Recorded and reworked sporadically between sometime in 2002 and March 2005, the second CD by Theme, 'Our Angels Dislocated', will finally be released in late 2005, when it hoped that the sleeve art (by sculptor, Mo Jupp) will be ready by. Following the group's debut, 'On Parallel Shores Removed' (Fourth Dimension/Tremor Recordings, 2000), it expands on the organic atmospherics explored there and comprises five pieces which drift into eachother like slowly melting icecaps over approx. 45 minutes.

Theme are essentially a trio (Stuart Carter, Richard Johnson, Hassni Malik) sometimes given to collaborative work or reconfiguring their music, with the addition of lengthy spoken word passages, for occasional live appearances.

Besides the two albums, they have also had work remixed by Band Of Pain for a compilation CD track issued with Adverse Effect magazine in 2003 and they debuted live in the Netherlands at Nijmegen's legendary Extrapool in March 2004. More concerts are also presently being planned whilst work on their third album is already underway.

All three members of Theme have a long history of music involvement behind them, with experimental-rock group Splintered standing out as both the most prolific or recognised and from whose final incarnation in 1996 Theme rose to begin with.
