    Gonkcast

    I've been listening to a few episodes of this podcast - they're essentially going through Ae's discography in chronological order and providing their opinions on each release, discussing stand-out tracks, the background and history of each release etc. They also quote directly from Sean and Rob when discussing how some of the albums were made, different approaches taken with each one, interview excerpts from the lads etc. I actually find their discussions interesting to listen to. Some of their discussions looks at technical details too. Good on them for giving this a go - Ae's music is very difficult to talk about and I'm not saying Gonkcast is perfect at this but hearing people's different views and interpretations of Ae's music is quite interesting to hear in an audio format as opposed to reading watmm threads where you usually get one liner responses to tracks as opposed to long form discussions. Definitely find it a bit odd though that one of the guys thinks Untilted is their worst release yet (wtf - blasphemy).
  2. VHS Head on Twitter: "If I were to do a self release double/triple 12” album, would anyone be interested in that?" / Twitter
  3. I am guessing he needs Skam for help with the physical release of a record. I know nothing about record sales but if digital outperforms physical anyway, why not self-release with no help from Skam? I am sure he has a large enough fan base to do OK with self-releases but I could be wrong.
  4. Thanks oscillik for the update. Any ideas why Skam are delaying the release?
  5. Does anyone have any kind of update on the new record release date? Seems like he completed the record in Spring last year, so it's been a year long wait! This guy's music is up there with the likes of Ae/Afx/BOC.

    The Tuss

    it would be amazing if we ever got a new Tuss record
  7. Looks like the Hell Interface FB page has was registered back in 2011.
  8. marcus pls doesn't have the same ring to it as sean pls or rob pls
  9. Yeah what's with the lycra wearing cycling gear middle aged Dads out cycling on weekends and are sometimes aggressively cycling to piss off cars? Are they going through some kind of mid-life crisis? Does anyone know anyone that does this and can provide an insight into these people?
  10. I have to admit that I have a soft spot for their Human After All album. I know it got a lot of hate in the music press and not many fans reference it as a milestone but it's easily their 'weirdest' release. Tunes like Technologic are catchy yet ominous at the same time. Oh and managed to seem them live back in 2007 with the pyramid stuff on set and the bass from Television Rules the Nation heard live was pretty nice. Discovery has some stand out tunes - probably peaked at that point.
  11. Century of the Self is another great one - as well as Bitter Lake and Hypernormalisation (the latter of which sort of touches on similar themes to the new documentary)
  12. I can see why they didn't release it - just feels like it wouldn't fit on any of their releases to date. Lush tune though. Which is why it would be great to have an Old Tunes boxset of some kind.
  13. Yes! I've been listening for the past couple of years. Many hilarious moments. If anyone is a fan of Vic Berger, check this out as he's one of the hosts.
  14. More interested in the TH samples than any other album yet no exploration there? That album is dense with sample snippets of which the origins are probably much more obscure than we like to think.
  15. Has anyone caught any of the new film, Can't Get You Out Of My Head? I'm only finished with episode 1 but wow, he has really firmed up nicely his theory on individualism versus collective action quite nicely in this one. Some very interesting characters even in the first episode. Looking forward to the rest of it. So far this one feels like a summary of his main arguments drawn from prior/recent works of his but the characters and drama in this one appear to be a lot more exciting and thought provoking.
  16. I have been checking out Salvatorin's soundcloud since the news of his passing and I have to say he had exceptional skills when it came to music; not only electronic music but other genres as well. One of a kind.
  17. Can anyone share anymore links to his music/art to check out?
  18. That's a beautiful track from him. RIP Salvatorin
  19. The ending of that remix, with that synth arp that fades out is simply lush. I could listen to that loop forever.
  20. Some might say that I am overdoing the compliment here but I think this AE live set from 2008 is one of the best pieces of music ever written.
  21. this is amazing, thank you to all who made this happen, including the Ae boys!
  22. It is my favourite live set from them... probably top 10 piece of music too overall. It melts my brain every time and the melodic hooks are so catchy and alien.
  23. That Nord sample sounds beautiful. Are you guys going to be putting out a complete live set with no crowd noise? I’d prefer this so we get a ‘studio’ version.
  24. How is the mastering coming along? Can a small snippet of some of the sounds from the Nord be posted please whilst we wait?
