LOL, couldn't get squarepusher.com, eh?

 

Nice to see they finally get the idea of artists having sites to communicate with the fans...

 

What's also interesting is the second link at the bottom goes to the iTunes store!

TRACK 01 HELLO MEOW

ENTITLED "HELLO MEOW", THE OPENING PIECE IS DEDICATED TO THE PIONEERING WORK OF 4X4 DEALERSHIP DRILL CACKMAN LTD. IT REFERS TO THE CUSTOM PET -FRIENDLY WARNING HORN WHICH IS AUTOMATICALLY ACTIVATED WHEN A DOMESTIC VARIETY ABOVE A STANDARDISED LEVEL OF CLEANLINESS IS SENSED WITHIN 5 METRES OF THE FRONT OF THE CAR. THE WARNING SYSTEM SHOUTS "HELLO MEOW!" AND AUTOMATICALLY APPLIES THE BRAKES. IF ON THE OTHER HAND THE ANIMAL FALLS BELOW THE CLEANLINESS THRESHOLD OR IS CLEARLY A WILD ANIMAL, THE SYSTEM SHOUTS "RIGHT I'M GONNA SMASH YOUR FACE OFF!" AND ACCELERATES THE VEHICLE TOWARDS THE ANIMAL. THIS FEATURE IS RECKONED TO BE OF IMMENSE SAFETY ENHANCING POTENTIAL WHEN DRIVING TO THE LOCAL HEALTH FOOD SHOP, ELIMANATING THE CHANCE OF VIRAL INFECTIONS CAUGHT FROM DIRTY WILDLIFE.

 

TRACK 02 THEME FROM SPRITE

"WHEN SOFTLY THE WIND BLOWS, COLD ONLY A FOOL FEELS, ACH", OR SO SAID THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER WHEN PRESSED FOR HIS VIEWS ON WIND FARMS. FARMING WIND MIGHT BE SAID TO BE A SPECIALITY OF BIG - CHEESE KNOBS SUCH DIRE BLAIR AND TONY STRAIGHTREAR. EVER READY TO SHOW US HIS TRADEMARK PRAGMATISM TO THE FLIP SIDE OF ANY POSSIBLE COIN, TOM TURNS HIS ATTENTION TO THE PRESSING QUESTION OF GENERATING SUFFICIENT BREEZE TO POWER THE GOVERNMENT'S INTER - PARTY BOUNCY CASTLE, RECENTLY INSTALLED INSIDE THE HOUSE OF COMMONS. HENCE THE INGENIOUSLY COMPOSED "THEME FROM SPRITE", WHICH WILL GENERATE A STEADY BREEZE OF 3.4 KNOTS WHEN PLAYED ON ANY STEREO SYSTEM CURRENTLY BEING THROWN FROM THE WINDOW OF A TRAIN. GOVERNMENT GRANTS ARE NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE.

 

TRACK 03 BUBBLE LIFE

VICTORIA BECKHAM'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY WAS BILLED AS THE LITERARY EVENT OF THE PALEZOIC ERA, OR SO IT SEEMED AT THE TIME. BACK IN THE DAY, ONE FELT FORTUNATE WHEN A COPY OF THE "FORTEAN TIMES" LANDED AT ONE'S FEET, SO THIS SHIT WAS TO DIE FOR. RECALLING HER UPBRINGING IN THE HOOD, GANG WARFARE WAS VERY MUCH THIS YOUNG STEGOSAUR'S BREAD AND BUTTER. THE TURNING POINT CAME WHEN, AS SHE WAS HOLDING UP A DRUGSTORE IN THE EURASIAN SUPERCONTINENT, SHE NOTICED A YOUNG TRILOBITE CALLED DEVOID BECKHAM. SHE INSTANTLY VOMITED, DISSOLVING THE UNFORTUNATE TRILOBITE IN SULPHURIC ACID AND OUT OF SHEER GRIEF HURLED HERSELF INTO THE SEETHING BILE. WHAT WE NOW REFER TO AS THE "BIG BANG" SUBSEQUENTLY OCCURED, GIVING BIRTH TO VICTORIA'S NOW WORLD FAMOUS OFFSPRING, THE "UNIVERSE" AND YOUNGER SIBLINGS "MILKY WAY" AND "MILTON KEYNES".

