After a day trip to Sandal Castle in Wakefield, we’re now wading through several hundred images to select one for the “Laik Tors” album sleeve, not an easy task!
Snooker legend Steve Davis has an excellent radio programme, “The Interesting Alternative Show” well worth checking out. He recently played a track from our second album “Adios Al Futuro“!
Our third album “Laik Tors” is now at the mixing stage. Here’s Nick laying down some 12 string (inspired by the Troggs)
Following the series of mashups for DR#1, we’ve been too busy working on DR#3 to “interpret” anything from Adios, but here’s something for you – one of the tracks, backwards and at half speed. Quite enchanting, isn’t it? A bonus point if you recognise the track!
From Audion / Ultima Thule DAS RAD ADIOS AL FUTURO No, not a bunch of Teutonic radicals, Das Rad got their name (partly, I think) from Steve Dinsdale’s first electronic band named DAS, who were the precursor to Radio Massacre International, and adding the first letter of each member’s surname (which is also the first […]

Because behind the name and optical mystery hides a trio from Sheffield, England, which turns completely to the experimental and “not always easy to appreciate” tones. Nick Robinson (guitar, keyboards, […]
Here’s our contribution to the anniversary release of Miniatures 2020!
Wow, the Wheel is treading! Despite all the strange attributes of noise, flight, improvisation, etc. it all comes together in a hellishly shaped sense! The wheel = wheel. Martin Archer prepared it nicely for us. Perhaps he will never get involved in the publishing deeds of his Discus Music. Whether he releases unique recordings by […]
We had a special guest at our last recording sessions…
We’re delighted that Peter Rophone will contribute to our next album (as yet untitled). He has an extraordinary voice, which I think bears comparison to the late Jeff Buckley. We’ve sent him a suitably spacious piece and asked him to work his magic. Can’t wait to hear what he comes up with! Here’s a track […]
Thanks to all those who have supporting the band during this difficult year, through ordering, promoting, reviewing or simply enjoying. We sincerely hope for better times ahead! We have sold half of our limited edition 10″ vinyl and will be having more cut in the New Year. Our third album is well under way. Who […]
