After some promising teasers at soundcloud by Cousin Silas, a gifted guitarist and musician from Huddersfield the full album of his collaboration with Glove Of Bones is now available for free at Bristol’s digital dizzy Netlabel. Some more info and the possibility to obtain a limited hardcopy can be found easily per the Glove Of Bones home.
Which is actually how I found about these as there are more interesting publications by A4+ of Glove Of Bones heading into the ambient / experimental / electronica and non-electronica field with a very own and original approach to enjoy either as “name your price” digital release or as physical well crafted, handmade and obviously limited art editions.
Tom Ellard writes “Severed Heads has refused to make new music since 2007, as there was no compelling reason to do so. But when asked by Ears Have Ears to perform a new 20m piece on air at FBi Radio, it came to mind that BUGHLT had recently offered to cut a 20m long acetate. That the acetate lathe once made discs for radio play inspired a piece formed from 78 rpm records that we would both perform and cut to disc. We’re pleased to present the first new SH tracks in 9 years. It’s Stewart’s first writing credit too!”

A great find on the interwebs, a full length interview with Tom Ellard (Head of ‘Heads) talking pre-digital age history and anecdotes like hanging out with SPK – actually published already in January 2013 @ Resident Advisor really worth a listen.

Late November finally one of my all-time favourite tape only releases got reissued; the 1992 HAX tape ‘Carceri’ of Marco Milanesion’s DsorDNE project – freshly remastered by the Maestro himself. A personal highlight of 2015.
On another note, concerning his more current works the renowned portugese label Thisco issued an EP consisting of 3 tracks constructed out of original soundwork developed by (r), as Fabrizio Modonese Palumbo his partner in crime at O.F.F. audioprod & studio in Turin, Italy.

After some of the usual and some unusual delays SP 006 is finally released. It was originally intended as a Summer release, something to turn up the volume and hitting the streets even bumpin’ out of your stereo’s in the sunshine. It finally saw the light of early Autumn late September.
CyborCosis are a transgender duo from Kidderminster, Worcestershire, UK producing music together since years and giving it all away freely in the spirit of the early Rave and Techno scene.
