Sugarbabes - Too Young to Remember Numan

Playlouder mention the media reports that Sugarbabes, the female babe teenage trio at number one in the Uk Charts are Too Young to Remember Numan

I didn't have a clue who Gary Numan was, I wasn't born until 1984. But my parents told me about him.

Aiight. : Gary, on the blower from Mexico, said, "The Sugababes are very young. It's odd to think that when 'Are Friends Electric' was a hit the girls weren't even a twinkle in their fathers' eyes.

I am getting older or are the yoof of the day getting younger? Both !

Good tune though especially for a Number One, the Numan sample and flow of the vocals work well.

This Week's New Releases @ Boomkat

This week's new releases @ BOOMKAT A PELICANNECK ELECTRONIC MUSIC STORE

String Theory - Anhedonia - Consumers Research And Development Label

Having made their debut appearance on one of Skam�s infamous �Smak� 12�s, String Theory arrive with their brilliant debut album. The Consumers label, based jointly in the Californian and Ilinois musical hotbeds, have really gone and done it with this one. Amongst all the amazing music issuing forth, torrent like from the States at the moment - Dabrye, Hefty, Geoff White, Joseph Cotton, Sutekh...we'd have this sitting on top in the big canoe labelled ABSLOUTE CLASS, effortlessly rafting the white water. Josh Davison and Nathan Tucker with the opening, emotion laden chords of �Multi� just take away the breath. The sounds are laden with immense feeling, imagine Casino versus Japan jamming with Boards, the Bola man at the console, and perhaps we're still nowhere near describing how crucially brilliant this is. The scuttling beats of �The Peel� eschews the glitch and instead we have a big sky of sound, opening above our heads, and of course the strings, oh yes the strings. �We Are Blowing Up� should prove a highly apt track title, its slightly detuned keys again carrying that supremely warm childsplay melody, the beats are exubarent fresh, rolling with the assurance of the gifted. Onto Side Two, �That Girl Is Blue Shifting� just charms relentlessly, a chirpy rhythm which is the kind of house but not house tempo Safety Scissors might conjure, but without the cut up, again the melody line is king here. Hum it on the bus, sing it to the streets, just great popular music, without the parp. �Dregs� closes a truly wicked album, seams of purest sound and compassionate warmth, and the anticipation...then the change up, a rhythm of which Akufen would be proud, yet more electronic, more generous with the bass than Marc Leclair and still those heavenly synths. We suggest you support the Consumers in all their future Research and Development projects, for this is an unmissable record from a hugely exciting new perspective. Faultless.


A Small Good Thing - Slim Westerns Volumes 1 + 2 - Leaf

Slim Westerns Vol II is the follow up to an album originally released in 1994 on the US Soleilmoon label. Like the first album, Vol II is the highly evocative soundtrack to a Western that will never be made: think Morricone, Badalamenti, Adamson, Cooder, Calexico and The KLF�s Chill Out and you�ll be heading in the right direction. Housed in the high-quality packaging that The Leaf Label is renowned for (designed buy Non-Format), the Slim Westerns Vol II CD package includes a full colour 12-page booklet featuring a fake pulp Western novel that reflects the music within. This limited edition of 2000 copies includes the first volume of Slim Westerns, never before released outside of the US. Check.


Aoki Takamasa - Silicom Two - Progressive Form

Japan�s Progressive Form label has set the scene with it�s releases from Monolake�s Robert Henke and Joshua Kit Clayton. Now that it has your attention, it�s time to unleash the true ace in the pack � Aoki Takamasa. This seriously astonishing album comes from an artist whose previous work and form is unknown, but who has managed to guarantee that we�ve listened to little else this week. Simply put, �Silicom Two� sounds like the kind of record you�d expect to hear from Autechre after taking another new and entirely unexpected turn. In other words, it represents a new twist in the evolution of electronic language � one that has no preface and little precedent. Spanning across 11 tracks of pure innovation, there is a mangle of ideas and twists here that doesn�t surface very often in this world of increasingly predictable and uniform ideas. The opening �Ope� lays the table with a robotic beat twist that remains organised while indulging in an array of static and heavy digital intervention � EP7 is a lazy reference but one that will have to suffice due to a severe lack of invented vocabulary for this sort of thing. �Monc�, similarly, deploys the kind of deep low-end rhythm structuring and tweeks that are often attempted but rarely accomplished with any level of success. So much DSP manipulated music these days seems to emanate from a wanton desire to reflect rebellion and vaccuous experimentalism � Aoki Takamasa, meanwhile, evokes the idea that every twist and turn has been carefully selected, executed and assembled. The result being a deeply original piece of work that devestates when played loud. Essential.


Black Dog and Black Sifichi - Unsavoury Products - Hydrogen Dukebox

With a dubious selection of projects undertaken since his split from brothers in Tweak � Plaid, the Black Dog has failed to retain the same kind of fervent following that his early works seemed to produce so effortlessly. This collaboration with spoken word artiste Black Sifichi makes for an unusual listen, the music sees some return to form � an almost �Spanners� era playfulness that�s adapted here specifically for narrative accompaniment, and even a scattering of some classic Black Dog moments mixed in and out of proceedings. The spoken vocal, however, gives this a slightly disturbed feel that doesn�t bring out the subtleties of the instrumental pieces very gracefully. Those with an aversion to spoken word would do well to steer clear, while fans of the Dog might want to listen before purchase.


Freescha - Slower Than Church Music - Shingle Street

Back from the west coast come the Freescha boys, and its a pleasure to welcome them once more - ever since the Kids Fill The Floor double album charmed our pants off, over a year ago now. Their blend of stargazing californian electronics, seasoned with liberal dashes of analogue warmth, has always carried the same kind of heavily emotive, considered charge you might find in the best work of The Boards Of Canada, or the more contemplative moments of Air. Mollusk gives us a short introduction to a crispy, dsp'd kind of sound designed perhaps to distract. The its on with the slow, the title proving unerringly accurate for the tempo and also the devotional feel of much of Freescha's output. The loom would fit perfectly with sunset, and there is a kind of natural awareness in this music - electronics tempered with a piano here, some real drums on Boogy Foot and the hint of the human voice behind all of this. Slower Than Church Music should please all existing fans and entice fugitives from the latest Boards' offering. Sanctified tunes.