 

TRACK 04 PLANETARIUM

"EVERYBODY HURTS", THE CRYPTIC APHORISM NOW ATTRIBUTED TO THE PERMANENTLY DECEASED HAROLD SHITMAN SHINES BROWN LIGHT ON MANY CRUCIAL TOPICS OF EXISTENSIAL IMPORT, SUCH AS WHETHER SOMEONE HURTS OR NOT. SPECIFICALLY, CAN A MAN IN PAIN BE RELIED UPON TO BE A WITNESS IN A COURT CASE ATTEMPTING TO SORT OUT WHETHER A MAN WAS IN PAIN OR NOT. AND IF EVERYBODY IN THE COURTROOM IS IN PAIN, CAN THE OUTCOME BE SAID TO BE RELIABLE GIVEN THAT THEIR JUDGEMENTS ARE CLOUDED BY DISCOMFORT. AND IF EVERYBODY IS IN PAIN, HAVE THEY ALWAYS BEEN SO? IN WHICH CASE HOW CAN THE STATE OF PAIN BE DEFINED, IF NOT FROM THE VANTAGE POINT OF NO -PAIN? IN ORDER TO REMEDY THIS SEEMINGLY INTRACTABLE PROBLEM, TOM OFFERS "PLANETARIUM", A SONG FEATURING TOM'S COPYRIGHTED "PAIN INVERSION" SYSTEM, SO NOW YOU CAN GET "ONE OVER PAIN!"

 

TRACK 05 VACUUM GARDEN

THE INFAMOUS AND INFLUENTIAL NME JOURNALIST VOM HILARITY ONCE STATED THAT HE WOULD SET ON FIRE ANYBODY OWNING A RECORD BY CABER TOSSERS WEATHER REPORT .UPON HEARING THIS, TOM FELT RATHER CONCERNED AND SET ABOUT DISPOSING OF HIS EMBARRASINGLY EXTENSIVE COLLECTION OF WEATHER REPORT LPS. HE WAS SO UPSET TO SEE HIS PRIZED COLLECTION IN THE DUSTBIN THAT THE VOLUME OF TEARS ISSUING FROM HIS EYEBALLS MANAGED TO DOUSE ALL THE PEOPLE CURRENTLY ON FIRE AROUND THE COUNTRY DUE TO VOM'S ANTICS. GOOD OLD TOM SAVES THE DAY ! THE PIECE "VACUUM GARDEN" IS ACTUALLY BY WEATHER REPORT, BUT AS THEY ARE CURRENTLY ON FIRE IT SEEMS POLITE NOT TO TROUBLE THEM.

 

TRACK 06 CIRCLEWAVE 2

THOM YORKE'S RECENT GAFFE CONCERNING "THE MUSIC INDUSTRY" RECIEVED GOOD COVERAGE IN THE MEDIA LAST WEEK. THE GUARDIAN REPORTED IT AS "UNTESTABLE CONJECTURE", OF "UNCLEARLY DELIMITED RELEVANCE" AND "AGAIN LACKING PERSPICACITY". THE DAILY MAIL WERE TOTALLY DISGUSTED BY THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE, THESE COMMENTS PRESUMABLY INCLUDED. EVERYONE ELSE THOUGHT IT "REALLY GOOD" AND "BRILLIANT". THUS THE LIGHTNING SPEED REFUATATION FROM DAMON ALLBRAN, STATING THAT AS THOM YORKE CAN'T EVEN SPELL "TOM" PROPERLY, WHY SHOULD ANYBODY CARE WHAT HE THINKS. CIRCLEWAVE 2 IS A FITTING TRIBUTE TO THIS RIOT OF INTELLECTUALLISATIONING.

