Format (FCD02) An exercise in proto-industrial noise dada; big twisted beats and classic lo-fi glitchery from the Sheffield school of noise.
Hints of Sylvian, Coil & Eno type abstract and dark melodies sit well among the abrasive electronic skullduggery reminiscent of Throbbing Gristle.
Lo-fi jazz loops cascade over sqeals of death on a rollercoast ride into hell and back while quirky minimalist hip-hop styles battle it out with a sophisticated Kraftwerk type ambience. Tons of analogue adrenalin fun as well as murder by volume which makes this an album to equate with a night out on cocaine with some Sheffield gangsters.