Lowtec - Secret Corner - Source (Germany)

Jens Kuhn has distinguished himself of late with a series of critical, glorious twelves for Playhouse, and a track on the fine double Out To Lunch compilation. So it is for one of his fellow contributors to that compilation, Dave Moufang, that Lowtec turn to deliver this double album. For an idea of Jens special ability head straight to Lower Hutt, savour the keys and just wait for the dusty break to drop. There's deep understanding of what will work on the more soulful electronic dancefloors of today, and clear affinties with the work of Moufang himself, as well as other favourites of ours, such as Perlon on City Limit and American house dons on Stamping Ground. Strings to die for, heartmelting analogue keys, and on 1973 just sheer rude head nodding midtempo fatness. Extremely accomplished set from a guy who's clearly going places fast.


Naono - Slope Drifting - Vibrant Music

Latest full-length offering on Fluxion�s excellent Vibrant Music label, this time coming from newcomer Naono. A subsidary of Chain Reaction / Basic Channel, Vibrant music has excelled in applying the deep and reverb-ridden sound of those labels onto a sound that�s less rigidly 4/4 driven. Naono fits into this aesthetic perfectly � a melange of sound and instrumentation permeates each of the 14 tracks here, moments like �Amer� shining with an infusion of Fender Rhodes keys and some sparse but intricately assembled percussion, shards of sound keeping to a deeply accessable and moving tone. Elswehwere, as on the magnificent �Refill�, slight dub standard infiltrates a horizon of delicate beauty and multi-instrumentation : the result being a deeply moving and highly original piece of work. Recommended.


Plaid - P Brane - Warp

Back again, Plaid are on a roll and keep the flow of work coming at a good rate, 4 new tracks to keep you busy with until the next album lands sometime.... P-Brane finds Plaid on somewhat new terrain, marginally less playful and spacious, the opening �Coat� keeping the synths to a restrained whisper while the seriously squashed percussion gives a hip-hop paced schematic-esque layering of DSP�s and intricacies that have undoubtedly been inspired by that Miami sound but given here a distinctly Plaid-ian twist. The end segement surrenders and gives way to a wash of melody and synth � reasserting that unique sound the boys have perfected over the years. �Stills� on the flip opens at similar pace but makes an about turn halfway through, the beats accelerate and the melodies unfold to reveal classic Plaid romanticism and anticipation � lovely stuff. Last track �Mfaus� is the most relentless on offer � fast and heavily processed, academic and technologically minded production that takes a couple of listens to sink into. In all, seriously strong material throughout.


VARIOUS - Disco Nouveau Volume 2 - Ghostly International

Straight onto part 2, and if you ran out of breath flexing yr dancing shoes for Part 1, you�re going to be ruined by the end of this! The players : Legowelt, Solvent, Charles Manier and Perspects, the sound : Disco Nouveau! Legowelt is first up, the king of the Hague has fast established himself as the resident in chief of all things Italo Disco and discoid frenzy, so it�s no surprise that his �Disco Rout� here is as devestating as it is � twisted limbs glitter accros bouncing basslines and a glitz-attack that demands smiling. Suction�s Solvent is up next, classic Solvent robot friendliness and vocoded delights eventually give way to a creeping disco bassline that nods towards his fellow contributants here, one for the kids! Newcommer (to us at least!) Charles Manier opens the flip with a Conga roll that gives way to a devestating acid line that really is nothing short of HUGE. Whoever this guy is, he�s got our attention! Ersatz luminaries Perspects are up next with �They Keep Dancing�, wherby the �Nuvo Mix� unleashes a pure synthcore pastiche that really must chart, Oakey�s vocal comes to mind once again, before the instrumental version illuminates everything that�s so enjoyable about this massively popular 80�s revival sound. Immense.


VARIOUS - Electro Commando Vol.1 - Welcome To Psi City - Psi49net

Absolutely huge electroid compilation on Anthony Rother�s Psi49Net label, bringing together a staggering 25 tracks across double CD and tripple Vinyl from the likes of Froyd, Novo, Boris Divider and shedloads of tracks from Rother himself under his own name and a host of aliases. Flawless tough electro teritory throughout, wickedness guaranteed. Recommended.


Smith and Mighty - Life Is.... K7

The usual S+M mix of reggae, dub, hip hop, breakbeats, drum n�bass and soul make an appearance on on �Life is...� . Smith & Mighty worked with old mates such as Rudy Lee, Nijii Forty, L.D. and MC Chaos, that were already heard on �Big World Small World�. Additionally, a handful of new vocalists have joined. The MCs and singers all come from Bristol, are friends or friends from friends or were heard performing live and invited to a session into the studio. Shantal, Hazel Jane, MC Bunx and Caroline are the names of the new voices and they contributed significantly to the new orientation of Smith & Mighty towards song and more melodic tunes.

Music Non Stop - Forthcoming Releases

Music Non Stop have updated their forthcoming releases:

Audra - Going To The Theatre

AUDRA were praised as the next big thing from the US Goth scene after London After Midnight. This is a remarkable album evoking such influences as David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Roxy Music and the Velvet Underground. Going to the Theatre (the second full-length release from Arizona-based brothers Bret and Bart Helm) presents ten snapshots of characters confronting the images and experiences that fuel their passage from child to adult, from innocent to debased. Between the sultry cabaret grind of ''Midnight Moon Swing'' and the sullen, lonely guitar of ''Don't End This Time,'' Audra leads their audience on a stirring and shimmering journey through a landscape of innocence and its loss. Excitement clashes with sorrow, joy with fear, creating a dark, seductive and mesmerizing experience. Between Bret's deep, sexy, hypnotizing vocals and Bart's melodic and groove bending guitars, this album takes you through a musical spiral of mood altering gothic architecture. ''Going To The Theatre'' contains a perfect mixture of rough rocking tracks and emotional ballads. Favourites include the wonderful ''All Ghosts Spend Their Time Alone,'' which has lovely lyrics. ''Midnight Moon Swing'' or ''A Walk in the woods'' are purest Gothic Rock songs. ''Don�t End This Time'' seems to bet the perfect mixture of Peter Murphy-like vocals and late 80's 4AD Guitar sound, ''Cabaret Fortune Teller'' is a driving , powerful track with slanting Synthie effects. Every single song makes this a very many faceted album. Furthermore, the artwork of ''Going To The Theatre'' is simply wonderful. Heartfelt music is a rarity...

Released 29th April 2002. Projekt.


