And as for the sounds? fughettabaughtit....this right here is a cracking mix of superb UK noise playas. I guess it's just the very slight part of me that cares about being an English cat, but I'm always interested in noise and weirdness from this part of the world. I always find a slightly more excentric and odd edge to it which I love. Anyway, as you might assume from the range for artists, there is a vast mixture of styles going on, from noisy, colourful drones, acoustic scraping and minimal buzzing, all the way over to true harsh noise dynamism (Romance, I'm looking at you).
A thorough recommendation for anyone who wants to hear a lovely bit of recent UK noise history. Obligatory preferential shouts go out to the Romance, Usurper, Cheapmachines and Nackt Insecten offerings, though of course all the stuff here is top notch.
I've learned how to do RARs now so here it is in two parts for yo' listening pleasures.
