Operatives A & B began recording for the Reigns organisation in 2002. Their first album, “We Lowered a Microphone into the Ground”, was a series of recordings made within a seemingly “bottomless” hole found upon the Somerset Downs. Their follow-up, “Styne Vallis”, was recorded in and around a submerged village that had been evacuated and strategically flooded in 1970 to make way for a new reservoir. “The House on the Causeway”, their third long player, explored an abandoned House at the end of a fog-shrouded causeway.
Their 4th album, 'The Widow Blades', will be released worldwide on 24 October 2011.