Diary Of Dreams - Freak Perfume (limited first-run)

DIARY OF DREAMS surely belong to the small group of truly exceptional bands who take their inspiration from all different sorts of styles - and whose fanbase, accordingly, is just as diverse. Because they do not shy away from using this enormous variety of styles and elements, their sound is always authentic, never clich� - a rich source of emotion their listeners can directly identify with. Intense vocals are combined with lush instrumentation and often reach a soundtrack like quality, leaving each listener to dream up his own visuals to go with the music. For 12 years, DIARY OF DREAMS have proven their seminal status as a cult band with every record they released. Their popularity has constantly grown without ever diluting their creativity, their innovative spirit or their unmistakable personality. ''Freak Perfume'' is an intense testimony of where the band now stands, the statement of a figurehead in the eye of the storm while his life swirls around him like a carrousel. Three years have passed since the last album, ''One Of 18 Angels'' was released to worldwide acclaim. Late 2001, DIARY OF DREAMS surprised us all with their first MCD ever: ''O'Brother Of Sleep'' didn't just please their old fans, it also went straight to Number 1 in the German Alternative Chart. March 2002 saw the release of their second and last precursor to the new album. ''AmoK'' was again well received by fans and critics alike. Since the release of the last album, DIARY OF DREAMS have been on tour twice and played a great number of festivals, proving once again their brilliance and power as a live band. They appeared on dozens of compilations, spreading their fame even further and reaching more and more curious ears. But now it's time to celebrate the record we have been waiting for, and that much is certain: With ''Freak Perfume'', DIARY OF DREAMS have created another seminal album. Here, the energy and power of their first recordings blend brilliantly with the maturity and understanding they've now gained. The effortless and elegant production transports the strikingly melancholic and poetic atmosphere. On ''Freak Perfume'', you will find potential club stormers and ballads alike, all embedded in the typically powerful, almost classical DIARY OF DREAMS sound. ''Freak Perfume'' is probably the most extensive and diverse album Adrian Hates ever created, his writing reaching new depths and new insights. There's no room for superficiality - emotion is what counts. For every fan a long awaited must, for all others an ideal opportunity to have a closer look at this band. First run Limited Edition of the Brand new album comes in a digipack with bonus tracks !! Please PRE-ORDER QUICKLY !!

Released 3rd June 2002. Accession.


Dryft - Cell

CD. Dryft...is the side project by Cadoo of GRIDLOCK! During the recording of Gridlock's ''Further'' both Cadoo and Mike Wells were listening to and interjecting drum and bass into their music. At that time Cadoo was almost fanatical about the harder, moodier tech-step that was being created by producers like Panacea, Digital, and Dom and Roland. Out of this love for drum and bass came the ''Enzyme'' remix on Further. After completing the remix he decided to try some tracks of his own in this new style. The track ''Avatar'' was the first of those tracks, a combination of sub-bass and atmospheric synths. It's from a section of that track, that has a floating feeling, came the name Dryft. Now Dryft finds it's home [] and is set to inject the electronic music world with this unique blend of D & B. Please beware.

Released 29th April 2002 Unit Records


Lusine ICL - Iron City

Lusine Icl on his fourth album, ''Iron City'', explores a unique blend of lush electronics, dance floor rhythms and ambient interludes that are sure to please both the discriminating music collector and DJs looking for the next big thing. ''Iron City'' commutes the listener through a wide range of terrain. Detroit techno, Jazz, laid back Groove, experimental electronics and ambient landscapes are all part of the landscape. It is as varied as any large city, and as enjoyable as any fantastic voyage.

Released 20th May 2002 Hymen

Freaky Trigger - 102 Beats

Feaky Trigger - 102 Beats Part 1 is now complete, Part 2 will in be in June.

What do you get if you ask Freaky Trigger readers to write 102 words about "a record people should hear"? You get this: 72 records ranging from Billboard to Bollywood, from triple CD sets to ringtones, from the forties to the noughties, all summed up bitesize by an equally varied bunch of pop enthusiasts. Some of these people, some of these records, you might already know - others will be new. If one of the records talked about here intrigues you, why not check it out and come back here in June for Part II of this feature - where each of the writers here listens to someone else's choice, and squeezes their opinion on it into - yes - 102 words.


Unfortunately I never got round to doing an entry and also knowing my luck I thought I would probably end up be with something to review that I would not have liked such as twee indie pop pap or alt.country authentic snoresville.

However this set of features is well worth exploring, here is ten for starters:

Disco Inferno - DI Go Pop - Contributor: Richard Tunnicliffe

Hardfloor - "Acperience" - Contributor: Jim Eaton-Terry

Lift To Experience - "These Are The Days" - Contributor: David Howie

Darla - Coming Soon

Darla - Coming Soon has been updated, including:

YUME BITSU - The Golden Vessyl of Sound...

K
CD Version due June 4th

Sonically, Yume Bitsu has always been a hard band to pin down. Traversing across celestial landscapes imbued with drifting, lilting sheets of ambient guitars, keyboard driven astral landscapes, in-your-face wall of fuzz and occasional harmonious soaring voice, Yume Bitsu effortlessly shift from one end of the psychedelic musical spectrum to the other, with surprisingly successful effect. Yume Bitsu�s process of creation, as it has developed over the last 7 years, is as intriguing as the music it creates. They claim that they play from �the vessyl,� a channel of energy whose output is greater than that of the individual members combined. Accordingly, their approach to creating sound has been more uniform than their output ever has. Nowhere in their ever-growing catalog is that more apparent than on their remarkable fourth full-length, The Golden Vessyl of Sound.Familiar and signature drone-and-drift textures are present, but The Golden Vessyl of Sound finds Yume Bitsu expanding their compositional palette to experiment along a broader array of textures, with decidedly ample sonic rewards. A random spore sample reveals a variety of audio astral planes, reminiscent of such divergent artists as Cluster, Can, Ash Ra Temple, Klaus Schulze, In a Silent Way-era Miles Davis, Slowdive, Windy and Carl, and Landing. Decorate it all with an elaborately lyrical allegory-as-soundtrack to a fantastical story the band wrote about Dryystn, a mythical city and its inhabitants, and you have yourself one truly epic album set to re-map the human cerebellum unto a higher plane of consciousness. If that isn�t enough, Yume Bitsu officially announce the creation of THE VESSYL COLLECTIVE, a loose-knit group of like-minded, psychedelically tinged bands that span the continental United States. The collective includes such rising ambient-rock groups as the quiet-storm drift and drone quartet Landing, the fuzz-smear improv powerhouse Surface of Eceon, and neo-Electronic �Head� Music pioneer Alex Bundy (a.k.a. Planetarium Music). As stewards of this shimmering inner-spaceship, founding members Yume Bitsu find themselves equipped to lead American space-rock into the 21st century. The 2xLP format contains a bonus, side-long live set not featured on the forthcoming CD (out June 4).

