Apostolic was many things: a label, a collective, a state of mind even. But before all of that, it was a recording studio set up by New Yorker John Townley. It attracted likeminded souls such as Frank Zappa, whose Mothers Of Invention recorded several landmark LP's at Apostolic. But the greatest example of the output of this artistic community was the sprawling double LP 'The Family Of Apostolic'. A utopian album, inspired by global cultures, with material ranging from Pakistani folk songs to Scottish traditional music and Chinese opera. The album was made by a cast of 19, bonded by a desire to create "primitive performance art" from surrealist happenings. Despite the possibilities opened up by the studio and the chance to treat the desk as an instrument, 'The Family Of Apostolic' is nonetheless a folk record at heart, and sounds downright spare in places. Limited to 1.000 copies.
