journey to the underworld and back in a double album that is so long it may well have started in 1973. Taking an inspiration from the atmospheric psychedelia of early 70s Pink Floyd, it is a sound moulded through gathering clouds of ambient synth keyboards and gently chiming, weeping, melancholic guitars.

The band is a collaboration between ambient artist Whitevanperil (WVP) and garage rocker Chris Riley of The False Poets. They improvise subtle mood building; tracks creep, nudge, knit and noodle until the truly monster 40+ minute finale of Dissociation (Part Two), which might easily be a whole album itself. Immerse yourself in Intimations.
