We have told tales on Zomby before, so there’s nae need for a full fandangle… but this new 2×12″ on Ramp is as undead as they come – in fact it’s completely alive with creeping squelches, angular blips and totally, totally gone rhythms. Loving it to pieces, except every track feels shorter than it need be, I’ll stop moaning about with these wonkanauts once they start to fully resolve their bleepscapes for longer than a couple of minutes, three at a stretch.
Enjoy the track and then make like a ship-shape shopper and follow the links for the EP/MiniLP stinkstravaganza, flanking you mildly.
There only seems to be one releiable pic of Zombie and we’ve run it… so I googled ‘shit zombie’ and found this instead.
James Duncan release type celebratory shenaniganisations at DOC on the K on Saturday night. Flyer below and check that DJ line-up!! Last week supporting The Specials (with Felix Hall and that gent Trevor Jackson), then this week Messrs Duncan, Donnelly, Cartier and Grattan behind the deckage alongside yours truly, blessed and spoilt is how I feel.
There will be blog love when the dust settles…promise.
