"Recorded wasted in Sheffield, I asked a really drunk friend with hiccups to heckle me while I jammed. It turned out shit and had to edit it out. The laughter on the B side was due to me handing out flowers, blinding someone with washing up liquid, having a plastic dog piss on my head, etc." - Luke Poot
'"Human of Stow was recorded on a late model four track with one input. The four track was laying on the bedroom floor, and every now and then I would plug something into it, assign it to one of the tracks and record for a while. I did this until a c90 tape was full. Listening back I found the results very satisfying, and this way of doing things has influenced everything I've done since a great deal. When a number of instruments or sounds are grouped together they inevitably start to relate to each other (at least in the perception of the listener) and the fact that this seems to be the case even when the instruments are layered without any reference to the other parts makes it clear that the whole idea of form is pretty elastic" - Dan Melchior
"Tension and release, uninterrupted flux of multiplications and collisions, a very personal use of the instrument create unusual sonorities that run through astonishing territories. A labyrinthic, polymorphous, totally improvised descent to the most secret heart of music" - Stefano Arcangeli.
"Tape/fiddle maximus from the UK's Posset on this new tape from Tutore Burlato. Seams of Dictaphone jaxx are mined deep, urban field recordings are mangled beneath a tram and lame beats are ratified via 70's/80's Diva-scope. Intensive market research led Posset to adopt a more laissez-faire approach to sound on YHWH so expect a bit more space between the 'FFW sccreeee' and pinched-throat 'Gooch', Side Two, a medley of sorts, is sequenced like side two of Abbey Road but with more guff and fumble. At the thought of it Ringo trembles!"
'The mighty Grip Casino (Geograph Records, Laser Tag etc) dismisses for the moment his rock 'n' roll hero status to join Piermattei on this disorientating sound collage.

Grip Casino: guitar, saxophone, harmonica, accordion, flute, ocarina, xylophone, percussions, field recordings, electronics. Ezio Piermattei: voice, tapes, objects, viola, dictaphone, turntable, effetcs, guitar, trumpet, piano, field recordings, editing. Green cassette, edition of 50.
Two frenetic slow-burners from Yorkshire duo and label honchos Pascal Ansell (Panelak, Angurosakuson Records) & Jon Marshall (Roman Nose, Singing Knives Records). Jon's vocal, tharqa, harmonium & contact mic recordings are fed through 3,000 effects pedals, overlaid with outlandish synth explorations and mixed to joyful degradation. Demogwbl is a tribute to Bologna, using as a backbone a recording of the city's underground waste disposal system. Art & layout by Pascal Ansell. Limited to 50 copies.