 

TRACK 07 CRONECKER KING

EVERYBODY IN ATTENDANCE AT THE "INTER CULTURAL TUPPERWARE PARTY" RECENTLY HELD AT THE HAYWARD GALLERY WERE FROM ALBION ROAD IN STOKE NEWINGTON. THIS WAS THE SOURCE OF SOME IRRITATION ON THE PART OF THE ATTENDANTS EXPECTING TO MIX WITH PEOPLE WHO WERE NOT AS SATISFIED AS THEY WERE. THE IRONIC AND VERY RARE SITUATION OF THE ATTENDEES IN A STATE OF DISSATISFACTION LEAD IN TURN TO AN ADVENTUROUS CHAP INITIATING A DEBATE CONCERNING WHETHER THERE WERE DIFFERENT QUALITIES OF DISSATISFACTION, OR WHETHER IT VARIED ONLY IN INTENSITY. NOONE WAS FORTHCOMING, BEFUDDLED AT THEIR FIRST TASTE OF THESE EXOTIC FRUITS; THUS FAILING TO NOTICE THE EARLY SIGNS OF WHAT SHORTLY BECAME A DEVASTATINGNUCLEAR EXPLOSION. A SCIENTIST SAID IT WAS CAUSED BY CRITICAL MASS OF A HITHERTO UNDISCOVERED RADIOACTIVE ISOTOPE OF ALUMINIUM, APPARENTLY FOUND IN HIGH CONCENTRATIONS IN SPECTACLE FRAMES. "KRONECKER KING "IS A TOUCHING ELEGY FOR THE DECEASED.

 

TRACK 08 ROTATE ELECTROLYTE

FOR MEN, HOMOSEXUALITY IS A PROBLEM. NOT OF COURSE IN THE SENSE THAT MEN DISLIKE HOMOSEXUALS, BUT IN THE SENSE THAT ALL MEN ARE HOMOSEXUALS. AT LEAST THIS IS THE VIEW PROPOUNDED BY GOVERNMENT THINK TANK AND FRENCHMAN LETITIA DEAN, IN RESPONSE TO THE OUTCRY CONCERNING THE LEGISLATION PROMOTING MORE HOMOSEXUALITY IN SCHOOLS. COUNCILLORS ARE WORRIED ABOUT MEETING STIFF QUOTAS SET BY A GOVERNMENT OBSESSED WITH AN IDEALISTIC VISION OF AN ENTIRELY HOMOSEXUAL POPULATION. LETITIA SUGGESTS LARGE -SCALE VAPORISATION OF THE PROLETARIAT WHO WILL NEVER ADMIT TO BEING GAY AND A REMOVAL OF SOCIAL PRIVILEDGE FOR ARISTOS WHO ARE MORE OFTEN THAN NOT "OVER- GAY" RESULTING IN A INADVERTENT RETURN TO HETEROSEXUALITY. THIS PROBLEM HAS BEEN AUGMENTED BY THE RECENT DISCOVERY THAT WOMEN ARE IN FACT TWO MEN JOINED AT THE PENIS, THUS MAKING IT ESSENTIAL THAT HOMOSEXUALITY IS THE NORM IF THE HUMAN RACE IS TOCONTINUE. "ROTATE ELECTROLYTE" IS A MUSICALISATION OF TOM'S VISION OF REPLACING EVERY HUMAN TORSO WITH A CHEAP SEMICONDUCTOR. THIS ALLOWS FOR ELECTRONIC "ROTATION" OF THE SEXUALITY BY THE REQUIRED NUMBER OF DEGREES. EXOTIC VARIATIONS EXIST FOR ADVENTUROUS SUCH AS 540 DOUBLE GAY, -180 REVERSE GAY AND 2 PI RADIANS SINE GAY.