Tuxedomoon Related Reissues:

BLAINE REININGER - Instrumentals

LTM (UK)
COMING 6/24/02

15 tracks. Blaine Reininger is one of the creative mainsprings behind the cult left-field band Tuxedomoon. As a solo artist he has recorded some eight solo albums, including Broken Fingers (1982), Night Air (1984), Instrumentals (1989) and Radio Moscow (1995). Most have appeared on the Crepuscule label. Blaine was born in Colorado in 1953, and currently divides his time between Italy and Greece. Instrumentals is a charming collection of tracks recorded between 1982 and 1991, some in collaboration with artists such as Steven Brown, Vini Reilly/Durutti Column, Wim Mertens and Luc Van Acker, but almost always with Blaine�s trademark violin to the fore. The set also includes three full orchestrations of Ghost Sonata material performed by the Flemish Chamber Orchestra of Brussels in 1983. Stand-out tracks include La Douleur, The Sea Wall, Contempt, Side Wind and Music #2. TUXEDOMOON formed in San Francisco in 1977 around the nucleus of Steven Brown, Blaine Reininger and Peter Principle. Following releases on the Residents� Ralph label, the band relocated to Europe in 1981. Their dozen-odd albums include the classics Half Mute, Desire, Ghost Sonata and Holy Wars. In 2000 the group toured Half Mute in Europe to mark its re-release on the Gigolo International label. Current projects include European dates in summer 2002, and a new studio album later in the year. Instrumentals is digitally remastered with extensive sleevenotes. Night Air (LTMCD 2339) is also now available on CD. Reviews: �Instrumentals is a miscellany of short pieces that reflect the spirit of his musical ideas through the years. It�s a feast of appetizers, but that doesn�t make them any less beautiful or haunting in their variety� (Option, 1991); �Runs smoothly from the sentimental to the experimental - a polished and intriguing exploration of one man�s many-faceted work� (USA Press, 1991).

Most appeared on the Crepuscule label. Blaine was born in Colorado in 1953, and currently divides his time between Italy and Greece. Night Air is his superlative 1984 album written and recorded with former Sleepers and Tuxedomoon guitar wizard Michael Belfer and mixed by Gareth Jones (Depeche Mode/Nick Cave). Stand-out tracks include Mystery & Confusion, Birthday Song, L�entr�e de l�hierophante and the evocative title track, as well as the six bonus cuts which include Windy Outside and the magnificent Crash by Tuxedomoon, the latter in two versions, one remixed by The Residents. TUXEDOMOON formed in San Francisco in 1977 around the nucleus of Steven Brown, Blaine Reininger and Peter Principle. Following releases on the Residents� Ralph label, the band relocated to Europe in 1981. Their dozen-odd albums include the classics Half Mute, Desire, Ghost Sonata and Holy Wars.

Current projects include European dates in summer 2002, and a new studio album later in the year. Night Air is digitally remastered and has extensive sleevenotes. Reviews: �A major album � highly atmospheric, steeped in mist and melancholy, and redolent of Dashiel Hammett and Tom Waits, or even Brian Eno with a latino croon� (Libre Belgique, 9/84); �Night Air seeks to combine modern classicism with a new approach to atmospheric chanson. Reininger is way ahead of his time� (Rock This Town, 6/84); �Crash is a rare and marvellous

STEVEN BROWN - Decade (Best Of)

LTM (UK)
COMING 6/24/02

21 tracks. Steven Brown is one of the creative mainsprings behind the cult left-field band Tuxedomoon.

In 2000 the group toured the seminal Half Mute album in Europe to mark its re-release on the DJ Gigolo International label. Current projects include a Russian-only live album, European dates in summer 2002, and a new studio album for release later in the year. Decade (Best Of) has been digitally remastered and features extensive sleevenotes. Reviews: �Brown has emerged as a leading force of the new music, which rejects the conventional separation of pop, classical and avant garde music � forceful and subversive� (Vox, 9/91); �There are sublime moments on Music for Solo Piano, which never panders to easy-listening� (Melody Maker, 7/88).

Outburn:
Outburn Magazine is the leader of the subversive and post-alternative music revolution that covers many diverse genres, including rock, electronic, metal, industrial, techno, IDM, house, gothic, atmospheric, experimental, and more.

Details of the new edition of Outburn: OUTBURN #18 / May 2002

I would say Outburn is closest in spirit/ coverage/ content to the type of ideal music magazine that I would like to see in Britain on a fortnightly basis - to take on the NME. However Outburn is a US magazine that has 3 editions per Year: one in January, then May, then September.

COVER STORY

LUKE SLATER: If you had spent nearly a decade establishing yourself as one of the preeminent creators of cutting edge techno and electronic music, the last thing you would want to do is pick up a vocalist and start writing love songs, right? Not if you're Luke Slater. Outburn sits down with Luke Slater in the Manhattan offices of Mute for an in-depth discussion of Slater's latest release Alright on Top, his roller skating adventures, and his latest finds on eBay. Photographs by Paule Saviano.

FEATURED INTERVIEWS WITH

COAL CHAMBER: As the leaders of the modern metal scene, Coal Chamber's vocalist Dez Fafara phones in from the road to shine some light on the hard hitting and head banging Dark Days,

RASPUTINA: Founding member, lead vocalist, and musical directress, Melora Creager, shares some insights into the "little upside down twilight cello fantasy world" of the trio's Cabin Fever!.

DOWN: Rex Brown and Kirk Windstein show some Southern hospitality and answer some prying questions about the 28 days, 15 songs, and $6000 worth of booze it took to record the sludge rock of Down II.

CARL COX: Legendary house and techno DJ, Carl Cox, goes Global and gives a revealing preview to his upcoming and much anticipated artist album in a candid interview.

QUARASHI: The techno, rock, and rap of Iceland's Quarashi is now invading American soil, as Solvi Blondal foots the international call and explains how Quarashi got to be where they are today.

