about

Completing The Cycle by Mint Biscuit

Another compilation of instrumental tracks written over the last ten years or so by Richard Thomas, recorded at home in Cockermouth, England.

Named so, because on the day of release, my wife Rachel Thomas completed the Lakesman in Lockdown Cycle Ride (57 miles) around the Lakeland fells, with her friend Linzi Harrison. Go girls!

Review of Completing The Cycle
by Hans Werksman of herecomestheflood.com

"What started out as a one-off collection of guitar excursions quickly evolved into something bigger. With the release of Completing The Cycle, Richard Thomas inadvertently created a trilogy of homemade albums by his solo project Mint Biscuit.

The basic format is simple: he picks a guitar, chooses an amp and a few effect pedals, and lets his fingers do the talking. By doing so he is able to unleash his inner Marc Bolan (The New Amp Question, City On Lockdown), go mental and metal in the aptly named Metallicanteven, and stumble upon a catchy motif a la Adrian Belew in Turn That Fan Up To Eleven.

It is obvious that Thomas is itching to play. Hopefully he can reconnect with like-minded musicians in the same room soon. He sure can bring a huge stack of ideas to rehearsal. Tracks like the chugging Trainline Blues and Spanish Brown Cow Blues can really blossom in a power trio format".
