Drugs and Violence


In response to some rumours we've heard recently, yes, A&R men & women we would like to be taken out for free dinners and drinks...

We are a flexible bunch, into everyone getting involved, if it's your money you should have a say we think... Tell you what, i even watched MTV2's red button chart today and enjoyed at least 5 songs on it... We are capable of writing pop songs that would blow your mind too so we're definitely worth investing into for the future, if this hardcore malarky doesn't create a market in the mainstream alternative field then as i say, we're flexible...

A few requirements maybe contained within future contracts though, and to save some hassle i'll outline a few of the more important ones...

- The budget and resources must be made available for the writing and performing of our 'looped universe theory' song at the centre point of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.

- Help with starting the first ever franchised hardcore band, whereby we need never leave our homes to go on tour, we have auditioned counterparts all over the world "rocking the face off every motherfucker in the room" simultaneously. Meaning we don't get bored of playing the same songs, over and over and over again and develop unwanted drink and drug habits from the sheer boredom of our glamorous lifestyles.

- U2's old zoo tv stage gear.

- Someone to write our second album for us, we can't be bothered, we can give you the outline... we just need someone to 'fill in the gaps' like music and the actual words.

- Sign our unborn children into the contract too. They'll thank us when their older.

- Let us write an album (i guess number three this will be) about how everyone likes us but that's really shit because no-one really understands us really and we're all lonely because it's lonely being a star and we get sad and have had some problems but we're working through it but it's not all that great at the top you know it's a bit shit. And it'll be a bit awkward and not that good because we'll deliberately be trying to be something we're not and experimenting really badly and trying to show people we're not confined to this box you put us us in man, we're totally something else, get off my case, etc... BUT You will have to make it a hit record or else we'll complain that you're a shit label and did market us properly or advertise it well enough, you shits.

- During the 2 months that the people who liked us at your label are still employed there we get to decide what everyone wears.

there are more... we can discuss these at dinner.

New shirts available!

Hello, we have new shirts and bags available, check out the merch page for more info.

the world is my fuse

"When I was DJing, playing Can, Liquid Liquid, ESG, all that kind of stuff, I became kind of cool for a moment, which was a total anomaly. And when I heard other DJs playing similar music I was like: ‘Fuck! I’m out of a job! These are my records!’ But it was like someone had crept into my brain and said all these words that I hate. Did I make the records? Did I fuck! So, I started becoming horrified by my own attitude. I had this moment of glory though. People would use me to DJ just to get them cool. They’d be like ‘It’s the cool rock disco guy’ and this was really weird. And to be honest I was afraid that this new found coolness was going to go away. I was horrified by my own silliness. And then it became a wider thing about people who grip onto other people’s creations like they are their own. There is a lot of pathos in that character though because it’s born out of inadequacy and love."

Pinpoint the Death of Innocence

"That'll do..."

2 hours late for 730 club twice this week, it's not good.

The reason why i was late today is that last night we were finishing off the vocals for the split we are doing with The Mercury League. It got hot, it got tense, t's were pronounced, crisps were eaten, minds were lost but we got there, now all Dave has to do is listen to it over and over and over and over and over and over and over and overandoverandover again whilst doing things until it sounds perfect. And it will sound perfect.

The Mercury League are finishing off their side next week i believe... We then do other stuff and then magically we have 7" records in our laps, holy crap it's really that easy. These will now, we've decided, come out at these two shows...

7th of August at the Peel in Kingston
8th of August at the Engine Rooms in Brighton

These will be themed and this theming will be mandatory. no arguments. Fun will also be mandatory as we're leaving to go somewhere the very next day.

"Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you'd drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It's more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories. Ask no guarantees, ask for no security, there never was such an animal. And if there were, it would be related to the great sloth which hangs upside down in a tree all day every day, sleeping its life away. To hell with that, shake the tree and knock the great sloth down on his ass."

"I carry a log--yes. Is it funny to you? It is not to me. Behind all
things are reasons. Reasons can even explain the absurd. Do we have
the time to learn the reasons behind the human being's varied behavior?
I think not. Some take the time. Are they called detectives?

Thought I'd put up some visual entertainment of our day in Brixton on Sunday... where we had a very good time indeed, thank you to Treat for putting the show on, Failsafe for sorting us and everyone else out proper with their backline... AND everybody that showed up and making it extremely fun. menage.

I was pleased to see today though that the possiblity of me getting a lodestone resonator for christmas is increasing exponentially. Now all we need is the Æsahættr.

We might have some more gigs coming up soon and release dates for the records shortly. HOLD YOUR BREATH.

thanks to Luke Thomas Scott.

"Goodbye, May Kasahara."

I spent the other day accidentally trawling myspace for people I used to go to school with... yes, accidentally. What prompted this fit of voyeurism in me i do not know, could've had something to do with the wedding of an old friend I attended last weekend, seems i'm at the age now where marriage isn't something totally out of the question and shouldn't be greeted with the response, "are you insane?!". Ho Hum, i tried my hardest to not act like a grown-up, the free bar helped, but i was beaten in the anti-grown up behaviour by some surprising people in attendance... Anyway, it was strange to say the least, the wedding and my snooping into people's lives on the internet, through various hints and clues finding out that my delusions that I am actually still 18 aren't true... how sad.
The refining of my answer to the ultimate social gathering question, "so... what do you do?" was a toss up between -

"It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.

It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life's betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain!I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it or fade it, or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own, if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, to be realistic, to remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn't interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself; if you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul; if you can be faithlessand therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see beauty even when it's not pretty, every day,and if you can source your own life from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand on the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, “Yes!”

It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up, after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be done to feed the children.

It doesn't interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire with me and not shrink back.

It doesn't interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you, from the inside, when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments."


"Uh, i work at an after-school club and play in bands... yes, that is kind of the same thing i was doing when I was 16."
