This new Trunk compilation offers a portrait of the library music company Studio G, established in the 1960s by ad man John Gale to counteract the dearth of decent library material tailored for commercials. Perhaps somewhat appropriately for a shortform medium like advertising, the label started life on the 7" format before graduating to LPs, whose material became popular for usage on TV shows over the ensuing twenty-years or so. Examples of Studio G's music were heard on such shows as Vision On and television coverage of what might be termed the less glamorous end of the sporting spectrum such as darts and crown green bowls. There's a certain potting shed charm to the studio's output, keeping the mixture of compositional and instrumental elements to a manageable minimum. You'll encounter a real elegance and simplicity of conception behind pieces like the synth vs. guitar standoff 'Folk Ghost', while other contributions are more about recording and process than they are conventional composition: 'VoodooTronics' keeps its focus by reveling in tape-edit experiments. As tends to be the case with the best library music of this era the electronic elements are freakishly inventive, transcending the by-default wallpapery nature of the format and providing some delectably ear-tickling moments. That said, it'd be unwise to expect any Radiophonic innovation here, but it'd be equally remiss to think of this as easy listening schmaltz. Ditties (and if ever there was call to use that word it'd be here) like the irrepressibly jaunty 'Five To A Bar' rub shoulders with more abstract, esoteric fare, such as the compellingly avant-garde 'Deformed Theme' and the dubbed-out woodwind delays of 'Visions Of 200AD 4'. Sifting through G-Spot's discography, a compilation/label retrospective like this represents what Trunk does best: G Spots gives you access to another world of sonic wonders that'd otherwise be all-but lost to the ravages of time.
