Chris Smith

FatCat stumbled upon the work of Australian guitarist Chris Smith during a trip to his home city of Melbourne in 2001. In 1998 Smith recorded the stunning 'Cabin Fever' album on Avalanche Express and two years later he released the follow-up, 'Replacement' on another Australian label, Death Valley. Whilst 'Cabin Fever' comprised of a series of short, focused tracks built from layers of drone guitar, radio-static, distant drums, humming melodica, and saw Smith working in a similar territory to that explored by artists like Flying Saucer Attack or Windy & Carl in the mid - late 'nineties, Smith's work since then has seen him move towards a somewhat fiercer and increasingly expanded sound world.