LUNATIC CALM: Fusing hard techno with rock 'n' roll, Howie Saunders reveals the inner workings, inspirations, and aggravations of Lunatic Calm's latest release, Breaking Point, while on a recent trip to the US.

CRANES: Gracefully gliding into an otherworldly splendor on their latest release, Future Songs, vocalist Alison Shaw helps fill in the blanks of the Cranes' last five years and explains why their future's so bright.

VNV NATION: Sounding the battle cry to reject nihilism with an addictive brand of synthpop tinged EBM, frontman Ronan Harris looks into VNV Nation's past and examines our future.

KMFDM: Eighteen years and eleven albums later, Sascha Konietzko and crew are back on the Attack with "the most vital, valid, and leading into the future KMFDM album to date."

BLACK TAPE FOR A BLUE GIRL: Sam Rosenthal delves into the neoclassical and ethereal essence of The Scavenger Bride, the latest at Projekt, and some of his recent personal life changes.

Terrorizer - May - Issue 99

Details of the new edition of Terrorizer with Danzig on the front cover. Strange choice if you ask me, as I always found Danzig to much of clown RAWKist - remember his big rock single in 1988 - Mother .

Surely a better front choice would have been Red Harvest

RED HARVEST The Power And The Glory

A decade on from their debut album 'Nomindsland', Norway's Red Harvest are still raging against the dying of the light. With the release of the follow-up to 2000's landmark 'Cold Dark Matter', the imperiously-titled , 'Sick Transit Gloria Mundi', that light has become eerier, more penetrating and more petrifying than ever, rendering tags such as 'industrial' and 'black metal' redundant in the process. Nathan T Birk tracked down guitarist/songwriter Kjetil Eggum to discuss men vs machines, the apocalypse, and why Red Harvest refuse to wear Emperor's new clothes...

"The goal of Red Harvest has always been to move on and be innovative and creative and to never stand still. If you were supposed to play black metal or rock'n'roll or whatever, you have to stick to those terms. I can do whatever I want with Red Harvest." - Kjetil Eggum makes a bid for freedom

Sensual Physics - Offene Schleifen

Another Source Records [from Germany] release on April 29th in The UK Sensual Physics - Offene Schleifen - Germanic deep techno sounds.

J�rg Schuster aka Sensual Physics' debut from Dortmund, Germany.
Alright! Admittedly, what you might not call a big name?! But in the ten years of releasing Source Records,
we have never lost sight of our initial motivation - to put out the music we love and keep our minds open for new input.
We decided it would be most appropriate if we didn't release another "the best of ten years of..."
and instead stick to our philosophy by presenting a new relative of the Source Records family.

Sensual Physics' "Offene Schleifen" is moody and deep techno music.
Fashionable sub genre names do not apply in his case. Just Techno. Very positive.
Suitable for the club, "four to the floor" backed tracks - grooving and fluid, bright and warm.
Crackles, chords, dubs and solid grooves.
In Sensual Physics' world, the dance floor and the living room are door to door,
Detroit is just around the corner and the essence of techno shines throughout.

Lowtec - Secret Corner

Source Records next release Lowtec - Secret Corner - microhouse sounds from Germany. [UK release April 29th]

Jens Kuhn aka Lowtec hardly needs introduction.
Releases for Playhouse, USM, Science City and his own label Out to lunch
have made him a notable fixture in the techno and house scene.

As a member of the "System 360" collective he released the "Adaptive Pattern Recognizer EP"
("vital release", Muzik, UK 1995) and the album "Active Technologies" (1998) on Source Records.

On Secret Corner we present 10 unreleased tracks plus (cd only) "Mitre Peak" previously released
on the like named 12'' on Out to lunch.
Producing the stomping minimal house track "City Limits" Jens Kuhn was joined
by David Rollmann aka even tuell.

"Secret Corner" reflects the roots of house and techno
but also makes its very own statement.

Deep, funky and moody minimal house and techno tracks... flowing grooves... smooth stings...

Evolving, mutating slowly but carefully, constantly in motion,
the tracks minimal arrangements leave wide spaces for subtle shifts and alterations.
Like molecules in constant motion unite to build substance,
Lowtecs sound unite to form tracks that despite their repetive character,
draw their tension from permanent mutation.

Themilkfactory - May Reviews

Once again the excellent Themilkfactory delivers a fine selection of album reviews: The summaries presented below are from a Milkfactory e-mail, to see the full reviews please visit their website.

[Good to see Murcof - Martes get a top 5 Star review - as they are one of my tips for 2002 - a unique contemporary classical hybrid electronic sound - this is going to be one of the big cult underground electronic albums of the year]


Murcof - Martes

After a beautiful first EP released earlier this year, Mexican
musician Fernando Corona, aka Murcof, offers with Martes a brilliant
cinematic take on electronic music. Essential.



Broadway Project - Compassion

Compassion was originally released early last year on the excellent
Memphis Industries label, and after having been unavailable for a
while, the label is now re-releasing the album with an additional CD
featuring rare and unreleased tracks. Described by Jockey Slut
as 'Tom Waits duetting with Portishead and produced by Boards Of
Canada', Compassion is already an absolute classic.



Decal - 404 Not Found

With their third album, Irish duo Decal move away from their classic
Detroit techno sound to concentrate on more intimate structures,
built around a mix of acoustic and electronic sounds.



Etienne De Crecy - Tempovision Remixes

Without Etienne De Crecy, the French electronic scene would without
any doubt be radically different. Pioneering the French Touch sound
with Motorbass or by producing Air's first single, Etienne De Crecy
finally brought his first album a couple of years ago. This remix
project is as excellent as the original.



Monolight - Free Music

Since his days as a member of pop combo Fra Lippo Lippi, Rune
Grammofon's label boss Rune Kristoffersen has moved to more
experimental territories. With this new album, he explores the
possibilities of improvisation with electronic music and produces a
piece of work where fragility is a centrepiece.



Mum - Finally We Are No One

With this follow up to the excellent Yesterday Was Dramatic - Today
Is OK, released a couple of years ago, Icelandic quartet M�m
continue their exploration of rich soundscapes and impressive
atmospheres.



Nautilis- Are You An Axolotl?

Are You An Axolotl? is the first album by Texan musician Skyler
McGlothlin. On this record, he goes from heavy abstract hip-hop,
dirty electro funk and Boards Of Canada-like dreamy electronica.
Despite its diversity, it is a very consistent record, and an
extremely interesting debut.



