RADVENT Day 10: Uncertainty Principle’s “Imitators of Miracles”

For the first 24 days of December, Radio in Opposition and guests will share with you one very special album, one day at a time. We call it RADVENT.

Ten days of RADVENT gems and we’re still going strong! Today, A. Tolonen of Nest shares a lesser known band with us.

I wanted to point attention towards this particular band that I don’t think has ever gotten the attention it deserves. Uncertainty Principle from the UK. They haven’t really been influential to anything I’ve done, musically, but I enjoy their stuff immensely. They began as something akin to Godflesh, and morphed into a slower, noisier, doomier thing by each album. I reckon they could be described as a funeral doom noise Godflesh. I recommend the first album “Imitators of Miracles”, and especially the song “The Meanings Of Portents And Signs”. I love all but just a couple of their albums, so I could have picked almost any other one too.. You can download this one (and all the rest too) for free (and legally) from this link.
