You are feeling sleepy…. those sweet eyelids of yours are heavy…. and drooping…. your head lolls…. snaps back… only to loll again…. you know you should go to bed…. but you know that sweet dreams lie within…. subconscious viewing…. the cathode ray tube…. no snowstorm…. no grey sky like a dead TV…..
Been a bit overwhelmed by reactions to the ‘Rollercoasters…’ 12″.
It’s been a good few years since I had a proper artworked vinyl release, so thank you Punch Drunk!
Here’s the video I put together for the track. I can only apologise to the genius that is G_nndy T’kovsky, and hope he would understand that it is made in the spirit of love and respect for his amazing amazing cartoon (especially the explosions….)
There’s so many hideous elements to this track, I’m not sure why it has such a power over me. I don’t believe in ‘guilty pleasures’, if you like something, you like it (and anyway, that whole schtick is just an excuse for people to go out listen to old crap, justified by a fake layer of irony (oh shut up you grumpy old sod (etc))).
Anyway, here is some old crap. My favourite eighties 12″ mix ever of all time ever. Using every trick available to the 1984 studio engineer.
Amazing weird drum FX, metallic up-octave pitch shift on the keyboard riff. Literally insane edits. Very unpleasant slap bass stabs.
Maybe it’s just that gear change, into the double time, that gets me. I don’t even really like the original.
Tis my great pleasure and pride to announce that my brethren of the bassbin, my sludgecore kin, those messy maniacs of Hey Colossushave released a brand new album this very week (out yesterday, release date fans!).
Roaring out of the mighty fine Riot Season label and entitled ‘RRR’, tis available on CD (with free live album download) and gorgeous limited edition handspraypainted gatefold double vinyl (if you see it, snap the bleeder up, tis already ‘sold out at source’ as they say).
well a little late admittedly, but here is the first of our three releases for this month…
(coming up in the next few days, second releases from Some Truths and Pipe Dreams OH YEAH)
The third instalment is an altogether heavier, psychier, weirded out beast (probably due to the glamisms of the source material, a now-deleted and replaced ‘best of’ from ’76…). No prizes for guessing who.
Here’s a new video, for the track ‘Young Americans’:
AND, here are two tracks you can stream or download, ‘Ziggy Stardust’ and ‘Changes’:
The album is available on cdr for £5 with FREE postage in the UK or europe, please email us:

New Coseph video, shot in the dutch sahara. The wind and sand combination was really something. I thought I could feel the whole island being moved slowly but surely, grain by grain, east towards Denmark:
Track from the (very shortly) forthcoming paper round tapes volume three.
No prizes for guessing the original artist though.
