Hello to anyone visiting after reading Pete Coward and Seth Cooke’s lovely article posted at Bang the Bore about my work with fencing flatworm, oTo and this blog.  I hope you find much of interest here, not least many free-to-download mp3s of FFR releases.  Should you be a regular reader wondering what I’m talking about then mix yourself a drink, settle down and click here.

Part one is an article written by Pete Coward (described by Seth as: “bootlegger/blagger and Wire website tech guru”, known only to me as “that guy who used to buy stuff that I met at that one show once”) about FFR and its philosophy.  His thoughts are insightful, generous and laid out with panache and I am grateful to the point of jaw-dropping amazement that he gave my (*ahem*) legacy (*snigger*) such considered consideration.  Part two, to come in a fortnight or so, is a lengthy email interview with yours truly conducted by Seth with Pete chipping in.  I hope you find the exchange as entertaining to read as it was to write.

Being involved in this project has been great fun and, of course, enormously flattering.  I enjoyed having to think hard about what motivated the Rob of ten years ago; it was a very interesting experience to apply the benefit of hindsight to the FFR/Termite Club days.  Sorting all that out in my head is one of the major factors inspiring my continued reactivation of midwich (watch this space).  Should you not be aware of Bang the Bore I heartily recommend frequent and substantial visits.  It is a force for the good.

birchville cat motel – nurse


fencing flatworm recordings, ff027, 1 track, 31m45s, CD-r in plastic wallet with colour cover, second and final edition of 10

Whilst poking the ffrchive with a stick the other day I discovered a handful of pristine, full colour, laser printed covers for the release above featuring the beautiful photography of my former flatworm comrade Sean Keeble.  Seemed a shame not to use ’em so I’ve decided to make this CD-r available again in a second edition of 10.  This is your absolute final chance to get hold of this fondly remembered release, on the influential fencing flatworm recordings, in its lovely original cover.

Campbell Kneale should need little introduction to readers of this blog.  The hardest working man in drone-business, once ubiquitous as BCM but now better known as Our Love Will Destroy The World, he has spent years building up a dauntingly large and relentlessly beautiful back catalogue.  The world is a brighter place for having him in it.

Here is my original blurb from the fencing flatworm site:

campbell never lets you down, right? when I saw the instrument list included such things as ‘baby monitor’ I was worried this might sound gimmicky, but not a bit of it. as high class as your previous favourite birchville release, if not more so. this is a half-hour of beautifully enveloping organic drone. if you know bcm: you’ll need this, if you don’t: why the hell not?! you should start right here.

And here is a little mp3 clip.

See ‘for sale’ page (tab above) for purchasing details.
