The Hand Loom Lament Radio Hou... // 0200-0300 26.11.10
This week Worst Chips Ever is all about the sub-underground sound of New Sheffield... except no one is really calling it that, apart from Keenan but...you get the point.
Singing Knives is one of the most consistently killer labels in the UK, blurting out releases from a raft of post-free folk improvisers and ethno-skronking badasses including Harappian Night Recordings, Part Wild Horses Mane On Both Sides, Chora, Serfs, Dylan Nyoukis, Stephanie Hladowski and many more.
This episode Im gonna be playing tracks from the labels recent compilation "Thoughts From Screeching Lake" alongside some new tunes from The Hunter Gracchus as well as an edited version of one of the new Nyoukis blurps from the imminent re-release of the deliciously bonkers "Carrion Hut" LP, previously available only as part of an incorporated extra found accompanying the initial run of releases of "Inside Wino Lodge".
Other than this medley of guaranteed chart smashers, this show will be opening and closing with two tracks that bare the mark of Sleazy Pete Christopherson, sadly departed from our midst in his sleep just last night. This show is dedicated to him. Not that he would have given much of a fuck for such sentimentality.
A coule of treats from my two favorite electronic releases of the year so far get a run out tonight also. Step forward Raime and D.D Denham.
Elsewhere there is some neon long-lost-Miami Vice-action-sequence soundtrack fun from Daniel Lapotin's Games project, the fractured beauty of Hasil Adkins, some astounding free form vocalising from Sonny and Linda Sharrock and an unreconstructed blast of guitar battery from Richard Youngs recent Volcanic Tongue belter.
Wrap yer ears round it young team!
UPDATE: Due to my shitty freeware playing up there is some dead air doing the rounds this episode. Consequently, I had to cut short my Singing Knives special by a few tracks. To hear the full version, download THIS ----------> http://www.mediafire.com/?cz4amqgy3ke42m7
