MuhMur Radio Aug 17 Broadcast
After the DRONEWEEK it is all back to (near as) normal at the SoundArt Studios. There was a plan (that was unfortunately only in my head) to work out a six hour broadcast featuring releases from the Drone Records catalogue and it's subsidiary labels : Transgredient Records and Substantia Innominata, but Chris decided he wanted no "live" broadcasts during the week, so the idea has been shelved, which is a shame as recently I received a great box of vinyl from Stefan at Drone (in Bremen) to spin on the programme. A few of those are on this programme. Raison D'Etre, Thomas Dimuzio and Ovro.
The Thorsten Soltau piece comes from a limited edition cassette put out on the m.m Label. It was recorded live in March this year. Also in the mix is a track from the new Hexas CD "Liberty Nest". The CD will be released later this month by Hagshadow.
August 17 saw the release of 3 great pieces of vinyl in the 1980's. In 1981 The Slits released the "Earthbeat" single and Cabaret Voltaire put out their "Red Mecca" album. A year later (in '82) A Certain Ratio and Factory Records released the 7" "Knife Slits Water". For some reason I don't have a copy of "Red Mecca", always slipped / passed me by ... I culled "Split Second Feeling" from the "Sound Of Sheffield" CD that Mute Records released back in 2002. If anyone has a spare copy of "Red Mecca" please get in touch.
The Anemone Tube track comes from their latest "In The Vortex Of Dionysian Reality" album. The track is by the project Monocube utilising sounds by Anemone Tube.
