Jukebox Chatter: Hey Sholay
Sheffield's latest prodigies talk x-ray vinyl and skincell velocity
Hi guys, your debut albums been going down a treat. For those that haven't checked it out yet, give them a reason why they should...
Because it is Produced by Dave Sanderson (65daysofstatic, Black Moth), and mastered by Don Grossinger (Pink Floyd, Flaming Lips). It may or may not contain frequencies that match the vibration velocity of the skincells in your eardrums...
There seems to be a lot going down in Sheffield at the moment, any other bands you'd like to 'big up' while your here?
There are most likely hundreds. I'm gonna say Mudcats Blues Trio. SRV, Buddy Guy at their best, then played by a real life fireman who himself combusts whilst playing, taking the venue with him down a black hole.
What can we expect from the physical release of your debut, '((o))'?
A host of special edition options, and a 'revisit' to some of the tracks with our Producer. It contains a cover design by Tom Mcquillin, and other elements by the band...
How'd you make those X-Ray vinyl?
We approached a friend at Vulcan Wax Cylinder Records, in Sheffield after learning about 1960's soviet piracy of western records (which were banned) From the filmaker Nathan Gibson. Duncan had built a machine which can make a vinyl from almost anything that is .3 of a mm thick or more. We cut xray acetates into 10" records, and he showed us how to make them. He made us about 30 of them. I suppose they're like the old flexidisks you used to get on cereal boxes too.
You have one token left on the Jukebox, what's it gonna be?
One half of Fuck Buttons solo project. A danceable, and efforvescent take on somwhere between Brain Eno's Dune efforts, and Vangelis 'Bladerunner' works. Really warm synth sounds.
