HACKER FARM BUNKER SESSION #2

So, yeah...Farmer Glitch n I decamped last night to John's Bunker to make some noise. We recorded about 70 mins of audio - and it's sounding pretty damn good - all sorts of sounds spewing forth in a contiguous one-take electronic vomstorm, from nasty-sounding horror-film atmospherics to abstract robo-rhythms and psychedelicised noise.

I was particularly impressed by the Farmer's latest batch of homebuilt kit. I was so knackered yesterday that I forgot to take some photos of the sesh, but here's a pic of his workbench to give you a flava:



The Farmer was making some v. tasty sounds, I can tell ya. He sent me a brief slice thru the session. This bit sounds like, I dunno, some kinda glacially-slow Electro-Industrial Concrete-Dub.

Play Loud.

HACKER FARM: "BRANTANO / BABYLON HILL" by kekw




Hmmm: just finally upgraded from - *ahem* - IE6 to Firefox 3.6. Didn't realise how shit the blog-header looked in Firefox.

Actually, didn't realise how shit the blog was - full-stop.

Seemed okay on an older version of Firefox on the ASUS. Apologies to any foxy Firefox readers.

Anyway, I think I've now fixed the header and a couple other structural things that looked a bit crumbly. May tweak it a bit more over coming days.

I expect it now looks shit in Internet Explorer.

Tough.



Ironing my daughters' school shirts.

Heh. An underground noise.artiste's work is never done.

NOCHEXXX: "RITALIN LOVE"

Nochexxx on Ramp Recordings.

FARON YOUNG: "IT'S FOUR IN THE MORNING"

Sadly, I'm old enough to remember when this song originally came out. I think it was briefly in the charts in the UK.

I've always liked it on some level, but not entirely sure why.



Prefab Sprout referenced it on one of their hits.
