Snakefinger – The Vultures Of Bombay

Snakey with a  track from his debut solo album (solo with some Residential backing and co-writing duties). This shows the man’s unique guitar style bursting out over a New Wave/Post Punk tune. The section that starts at 1:50 is exquisite; leaving one to wish it went on for just a bit longer.


Function Presents: Sandwell District Continuous DJ Mix (2009)

Heavy, dark, fantastic Techno from the Sandwell District label; delivered by Function.


Kemialliset Ystävät – Himmeli Kutsuu Minua

From the bands 2007 album ‘Kemialliset Ystävät’; this is wonderfully uplifting freak folk from the city of Tampere. Ingest and enjoy.

Adam & The Ants – The Idea

Irreverent theological musings with some punk-funk/angular new wave backdrops; from the fantastic 1979 album ‘Dirk Wears White Sox’.

Mark Broom – Gira

Is it named after the Swans frontman? We don’t know, but we do know that this slice of spectral, stalking UK Techno from 1995 is off of Broom’s ‘Time’ EP.

Chrystal Belle Scrodd – Split And Well Hung

A track from the 1986 compilation ‘Ohrensausen’ (with the likes of Nurse With Wound, Coil, H.N.A.S, and Smegma; where Diana Rogerson plays around with the lyrics to songs like ‘That Old Black Magic’ and mangles them along with the disjointed music. Her voice goes from sultry to terrifying; something people familiar with her work with Nurse With Wound will recognise. Fantastic, as ever.

This Heat – Peel Sessions 1977


  1. Rimp Romp Ramp (0:00)
  2. Makeshift Swahili (6:40)
  3. Sitting (12:59)
  4. Basement Boy (15:15)
  5. Slither (17:24)

F.U.S.E – Another Time (Revisited)

Richie Hawtin with some Windsor Techno from back in 1992. Classic, classic stuff that stands proudly next to the motor city sound.

Liars – There’s Always Room On The Broom

Some scuzzy Punk-Funk from ‘They Were Wrong, So We Drowned’, the bands 2004 album about Witchcraft upon the Brocken (Mountain) during German Walpurgis Nacht.

Lydia Lunch and Clint Ruin – What Is It?

Jim and Lydia team up for a spoken word piece that featured on the 1984 compilation ‘Better An Old Demon Than A New God’, which saw them sit alongside the likes of Psychic TV, John Giorno, William S. Burroughs, and Arto Lindsay.