 

TRACK 09 WELCOME TO EUROPE

THE PROBLEM OF THE ENVIRONMENT IS SOMETHING WHICH CONCERNS, OR SHOULD CONCERN US ALL. APART FROM WHEN IT IS GETTING COLDER OR STAYING THE SAME, ONE CAN FEEL THE TEMPERATURE RISING DAILY. HENCE THE INGENIOUS SOLUTION PUT FORWARD BY FRANKLIN MINT, DESIGNER OF THE TONY SOPER SIGNATURE SERIES BIRD TABLE. HE PROPOSES TO BUILD A GIANT FRIDGE INSIDE WHICH THE PLANET EARTH WILL BE SUSPENDED. THE FRIDGE WILL BE SUPPORTED BY GIRDERS MOUNTED ON THE MOON AND A LARGE ROPE REACHING TO SIRIUS, HENCE HIS NOW BEST SELLING PAPERBACK, "THE SIRIUS CONNECTION". THE FRIDGE ITSELF WILL CONTAIN ITEMS CRITICAL TO THE EFFICACIOUS RESOLUTION OF CLIMACTIC DISRUPTION SUCH AS A 1000 MILE HIGH TETRA -PAK CONTAINING OFF MILK, A 30 BILLION GALLON TIN OF STALE BAKED BEANS AND 5000 MILE WIDE STAIN OF A BLUEY- BROWN COLOUR. THAT BOTH GOD AND FRANKLIN MINT SEEM TO MOVE IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS WOULD NOT SEEM TO ENTAIL THE IDENTITY OF THE TWO; HOWEVER ANY ATTEMPTS TO CONTRADICT THIS IMPROBABLE CONCLUSION MAKES FRANKLIN THREATEN NOT TO BUILD THE WORLD SAVING FRIDGE, SO FOR ALL OF OUR SAKES, BUTTON IT!

 

TRACK 10 PLOTINUS

SMOKING WEED IS GOOD, OR SO SAYS AN INDEPENDENTLY PRODUCED DOCUMENT PRIVATELY LEAKED FROM A UNSPECIFIED SOURCE. IT HELPS ONE BE DEPRESSED AND PARANOID, AND AIDS THE CULTIVATION OF SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION. MOST IMPORTANTLY, IT STOPS ONE FROM WANTING TO TALK TO ANYBODY. THIS FORMS THE SOCIAL PILLAR OF RECENTLY CONCEIVED GOVERNMENT BLUE PAPERS ON COMBATTING CLIMATE CHANGE AT GRASS ROOTS. IF, AS IT IS PROPOSED, EVERYBODY STOPS TALKING TO EACH OTHER THEN CONVERSATIONAL C02 WILL BE ELIMINATED. THE RISK IS THAT THERE MAY BE A DEMOGRAPHIC INCREASE IN LEVELS OF PROFUNDITY, ESPECIALLY AMONGST FANS OF RADIOHEAD; THIS COULD LEAD MORE PEOPLE TO SHOUTING IMPASSIONED DIATRIBES AT THE SKY, WITH THE ADDED RISK OF FRICTIONAL HEAT GENERATED BY RAPID GESTICULATION, ALL RESULTING IN A LOT OF UNWANTED HOT AIR. THIS WILL HOPEFULLY BE OFFSET BY AN IMPERVIOUS BUFFER ZONE OF GANJA SMOKE HOVERING AT A RADIUS OF TWO METRES TO EACH SMOKER. "PLOTINUS" IS DEDICATED TO THE NEO - PLATONIST WEED SMOKING PHILOSOPHERS AMONGST YOU. SO WHY DRINK AND DRIVE, WHEN YOU CAN SMOKE POT AND FLY !?

