Hi Folks

It's been a long time since I posted here. I wanted to share something new I've been working on, a new EP I just released on May 1st that I hope people here would really enjoy. 

This is a vivid reimagined vision of a time when Irish Country legend Big Tom and his Mainliners were leaders of 'The Peoples Temple' in Monaghan back in the late 70's and would travel around the country summoning new followers for the sacred dances around stone circles and beaches. His followers would come down the Four Country Roads in droves, the Smithwicks would be flowing and be tainted with thee auwl Magick Mushroomz, the masses would be waltzing and jiving around large fires howling to the skies as the sun rises as the big beat keeps on thumping.

The music in this EP is a mixutre of old and new music Shammen Delly produced in his 'Dunge' up north in Donegal, which sounds like a surreal noise fest of oneric distorted whirling warbly synth chords and thoughts of 70's German Krautrock emotional mellotrons, blending in hidden country bass lines, and a wash of psychedelic industrialistic rhythms and downtempo decrepit trip-hop big beats, and organic recordings of piano,harmonium, and personal tape recordings from Friel's family members throughout the past taken from an old tape the producers mother recorded when she was a kid.

There's a tapemix I made from Tascam Portastudio 424mkIII sessions titled 'An Evocation to Tonduff' for your listening pleasure also.

Happy days, Thank you BCM and Chassis. It's been a long time on here and it's great to be back, good to see some heads I haven't seen in a while! :) All this free time during the pandemic and browsing through here was a nostalgia fest within itself. I hope you all dig it, it's a very playful bunch of tunes and tape footerings.

I want to share this tapemix I did in November past full of original material and some sampled fuck abouts of Michael Jackson's Human Nature (that's probably been sampled to death but by fuck it still has that power to lift your hair out of your body).

Have to say I knew of Big Tom but he was a bit before my time.

He was 'Thee' Big Man of all Big Men back then, Granny's and Granda's all over Ireland would've waltzed to the big man himself.

This is sounding really good. Early MbM vibes. 

 

 

Happy days Hugh Mughnus, thanks a million! That comment made me a happy chappy. I am a big MbM head, I adore all their work. This ep definitely was influenced by a lot of Wax Trax Records stuff, I wanted to get that grit and thump of that chicago industrial sound mixed in with nods to My Bloody Valentine and Boards of Canada. I hope you all heard the bonus track within 'Far Far Away, On a Donegal Shore'. (Influenced by NIN's Broken, if only I had a cd version to get 99 tracks fitted within haha)

I'm just over the border at the moment, give me a shout!

Always shoot me a wee message when your border hopping, I'm always here in Donegal but sometimes in Belfast, but I've not been there since playing in The 343 supporting Percolator mixing from a tascam portastudio and marantz portable tape recorder mixing old home records my mum made when she was a kid and other tape sessions, bonkers night just before xmas.
