Dr Octagon

Moosebumps An Exploration Into Modern Day Horripilation

For the uninitiated, Moosebumps should be considered the true follow up to the critically acclaimed 1996 Dr. Octagon album Dr. Octagonecologyst, the strange and beautiful fruit of an inspired musical collaboration between legendary artists/producers Dan “The Automator” Nakamura, MC Kool Keith (Keith Thornton) and turntablist DJ Q-Bert (Richard Quitevis). Though Kool Keith continued to perform and release new material under the alias “Dr. Octagon” sporadically over the years – it was without the original partners Automator and QBert. For the first time in over two decades, Moosebumps has reunited the dream team in the studio and on the stage!

Also making a notable appearance on the Moosebumps album is rapper and frequent Automator collaborator, Del The Funky Homosapien, on the epic track “3030 Meets The Doc Pt.1”

The character Dr. Octagon is an extraterrestrial surgeon from Jupiter who uses space technology and primitive tools to perform medical procedures on his patients, some of whom die as he conducts his rounds, while others are murdered by his careless, barbaric acts.

Dan The Automator has worked with noteworthy artists including: Got a Girl, Miles Kane, DJ Shadow, Kasabian, Handsome Boy Modeling School, Gorillaz, Lovage, Head Automatica, Mike Patton, DJ Quest, Emily Wells, Depeche Mode, Pillowfight, Exodus, Primal Scream

Kool Keith has collaborated and worked with: Ultramagnetic MCs, The Cenobites, Godfather Don Tim Dog, KutMasta Kurt, Motion Man, Analog Brothers, Masters of Illusion, Jacky Jasper, Thee Undatakerz, The Diesel Truckers, Peeping Tom, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Chilly Chill, The Prodigy, Spazz, Princess Superstar, Nu:Tone, Esham, MF DOOM, L'Orange

DJ Q-Bert is one of the founding members of the band Invisibl Skratch Piklz, launched the Qbert Skratch University, an interactive online learning school and community for DJs, and has worked and collaborated with Mix Master Mike, DJ Shadow, Peanut Butter Wolf, A-Trak, Shortkut, Rasco, Dee Jay Bird, DJ Lord Wax, Herbie Hancock, The X-Ecutioners, Shock G, D-Styles, Motion Man, Praxis, N.A.S.A, L’Orange and Mr. Lif.

    Nine Inch Nails

    Add Violence EP

      Nine Inch Nails’ new EP, ADD VIOLENCE, was released digitally on July 21. The five-song collection is the second in a series of three related EPs. The first, Not The Actual Events, was released in December of 2016.

      ADD VIOLENCE finds the band (Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross) becoming more accessible and impenetrable at the same time. 

      The band’s fifth album overall, it was recorded in London with Paul Epworth, the acclaimed producer who began his career with the likes of Bloc Party and Death From Above but is perhaps most known for his more recent work with Adele and U2. Epworth helped The Horrors explore a diverse sound that’s their “most expansive and progressive music” yet. Anyone who has heard low-slung and massive comeback single Something To Remember Me By should be in no doubt that this is a band expertly ringing the changes once again.  It's a swaggering blend of synths, groove and rock and, to these ears  sounds like the Human League. With Faris actually singing!  Whilst this is a revelation, it's also quite necessary, as this time out The Horrors have written the best pop songs of their whole career. It's dark, multi-layered and shifting, but it's also, bizarrely whistle-able as fuck!  Gonna shock all the aficianados, but I think this is their best album yet!

      STAFF COMMENTS

      Andy says: What a surprise! Just when we thought The Horrors were losing their way, they come up with their best album yet. Firstly, the songs themselves are all superb, every single track, but the sound, the production is absolutely incredible! A deep, dark, moving blend of synths, electronics, guitars and grooves.

      British Sea Power

      Let The Dancers Inherit The Party

      International treasures British Sea Power release their first new material in four years. Recorded in Sussex, London and on the Isle of Skye, it follows the band’s five studio albums for the great Rough Trade Records.

      Let The Dancers Inherit The Party follows on from the 2013 album Machineries Of Joy - an album Q praised as “Their best record yet… a triumph of sophisticated rock engineering.” Let The Dancers Inherit The Party sees the band return to the kind of exhilarating and bright-minded guitar music that has seen them nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and which has drawn praise from David Bowie, Lou Reed and the National Maritime Museum, alongside Doctor Who, Harry Potter and Sherlock Holmes (Peter Capaldi, Daniel Radcliffe and Benedict Cumberbatch have all declared an interest in the band). 

      STAFF COMMENTS

      Barry says: Four years since their last full-length, British Sea Power return with another album full of grand orchestral swirls, jangling guitar melodies and galloping stadium-rock percussion. Fortified with chirping synths, soaring vocals and fist-pumping melodies, 'Let The Dancers...' is British Sea Power at their absolute finest.

      Underworld

      Barbara Barbara, We Face A Shining Future

      Underworld duo Karl Hyde and Rick Smith return with their first new studio album in six years. It’s fair to say that 'Barbara Barbara, We Face A Shining Future' finds the pair creatively reborn. Its seven tracks are fleet-footed, raw and spontaneous - a direct result of a strict working process in the studio that saw Smith and Hyde write entirely new music each time they met. That process has helped produce an album that stands alongside the recently reissued classics 'dubnobasswithmyheadman' and 'Second Toughest In The Infants'.

      So what’s there in the shining future? The opening punch of a two-note detuned bass riff crunching over relentless percussion; the elegiac swoop of strings as they stretch out across off-world electronics; a demented lupine howl that curls itself into an unshakeable earworm; celestial techno and South American acoustics; voices that warp into harmonic riffs; found lyrics that form fine-tuned monolgues; head music to dance to.

      EODM (Eagles Of Death Metal) is an American rock band from Palm Desert, California, formed in 1998 by best friends Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE/ KYUSS/ THOSE CROOKED VULTURES). Despite their band name, EODM is not a death metal band. The story goes that a friend was introducing Josh Homme to the death metal genre.

      When he played a song by the Polish band Vader and made a claim that the song was within the death metal genre, Homme then referred to Vader as “The Eagles of Death Metal”. After hearing this phrase, he wondered what a cross between the Eagles and a death metal band would sound like. With that, the band was born. 

      This is the acclaimed debut by Julian Cope his first solo effort after leaving the Teardrop Explodes and was originally released on Mercury records in 1984. It was written and recorded in 1983 at Julian's retreat in the village of Drayton Bassett, 2 of the songs featured were meant for the next Teardrop Explodes album (the original versions can be found on the aborted 3rd album Everybody Wants to Shag The Teardrop Explodes).

      Although World Shut Your Mouth retained the up-tempo pop of The Teardrop Explodes, it was also an introspective and surreal work. Cope's contemporary vulnerability and childhood preoccupations informed the songs on the album, most notably on songs like "Head Hang Low" and "Sunshine Playroom".

      Most of the album's tracks featured former Teardrops drummer Gary Dwyer, other contributors included lead guitarist/producer Steve Lovell , late-period Teardrops bass guitarist Ronnie François and the Dream Academy oboist Kate St. John.

      This version contains a bonus disc of B-sides and sessions as well a new note by long time cope publicist Mick Houghton all contained in a 24 page booklet with rare photos and memorabilia
