The Big Oaks The Big Oaks
Alienation, confusion, anger, loneliness, and (especially) belligerent humour.
cathode Cathode
Crisp, warm, minimalist exquisite luminous organic chamber electronics.
d_rradio d_rradio
An absurd mix of the most joyous moments in your favourite late-night records and yet sound simultaneously like nothing else.
Dressed In Wires Dressed In Wires
Laptronica, Post-Gabba, Blip-Hop, Glitch-Hop, Chip-Hop, 8-bitronica, Wreckstep, Kronk, Bootmash, Breakcunt, Dub-Bass Splattercore, Harsh Clunge, Fuckstep, Thugstep, Powerpop, Noisewhore, and Wrongtronica, not in any order.
Jazzfinger Jazzfinger
They start noisily. They incessantly build layers of white noise onto of layers of unwieldy dissonance. They recreate an auditory Armageddon with amps. They end noisily.
Lachrymose One Lachrymose One
Pop melodies, attention-demanding dual vocals plus the requisite amount of off kilter changes and guitar noise.
Moira Stewart Moira Stewart
Very simplistic, upbeat, fun, shambolic electro/guitar pop.
Mushi Mushi Mushi Mushi
A swarm of very unhappy bumblebees and a mad old analogue computer having a fight with a drummer.
Necro Deathmort
"The aural equivalent of Satan's own crystallized jizzum."
The Retail Sectors The Retail Sectors
Guitar-driven melodic elements, building in intricacy and volume until the immaculate devastation of the drums kick in, taking off on a flight into a vast sky of loneliness.
Sansava Sansava
Simple, uplifting, beautiful harmonies interspersed with blissed out ambient drone, built from gentle gushes, subtle chord progressions and extremely minimalist percussion.
See My Sound See My Sound
A hypnotic whirlpool of affected guitars, anchored by an undertow of dubby bass and pounding drums.
Summer Night Air Summer Night Air
Minimal drones with a sense of naivety and innocence that's so beautiful it could ooze out of your hi-fi speakers and drip onto your carpet.
Tempelhof Tempelhof
Lush, downtempo beauty; downpours of cymbal-like hiss and mournful keys, shuffling beats, low, impassioned vocals, and dynamic crashing rhythms and mechanical shifts and slices.
Warm Digits Warm Digits
Ear-troubling krautrock rhythm 'n' noise, free improv drumming, no-wave guitar and Radiophonic electronics with a disseminating Sturm und Drang.

CathodeCrisp, warm, minimalist exquisite luminous organic chamber electronics are the order of the day here from Cathode. Logo Magazine said "carefully-coiled clicks and cuts are flooded under percussion that even R2D2 would struggle to accurately compute, where the key is always in the melody and those luscious rolling rhythms", and John Peel declared him as "first class, I'd say".

Cathode has two albums out on Expanding Records to add to his scrapbook of previous outings for tasteful independent electronica imprints including Static Caravan, 555 and Awkward Silence. His release on Distraction Records is the divine Chronophobia featuring Caroline Thorp on vocal duties, twinned alongside Economic Growth.

Chronophobia (with Caroline Thorp) / Economic Growth (DIST7)


Eschewing the routine trappings of "tunes" and "melodies" in favour of drone and a strong cinematic sensibility, Jazzfinger bring to you their own unique brand of visual and aural exorcism. They start noisily. They incessantly build layers of white noise onto of layers of unwieldy dissonance. They recreate an auditory Armageddon with amps. They end noisily. They also unleashed 600 live crickets onto the audience at a gig once. They have dozens and dozens of LPs, tapes, CDRs and lathe cuts out on a multitude of DIY labels, and they've finally released a 100-only double-A side - Beachy Head / Moccocan Car Park (D. Harwood remix) (DIST23) on our humble little label. Ladies and gentlemen: Jazzfinger.

Component ImageComponents are larger extensions that produce the major content for your site. Each component has one or more "views" that control how content is displayed. In the Joomla administrator there are additional extensions such as Menus, Redirection, and the extension managers.

Media ImageModules are small blocks of content that can be displayed in positions on a web page. The menus on this site are displayed in modules. The core of Joomla! includes 24 separate modules ranging from login to search to random images. Each module has a name that starts mod_ but when it displays it has a title. In the descriptions in this section, the titles are the same as the names.

Media ImageTemplates give your site its look and feel. They determine layout, colours, typefaces, graphics and other aspects of design that make your site unique. Your installation of Joomla comes prepackaged with three front end templates and two backend templates. Help

Plugin ImagePlugins are small task oriented extensions that enhance the Joomla! framework. Some are associated with particular extensions and others, such as editors, are used across all of Joomla. Most beginning users do not need to change any of the plugins that install with Joomla. Help
