3″ CD-r on Bells Hill, edition of 50 or download. 12 tracks in 18 minutes! Some of the drone I am usually associated with but, in the main, this is a collection of fun, spiky sketches in the mode of the short interludes you’d often find on earlier midwich recordings.  Physical objects are not for sale, instead they are offered up as gifts or in trade.  If you’d like one get in touch with me or Scott (try @scottmckeating). Bandcamp for download.

midwich – faraday cage

tape, 3 tracks, 44 minutes, Matching Head.

First of the new wave of midwich releases.  Dirtier, noisier and darker than the crystalline, life-affirming fare to be found on other stuff by me.  The three tracks in short: ‘part one: magnets’ is an industrial folk drone, corrosive for a refreshing brain-scouring effect, ‘part two: f4jb’ is a bristling, high voltage asymmetric throb that smells of ozone and ‘part three: feathered machinery’ is a 20 minute epic of digestive rumbling and guttering arc lights.  More details and mp3 clips to be found here.  Contact Lee Stokoe at lee_stokoe@hotmail.com to sort out paypal and whatnot.

still available

midwich-vs-culver  &  culver-vs-midwich – ii

Two fiercely tape-only releases (no mp3 clips this time, mate) constructed from real tape-loops spliced by my own fair hand and augmented by midwichian drones and culveresque rumblings.  Recorded straddling 2002 and 2003.  Mesmerising and surprisingly contemplative in places despite being proper noise throughout.  See ‘faraday cage’ listing above for details of how to contact Lee Stokoe/Matching Head.

midwich – three days in, four to go

Originally released in 2003 on CD-r in an edition of 75 with a lovely screen printed cover by Carbon Records of Rochester, New York.  One of my favourites of the first-wave midwich albums.  Forward looking, creamy.  ‘snows’ is an orchestra of hairclipper fuzz, the title track is a deeply penetrating 20 minute cardiothrob.  A few of the physical objects are still available direct from Carbon.  Otherwise it can be found for download at the midwich bandcamp site.
