justice yeldham

~ ~
Yeldham’s live performance consists of grinding his face into a sheet of mic’d up plate glass. It is hideous for a variety of reasons. One is that the transparency of the glass means you get to view his face all squished up against the other side of the glass like a kid on a special bus wiping his nose down the window as you overtake them on the motorway. Another reason is the sound really is quite nasty. The resonant properties of the glass means as he yells onto/into it and then pulls and squeezes at the sheet, the pitch of his voice wildly varies and wavers and this in turn is run through some truly ugly processing that makes it sound like a Dalek in it’s death throes.”

The lovely and ever so sexy cletus_buckley has tagged me so in the read more is what ive been had on repeat a lot lately

so i guess a few words before each track is in order

this is off the sound track to Clockwork Orange, and is a reworking of the original by Walter/Wendy Carlos,Walter/Wendy Carlos is an American composer and electronic musician. She is one of the first famous performers of electronic music using synthesizers. In 1972, Carlos underwent sex reassignment surgery, (also love her soundtrack to tron) love listening to his song on the luas kinda baked and watching all the people get on and off.
MP3>Walter/Wendy Carlos & Rachel Elkind - Theme From A Clockwork Orange (Beethoviana)

Slick Rick (Real name Richard Walters,born January 14, 1965 in South Wimbledon, London, England) is an East Coast rapper, known for a series of hip hop recordings during the 1980s. He was blinded by broken glass as an infant and took to wearing an eyepatch from an early age. Walters moved with his family to the Bronx in 1975. Got the album The Great Adventures Of Slick Rick a few months back and is great old school stuff , and the song is great for the way the story telling especially for the time as well.

Slick Rick - Children's Story

MP3>Slick Rick - Children's Story

Led by rob crow (of pinback, heavy vegetable, optiganally yours, the ladies, goblin cock, physics, aspects of physics, orca, fantasy mission force, snotnose, remote action sequence project, altron tube, the alpha males, and surely more bands) Thingy formed in 1995 or 1996 after the dissolving of heavy vegetable, thingy specialized in a highly complex and melodic form of indie/rock type music with boy/girl vocals. always quirkly and playfully downtrodden. just of late been listening to their albums again , no real reason (no real reason needed their great).

MP3>Thingy - Destroy All Music
