GeoffreyO'Connor, one time frontman for euphoric guitar pop bandCrayon Fields, returns with his first solo album in seven years - but is itreally a solo album?For As Long As I Can Rememberis a suite of duets with some of Australia'smost iconic modern singers, including Jonnine (HTRK), Sarah MaryChadwick, Laura Jean, Sui Zhen and more.The album explores late night tales of unsublimated desire, a synth-popcocoon world where obsessions drift slowly into the rear view mirror andexert an unsteadying backwards pull. Geoffrey's duet partners do notproffer easy love or solace, rather they challenge him, gently put himdown, or glance back at a history of faded passion.Other guests include Nicole Thibault of Chapter artists Thibault, JessRibeiro, June Jones, Summer Flake's Steph Crase, Sienna Thornton(Cyanide Thornton) and Mystery Guest's Caitlyn Lesiuk. Sydney funksophisticate Donny Benet appears on bass on two tracks.Since his previous solo album, 2014 critic favourite Fan Fiction (written upby Pitchfork, Spin, All Music and elsewhere), Geoffrey has releasedCrayon Fields comeback album No One Deserves You (2015) and anexpanded reissue of 2009 classic All the Pleasures Of the World.He has also produced albums for Sarah Mary Chadwick, June Jones,Summer Flake and others. Geoffrey has appeared on records by The PainsOf Being Pure At Heart and Donny Benet, been remixed by Chet Faker,and was a member of Melbourne psych pop band Montero. He is also anin-demand video director, making videos for RVG, Bag Raiders, SarahMary Chadwick and many more.With For As Long As I Can Remember, Geoffrey's bleak dialogues with a starstudded cast make for his most compelling, most affecting album yet.