Sonogram - Arrival Lounge

Second album for Simulacra's boss Todd Gautreau's Sonogram project.
With Arrival Lounge, he moves away from the contemplative ambient
sound of his Tear Ceremony project to explore more openly atmospheric
territories.



Spunk - Filtered Through Friends

Following the release of their first album a couple of years ago on
Norwegian label Rune Grammofon comes this remix album featuring some
of the most important names of the Scandinavian electronic scene. The
quartet presented on The Only Thing I Know Is That It Isn't A
Vacuum Cleaner a very uncompromising sound, and these thirteen
reworkings provide very different angles on the five originals.



Rubin Steiner - Wunderbar Drei

Third album by France's latest darling. Rubin Steiner is Frederick
Landier, and, after releasing a series of ultra rare 12", a first
album, now out of print, and a second, which has just been made
available again, he now offers his third and most exiting record.



The Streets - Original Pirate Material

Cutting lyrics and and street attitude, The Streets take UK Garage to
new heights, bringing at long last some wit and subtility to the
genre. Day in the life of a geezer, Original Pirate Material is
simply brilliant.

Autumnblaze - Mute Boy Sad Girl

Prophecy

Whereas the Autumnblaze debut, D�mmerElbenTrag�die, is characterised by its mystical, metallic eruptions, this album contains many diverse expressions that mark a new passionate artwork of sound. This is not astonishing at all, for those who know Markus� love for music (perceptible in The nature of music), and of course Bleak, a preceding album, full of emotions... Trip hop beats, rock outbursts, melancholic pop-melodies; comforting warmth, bleak hopelessness and dream-like, sumptuous clouds of atmosphere all these are criteria that label Mute boy Sad girl, an album, which needs to be experienced. An album which wants to touch deeply and is able to do so. Just like the direct, honest and personal lyrics imply, Mute boy Sad girl seems to be tempting, candid and catchy at first, but unveils, under its most beautiful layers of sounds, barbs formed by pure passion. A passion, which clearly reveals the emotions, thoughts and souls of the two artists hiding behind Autumnblaze.


Nebelnest - Nova Express

Cunieform

NeBelNeST are one of the most adventurous and energetic young bands to emerge on the international post-rock / avant-progressive scene in recent years. The young French band is noted for its dark symphonic rock music influenced by King Crimson, Shylock and Univers Zero/Present, laced with psychedelia and improvisation, and played with a riveting level of energy and intensity derived from the hardcore and noise scenes. In the words of the Chicago Tribune: "these French sound sculptors chisel out large-scale instrumentals that pair up the weird sonics and improvisational bent of mid-period King Crimson with a Gong-like space fusion ambience[They] borrow bits and pieces of old school art rock and arrange them into a singular sound awash in dissonance and strangely mutated guitar/keyboard tones." NeBeLNeST�s second CD, is their first release on Cuneiform. It is also their first produced by Bob Drake, a musician and producer who has produced CDs by the 5uu�s and Thinking Plague, and has recorded solo and other CDs for the ReR label. Drake�s distinctive production techniques are a perfect match for NeBeLNeST, emphasizing and augmenting the wide dynamic range of the band�s dark, mesmerizing sound.


Rovo - Tonic 2001

Tzadik

Some of the very best musicians in japan, veterans of bands such as the boredoms, bondage fruits, bazooka joe, dub sub, demi semi quaver and omoide hatoba come together in rovo, a virtuosic trance-rock group based in tokyo. This dynamic two cd set collects the best of their legendary two night run at new york city's premiere new music club tonic. Beautifully recorded and impeccably mixed by rovo mastermind katsui yuji in japan, tonic 2001 captures the firey brilliance of this dazzling band like no studio recording ever could. Two special mix translations by bill laswell are included as bonus tracks. Ecstatic music for listeners and dancers alike.file under: rock/avant garde, definately for fans of the acid mothers temple genre, and also for fans of early tortoise. .


Pennyblackmusic.com - Week After Next

3rd And The Mortal - Memoirs

Voices Of Wonder

Formed in 1992, Norway's The 3rd And The Mortal's destiny lay not in the burgeoning early Black Metal scene of the time, but in a more experimental etheral direction. Having recorded several albums (all for Voices Of Wonder) this is their long awaited follow-up to 1997 opus 'In The Room'. Musically the band play dark, atmospheric songs that mix both analogue and digitally programmed sounds, innovative percussion, epic guitars, mellow strings and even elements of dub bass. Already garning excellent press across Europe 'Memoirs' has become a masterpiece of atmospheric, melancholic musique noir. For fans of Ulver.


Aelters - Volube It

Tigerbeat

*the long-awaited follow-up to aelters� sold out solo debut on ski-pp �el frustrator,� sure to be a top seller with the kids as aelters works on new material for mouse on mars�s label soniq french countryman lost in a northern city called lille, aelters steps out of legendary lo-fi laptop quartet dat politics (a-muzik ,fatcat, skipp, digital narcis , chicks on speed rec) to release this solid solo ep of charming melodic laptop antics, instead of hanging the usual mobile of warm, pulsing tones above our heads, aelters cuts in the cries of colicky babies and overwrought divas, the roar of runaway motorbikes and uncontrollable applause, for songs that strike the harpsichord of memories in our minds as the sounds of the adult world intrude upon the garden of electronic delights. Much a part of the worldwide anti-scene of artists like mouse on mars, fx randomiz, felix kubin, chicks on speed, goodiepal, scratch pet land,blectum from blechdom,mego, wobbly, kid606, fennesz and aphex twin yet still completely off in his own cheerily twisted sound world.


Arcturus - Sham Mirrors

Ad Astra

Norwegian legends Arcturus are back with the long overdue & highly anticipated follow-up to 'La Masquerade Infernale', their genre-pushing debut opus on Music For Nations released way back in 1997. In the five years that have passed since that release the two core members of Arcturus have been busy working on several projects of their own. Trickster G has pushed his band ULVER from Black Metal overlords toward an almost complete dark ambient/electronica transformation, as well as founding his own label Jester Records. Hellhammer on the other hand has played drums for none other than MAYHEM, THE KOVENANT and other major metal acts. Even the mighty Ihsahn of EMPEROR appears as guest vocalist on several tracks. The end result?, well lets just say that 'The Sham Mirrors' is a darkly tinged marriage of classic symphonic Black Metal and Progressive Rock.

