Efrim Manuel Menuck hate the industry. co-owner of thee mighty "hotel2tango" recording studio. recorded good and bad bands there. a loudmouth sometimes. and can be a moody motherfucker and a total drag. Simon Booth Album of the year 2018? A unique, challenging and deeply rewarding experiment in noise and texture. It's impossible to pick a favourite track really, the album demands to be experienced as a whole.

Efrim Manuel Menuck (born November 4, 1970) is a Canadian musician involved with a number of Montreal-based bands, most notably Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra. Menuck is also a frequent record producer and engineer, working with musicians from Montreal and abroad. Menuck was born in Montreal but grew up primarily in Toronto. He moved back to Montreal when he was in his early 20s. His father was a doctor and his mother was a nurse.

But perhaps the strangest thing was seeing Efrim Menuck recede back into the role of silent, anonymous, ensemble player. More than any other member associated with the Montreal orchestro-rock collective, Menuck has spent much of the past decade deconstructing the mythology and challenging the assumptions surrounding Godspeed (take your pick: they're anarchists; anti-social; humorless; Luddites; squat-dwellers; et. So perhaps it's no mere coincidence that Menuck's re-immersion into the Godspeed regimen coincides with the appearance of his first solo album, Plays "High Gospel", a record that, in spirit if not sound, recalls another solo album released in the shadow of a monolith: John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band.

Efrim Manuel Menuck is best known as co-founder of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, leader of agit-chamber-punk group Thee Silver Mt. Zion, and member of the Vic Chesnutt Band (2007-2009); he has a combined thirteen albums under his belt with these three groups.

Efrim Manuel Menuck's debut solo record, Plays 'High Gospel' arrived shortly after his band Godspeed You! Black Emperor reformed in 2010. Although Menuck has always kept himself busy during Godspeed’s fallow periods with projects like Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra, something about their activity seems to inspire a need to create independently of a collective  . He has described the album as partly about how stubborn lights endure and this conflict of origin versus outcome seems to flood the record.
