British brothers Clive and Mark Ives are WOO. They have been recording together since the 1970s. Over that time they have developed a sound wholly their own, combining acoustic instrumentation (primarily guitar and clarinet) and electronics in a way that makes their music both sound like being from past but also present and futuristic at the same time.Touching upon jazz, psychedelic, ambient and folk/pop idioms.Their work has drawn comparisons to Durutti Column and The Penguin Cafe Orchestra. They originally recorded two albums, the stunning 1981 debut “Whichever Way You Are Going, You Are Going Wrong” and the follow up nearly a decade later, 1989s “It‘s Cosy Inside“. Inbetween they released a dozen cassette-only releases. Since the band has been redicovered by a younger generation in recent years most of these obscure releases had been re-released by various international labels. This album, entitled “All Is Well“ is a new collection of unreleased material, mostly recorded in the 1980s. It´s poppy, upbeat, multi influenced music.