Pennyblackmusic.com - Forthcoming Releases has been updated, including these releases:


Beat Happening - Crashing Through

K Records
Released on 13/05/02

Since their inception in 1983, the legendary pop rocking combo from olympia, called beat happenning have been the inhabitants of an imperfect world, one that is stripped down and codified with personal politics and emotional trauma. One of the truly seminal bands of the post punk era, beat happening�s influence on the world of minimal music, punk and pop has been massive, virtually establishing the international pop underground as its pioneering passport holders. K announces the retrospective compendium of their entire oeuvre; a seven cd box set, which includes all five of the beat happening albums (beat happening, jamboree, black candy, dreamy, you turn me on) and a sixth album (music to climb apple the apple tree by) of songs fro msingles and compilations, including the long out of print beat happening/screaming trees collaborative 12�. All of the packaging for the cds has been redesigned as beautiful six panel digipak foldouts to include additional photos, of the band. An exclusive seventh cd/rom features live and video material, live in london, live in records shops, live in olympia, and more. The seven cds are accompanied by a deluxe 96 page book written by lois maffeo that tells thee story of beat happenning through the words of the band members and their contemporaries. Limited to 5000 worldwide.
.

Blaubac - Perdurance

Moth Records
Released on 04/06/02

Whereas �wind chill� displayed a delicious heart of darkness, �perdurance� radiates a beautiful, energetic warmth. Still characteristically and unmistakably blaubac: dynamic and unique, detailed and beat-driven electronica. Guest vocalists and instrumentalists further broaden the sound, their contributions precisely woven into each infectious composition. The result is awesome. A grand claim perhaps, but this is progtronica at its best. Previous work has proven to have a longevity and appeal, as fans of boards of canada, squarepusher, autechre, aphex twin and radiohead even, find their way to blaubac. But is it possible to be more unique? �perdurance� says, �yes � indefinitely.�


Cinematic Orchestra - Everyday

Ninja Tune
Released on 13/05/02

Already tipped as an album of the year by many journalists, this album is very special -"Lush, panoramic, emotionally searing yet utterly becalming" Jockey Slut. At a time when the chill out thing substitutes blandness for maturity and mainstream dance music seems to be searching for its dummy again, J. Swinscoe�s Cinematic Orchestra return to blow all your expectations with a follow-up to �Motion�, which is deeper than the ocean, packing a tremendous emotional punch, by turns mournful and celebratory and with a rigour that is so often lacking in contemporary cut and paste . Across seven sweeping, dramatic tracks, the group take you on a journey through classic soul, jazz, choral pieces, sinking horn riffs, throbbing harp b-lines, minimalism and more. With guests of the calibre of Fontella Bass and Roots Manuva, you know that you�re in for something special .Playing Essential, Homelands, Big Chill etc along with club tour. Excellent guaranteed.


Early Day Miners - Let Us Garlands Bring

Secretly Canadian
Released on 13/05/02

From the softest, most gentle campfire songs t othe stringed wall of sound rock ensemble, let us garlands bring glides easily. Fans of seminal slo-core bands like codeine, low, etc will like edm for their tempered beauty and composure, while lovers of my bloody valentine, mid period giant sand and neil young will love the gorgeous distorted soundscapes/ landscapes the album contains. The 2lp version contains a bonus track.


Fucking Champs - V

Drag City
Released on 20/05/02

V offers more silver shards of the fucking champs�s future pop-instrumental mesh! Following a massive european and uk tour last year, the champs went back to the states and recorded this, an epic and monumentous slab of demented riffing guitar, pounding rhythms and incessant time changes, this is gore (the band) goes jazz, highly technical, highly infectious. Metallic in structure, brutallic in execution, this is the new vehicle for nation of ulysses� tim green (a pretty in-demand producer too!)


Oxes - Oxxxes

Monitor
Released on 21/05/02

Confrontational call it what you want,nobody cares.what matters is that this band is making some of the best,most influential,groundbreaking music available today ,"oxxxes" proves that.this joyous piece of ear candy takes you from "wanting to punch your best friend" anger, to "shaking your bottom, baltimore dance club style"!!! Done completely with only two guitars and one drum set.recorded by bob weston (shellac).finally a band to bring back the early days of bastro, don caballero, rapeman and bitch magnet,throw in some trans am quirkiness some champs riffing


Rise, The - Signal To Noise

Ferret Music
Released on 13/05/02

From the state of Texas comes a new noise. Rules and limitations are ignored and genres well and truly trampled in the quest for the New. Hardcore, after all, should be the sound of Revolution, and revolution takes many shapes and forms. Their sound is rooted in Punk, Metal, Indie Rock, Emo, Electronica etc., and despite their tender age and experience they have cut and cleared their own path, with the eye firmly planted on the future. If you want a precedent: put them in the lineage of AT THE DRIVE IN, REFUSED, MINUS & ATARI TEENAGE RIOT, because they are moving things forward. Believe.


Seven Sages Of Mesopotamia - Tales From The Black Magheddo

Htz Records
Released on 13/05/02

The Seven Sages Of Mesopotamia is Andy Dien from Manchester. His alter ego BLACK FACTION focuses on breakbeat & bass (released records on SoleilMoon). Close to Muslimgauze Dieg incorporates a strong Middle Eastern vibe on the start of this album (he's presently preparing a tribute album with Rapoon to Bryn Jones). "Tales From The Black Magheddo�" is an album of ambient - electronica followed by long minimal -techno variations, similar in style to Mille Plateaux productions but will also appeal to fans of Skam & Plug Research labels


Ten Benson - Satan Kidney Pie

Artrocker
Released on 20/05/02

Ten Benson are a thundering, sprawling, joyous, genius, near mess of heavy rock, country, swamp blues and punk, a loose amalgamation of AC/DC, Thin Lizzy & Johnny Cash bound together with the gaffa of wry humour and the determination to have a bloody great time." Time Out "Ten Benson are Britains best-kept secret. Time to let their seedy skeletons dance out of the closet" NME They're back. And not a moment too soon. The godfathers of the "21 Century riff", Ten Benson released on Artrocker Records a limited 7", double A-sided single, 'One Way Ticket/The Loozin Line' which oozed with the now familiar Benson melange of stomping 'axe-work', dead �pan/serious vocals and, as always an insidious, BASTARD of a tune. This time Ten Benson's insouciant disregard for convention has actually found them come full circle as the unheralded evil uncles of the 'new rock and roll'. Released in 2000, Ten Benson�s debut 'hiss' set the critics reeling with Mojo declaring 'Hiss is an obscene feast of dirty, bastard riffage whose manifesto is basically filth, squalor and bad, bad men. A pretty much irresistible package'. However, perhaps it was the NME who understood best� 'Hiss' is a full stop in history; an unrepeatable assault on the evil empire of pop. In it's singular universe it is something nearing perfection.'

