This show is entirely based on a Guardian music article from
October this year.
From Arsedestroyer To Zoogz Rift : 50 underground albums you've
never even heard of
We took this headline as a challenge.
We'd heard of just 3. Of those 3, only 1 had provided a song for
a previous show of ours. Way back in 2010, the wonderful My
Time by Roberto Cacciapaglia & Ann Steel made the playlist.
1/50 Ain't Bad
That left 47 albums to listen to, 47 reviews to research and 47
backstories to read. That's the thing with underground albums -
chances are there's a backstory. You know the kind of thing. The
entire pressing of a recording that samples sumo bouts 1
made in a small house on Skye 2 is warped on a meat
packing machine 3 but eventually released on a limited
edition cassette at a Science Fiction festival 4 shortly
before the artist drives off in a VW Beetle never to be heard from
30 made the final cut. Some are the lowest of lo-fi, some
are the most gleeful of rackets (we're looking at you Harry Pussy),
some are plain odd and most defy our technically limited attempts
to blend them seamlessly into a mix.
Same old Joint really.