 

TRACK 11 THE MODERN BASS GUITAR

&THE MODERN BASS GUITAR" DOESN'T TAKE ITS NAME FROM A SCHEME TO MAKE ALL MCDONALDS RESTERAUNTS SELF -SUSTAINING. THE PLAN IS TO PRESENT EACH FEMALE CUSTOMER WITHIN THE AGE RANGE OF 13- 45 WITH A FREE, BRAND NEW IPOD WITH EACH PURCHASE. THROUGHOUT THE YEAR, THE VALUE AND SOPHISTICATION OF EACH IPOD PRESENTED IS TO BE INCREASED, SUCH AS TO INDUCE AND PERPETUATE A STATE OF CHRONIC JEALOUSY IN THE CLIENTELE. THE HEAT PRODUCED BY EACH CUSTOMER IS TO BE COLLECTED BY SUBTLY POSITIONED HEAT EXCHANGERS, EACH CAPABLE OF PRODUCING UP TO 10KW EVERY HOUR FROM AN AVERAGELY IRRITATED WOMAN, AND A PEAK POWER OF 30KW FROM VERBAL ABUSE AND PHYSICALLY MANIFESTED RAGE. THIS COUPLED WITH THE BACKGROUND FRUSTRATION AT EATING FOOD WHICH GIVES YOU CANCER, COSTS A LOT OF MONEY AND SMELLS LIKE A NAPPY SHOULD SET MCDONALDS WELL ON THE WAY TO POWERING EVERY DEEP -CRAP FRYER WITH MISERY. ALCHEMY IS ACHEIVED - MUCK INTO GOLD (AND THEN BACK INTO MUCK).

 

TRACK 12 ORIENT ORANGE

THE ALBUM CONCLUDES WITH A PIECE DEDICATED TO THE PIONEERING WORK OF BRITISH ELECTRONICA ACT "AUTISM". THEY HAVE SET ABOUT ATTEMPTING TO QUANTIFY EACH PARTICULAR ELECTRONICA ACT'S ALOOFNESS, THEREBY ENABLING OBJECTIVE COMPARISON BETWEEN THEM. THE PROPOSED SCALE IS A WITTY SPIN ON THE FIGURATIVE ASPECTS OF ALOOFNESS, THUS THEY PLAN TO MEASURE IT IN METRIC UNITS OF ALTITUDE. "BORED OF CANADA" ARE CURRENTLY IN THE LEAD, HAVING CEASED SPEAKING EVEN TO EACH OTHER FOUR YEARS AGO, LET ALONE THE OUTSIDE WORLD AND ARE THUS CURRENTLY PLACED AT A STAGGERING HEIGHT OF 3 KILOMETRES ABOVE JOE BLOGGS. SQUAREPUSHER WAS DOING REASONABLY WELL UNTIL HE DECIDED TO ENGRATIATE HIMSELF WITH THE AUDIENCE MEMBER BY PUTTING HIS FACE ON THE SLEEVE OF "ULTRAVISITOR". AT THIS HE PLUMMETED TO BARELY CENTIMETRES ABOVE JOE BLOGGS, AND HAS THUS COMPOSED THIS INCOMPREHENSIBLE DIATRIBE TO PUT HIMSELF ABOVE EVERYBODY AGAIN. WE AWAIT THE VERDICT.....

- AT THE AGE OF 12, TOM PLAYED HIS FIRST GROUP PERFORMANCE AT THE CHELMSFORD YMCA WITH "SUB ZERO" IN 1987. AS THEY ONLY KNEW FIVE SONGS, TOM WAS REQUIRED TO PAD OUT THE SET WITH AN EXTENSIVE CLIFF BURTON INSPIRED BASS SOLO, DURING WHICH HIS TROUSERS FELL DOWN AS HE HAD FORGOTTEN TO WEAR A BELT.

Welcome to Europe bears an audible resemblance to material off the classic Hard Normal Daddy (that slidey synth was definitely on there somewhere), while other tracks could have been taken straight from the distinctly old-school 1997 compilation Burningn'n Tree. Come to think of it, Planetarium conjures up memories of Aphex Twin's 54 Cymru Beats astonishingly well.

:laughing: wtf...this is stunningly dumb...

I still can't get my head around the fact Go Plastic was made without the aid of computers.

 

Or that Squarepusher considers Hello Everything to be intended for the more casual listener, yet still included a 6 minute sine wave experiment and 48 seconds of drum panning as worthy tracks.