Resonance 104.4 FM

Resonance 104.4 FM is a project organized and resourced by the London Musicians' Collective

Resonance104.4 FM has a legal restricted area radio license for Central London in the month of May to play leftfield/electronic/experimental/ avant garde/ free jazz & Improv music. But will the frequency extend to my area of North London? - I doubt it - however it will be webstreamed.

This site, like the station itself, is under construction: full listings of our May broadcast schedule will be posted here on Saturday 27th April 2002.

Resonance 104.4 FM is London's first radio art station, brought to you by London Musicians' Collective. It starts broadcasting from May 1st 2002 at 5 pm Expect the unexpected from what New York's Village Voice calls the "Best Radio station in the world". Resonance 104.4 FM is a radio station with no play lists, no smarmy DJs or pompous pundits; a radical alternative to the universal formulae of mainstream broadcasting. Programmes made by artists who represent the diversity of London's arts scene, including Savage Pencil, Gavin Turk, Matthew Glammore, Caroline Kraabel and countless others.

Resonance 104.4 FM promises to bring a multitude of experimental sound, new music, radio art and interaction to the capital's airwaves. Resonance 104.4 FM will broadcast from the heart of London and on the web at www.resonancefm.com, where you can check out full programme listings.

On air between 5 pm and 1 am daily, and noon till 1 am at weekends, Resonance104.4 FM is the only station of its kind in the UK providing access radio for the London arts community.

"Imagine a radio station like no other. A radio station that makes public those artworks that have no place in traditional broadcasting. A radio station that is an archive of the new, the undiscovered, the forgotten, the impossible. That is an invisible gallery, a virtual arts centre whose location is at once local, global and timeless. And that is itself a work of art. Imagine a radio station that responds rapidly to new initiatives, has time to draw breath and reflect. A laboratory for experimentation, that by virtue of its uniqueness brings into being a new audience of listeners and creators. All this and more, Resonance 104.4 FM aims to make London's airwaves available to the widest possible range of practitioners of contemporary art."

Hundred Reasons - No thanks to the Bog Standard Brit Rock aimed at the Yoof of today !

Oh dear look who is on the front of the NME this week - it's Hundred Reasons the lead singer that looks like a Kitchen Mop - all sweaty jumping around like a performing music clown - going through the rock cliches, displaying emotion that would score A+ on drama but the music comes in at D.

The more I hear this band on the radio - the more gormless they get, as one DR C on ILM discussion board mentioned - they sound like a youth club band playing at grunge badly. 18 Months ago these clowns were namedropped by certain journalists/ magazines as the future of British rock music - I made a mental note of the name. When I actually got to hear them on the radio last year - they were awful - all lumpen singalong post grunge crap. One could say that Hundred Reasons are the British equivalent of the orrible Jimmy Eat World, maybe Hundred Reasons are the successors to the Bush throne - all singalong splutter trad modern rock wrapped up in safe cliched emotion with a thick lumpen lame rock production. There signed to a major record label Columbia - so they have all the marketing/press/promotion/plugger budget push to succeed commercially.

Poor NME does seem to have no quality control when hyping new British rock bands this year - first Lostprophets lite fake American rock sound, then The Cooper Temple Clause (imagine the worst of Oasis with Amps and guitars turned up to max - again gormless singalong loud rock with big choruses belted out with gusto - but the overall effect is this band are overblown, hollow and have no substance) - if you want to read a cringe embarrassing article on this band - pick up the NME this week - to see what the British Yoof think ..personally I blame all these naff Brit-Rock bands on Radio 1 DJ Steve Lamacq. Then there was Vex Red - that flopped after their much pre hyped album - it was rather average plain modern rock - from the tracks I heard.

It seems all these bands are aimed at a core 15 - 20 demographic - maybe because much of this age group - have a limited frame of reference - that they are easily pleased by lowest common denominator yet high marketed bog standard contemporary Brit-rock - "it's got guitars it is not like the chart pop rubbish - it's proper music made with guitars".. that sells - all these bands have crossover top 40 singles.

If you compare these risible bands to the benchmark standard of Joy Division/ Bark Psychosis/ Killing Joke / Arkane/ The Chameleons/Earthtone 9 - these Brit rock bands of 2002 don't even register 1 out of 10 on the creativity richter scale.

What is needed is a real British revolution - something that will match ..Joy Division, Bark Psychosis on Scum, Killing Joke on Extremities.., The Cure on Pornography, The Jesus and Mary Chain on Psychocandy.

The only new intense British rock band I can think of that has the potential to deliver something exceptional with a debut album is SikTh - hopefully they will release it before 2002 is out. Unlike their contemporaries - Sikth aspire they have sonic ambition.

Tim Bowness / Peter Chilvers - California, Norfolk

Tim Bowness / Peter Chilvers - California, Norfolk - album has now been released exclusively via BurningShed:

Something of an extension of the duo's work as part of Samuel Smiles and a
continuation of the ideas explored on 'Flame' (the Barbieri/Bowness album
from 1994), 'California, Norfolk' is the debut release from Tim Bowness
(No-Man) and Peter Chilvers (Alias Grace).

Combining dark, electronic textures and found sounds with lean, intense
compositions and poignant lyrics, the album's highly original synthesis of
singer-songwriter intimacy and imaginative production values echoes aspects
of the pioneering work of Blue Nile, Randy Newman, Steve Reich, Mark Eitzel
and late 70's Berlin-era Bowie/Eno.

>From the brooding, cinematic and orchestral sweep of 'Hostage' to the epic
ambition of 'Winter With You' through the bleak, icy overtones of 'Days Turn
Into Years', the album forms a suite of musical short stories awash with
domestic drudgery and fleeting hopes, misguided trust and thwarted dreams.

Ballad Electronica, Ambient Folk, or perhaps the soundtrack to the best film
you've never seen, 'California, Norfolk' is one of the most heartfelt and
haunting debuts of recent years.

This attractively presented CD release (NB not the typical Burning Shed CDR
format) will be available exclusively from www.burningshed.com until further
notice. Information and news is available from:
