However, it was not to be and the opportunity and major label financing were lost, leaving the band with an upward battle to create an impact with Judges, Juries and Horsemen. The album's failure to take off led to the quick demise of the band and Peter Astor consequently became a Creation solo artist, his debut album seeing the light of day in Recorded with loyal drummer Dave Morgan, Laurence O'Keefe of The Jazz Butcher on bass and girlfirend Heidi Berry on backing vocals, Submarine is a subdued, melancholic album, perhaps reflecting the singer's mood following the traumatic past couple of years.
As such, this is not an uplifting listen; the well constructed 'Holy Road' and more confident 'Chevron' being the best moments, the remainder depressing in their surrender.

The 'Death' side consists of loops of I Wish I Was Somewhere Else - Peter Astor - Submarine distortion with plenty of screaming, whipping and laughter. The whole thing ends up with the ambiguous cry of "The horror, the horror" from Joseph Conrad's 'Heart Of Darkness', the complexity of meaning in that clever tale seemingly lost on The Brides Of Ashton.
Not the label's finest moment. CRE Hypnotone - Hypnotone. Following on from Ed Ball releasing Creation's first pure acid house album as Love Corporation, the second offering was the self-titled, minute debut from Hypnotone, The Crossings - Andy Duguid - Believe this stage the duo of Martin Mittler and Tony Martin, recorded in Manchester in Supreme Court Justice….