Especially where he explains the algorithm behind the vacuum tube tracks

 

Hmm didn't read that bit, infact thinking about the type of noise it is. Has anyone WATCHED this track (spectrogram)?

This piece is constructed using the additive synthesis method i.e. building a composite sound out of individual sine waves. The sound generating device is a vacuum tube signal generator from the '50s. The only parameters available are to change the frequency and the amplitude of the signal. Thus the appeal: I really liked the idea of working with such an inherently limited piece of equipment, as it presents a considerable challenge to make something credible as "music" from it.The piece is made by layering the sine wave signals track by track. I set out on paper a list of modulations in frequency, such that a movement is made from one frequency to another, then back again. This is repeated three times; each movement takes a minute; thus the track last approximately six minutes. The pairs of frequencies to be moved between are different for each sine wave, but are mathematically related. The piece was recorded on a sixteen track tape machine, but overall I required sixty sine waves for the finished piece so I used track bouncing to achieve this. This lead to a fairly low signal to noise ratio, but it seems sympathetic to the piece.
This was his idea behing vacuum tracks. Which I thought was fairly interesting.

 

First of all, I didn't use a computer on "Go Plastic". It was made with a Yamaha QY700, TX81 and FS1R, an Eventide DSP4000 and Orville, an Akai S6000 and a Mackie 16 channel desk. Second, precisely what is the "authentic Squarepusher sound"? Although you seem to have made up your mind, I would be entertained to see if anybody agreed with you or each other! Certainly if there was a consensus, I would feel like I had failed to fulfill my primary objective which is to rubbish the notion of the static artistic persona. The tendency to develop and change ideas, musical or otherwise is a hallmark of an active and intelligent mind -yet it is not prevalent in the sphere of music. Once musicians establish their "style", it appears that many feel compelled to take the safe option of sticking to it. The ironic thing is that repeating the same ideas over and over again gets pretty uninteresting and inevitably leads to stagnancy; thus their career is sabotaged by these very attempts to safeguard it. For me, to stick to some sort of style is to prematurely throw your artistic potential down the drain. Thus I assert that nobody could coherently state what the "Squarepusher sound" is. After recording the "Ultravisitor" material, I felt it was time to shift the compositional focus to simpler ideas.

 

This I also found interesting and funny.

      Squarepusher’s sonic masterpiece and debut mind-melter of an LP Feed Me Weird Things returns, reissued on double vinyl for the first time since its release on the 3rd of June 1996. Originally released on Rephlex, Aphex Twin himself noted on the sleeve notes of the original that Squarepusher makes “sound like sound never sounded before… Squarepusher gives us the SOUND of SOUND.” Now released on Warp 25 years later, the original album has been remastered from the original DATs and features two extra tracks on a 10 which were first released on the B-side of the Squarepusher Plays… EP and later featured on the original Japanese release of this album. The edition also includes a 16 page booklet with personal photographs, ephemera and notes from Tom Jenkinson, giving us an insight into his early career and into a time of true experimentation and innovation during the mid-90s.
      To say it was ‘ahead of its time’ feels unsatisfactory, and almost chronologically inaccurate - the wild array of styles it blends makes Feed Me Weird Things seem to exist in a time and space continuum all of its own. Maybe there really were UFOs over Leytonstone?
      Using the nascent energy and wildly experimental drum programming of jungle as its main rhythmic driving force, Feed Me Weird Things is celebrated for the way it was able to blend and cross-pollinate genres so effectively. Jazz, instrumental dub, trip-hop, UK hardcore, ambient synthesis, seventies cop funk and even a kind of mangled bossa nova are all tied magically together, transcending into a sound uniquely his own.
      Without delving into the many highlights and moments on the record, it serves as both a snapshot of one of the most vital, experimental periods in the history of UK electronic music and how the young Tom Jenkinson was pushing the boundaries of electronic music, into something well and truly weird, feeding into the canon of electronic music that resonated on into that decade and beyond.
