hyper-zonal

We’re pretty excited about Kevin Martin and Justin Broadrick’s new project launching at Supersonic . . .  Joking aside, Kev ‘n’ Justin have made so much remarkable music together and apart over the last 20-30 years it makes my head hurt to think about it and my ears feel old and beaten. Their various aliases could probably fill the whole festival bill and they’re going to be kicking off another one Zonal. Having officially ended Techno Animal, Zonal is whatever comes next although so far there’s no hint what it might be I can’t help think it’ll be loud and intense, even if it’s ambient. Last time he was at Supersonic The Bug played live with Dylan Carlson for the first time launching the now world beating The Bug vs Earth project. A bonus tune here from the album features, guess who? JKB putting some vocals over ‘Snakes Vs Rats’ for ‘Dog’. By the time this performance rolls around Justin will have just put out a second album from his own trans atlantic collaboration with Sun Kil Moon, while his JK Flesh stuff has abandoned the guitar altogether for dysfunctional industrial techno. So, probably not like any of that. Maybe they’ll try their hands at electro swing or something.

Panic & Carousels Episode 41 – Perfect Secrecy Forever

Here we are then, Episode 41 archived for your convenience, stream at the top, download for your pod thing by clicking the title here. The urge to call it Monkey Ultravox was understandably strong but Perfect Secrecy Forever has an echo of Pavement in there that won through. Or something, whatever. Tracklist below and so on and so forth. Post-Rock/arts council metal, oddball techno, some great bits of electronic tinkering and a hearty portion of Kevin Martin. Lovely.

perfect secrecy forever

panic41

Episode 41 arrives amid the sorry news that basic.fm is to end. In the meantime we’ve got some new shows for you anyway, this being the first. Named for a track from the splendid Pye Corner Audio/Not Waving split release. There’s a considerable portion of music from Kevin Martin in his many guises on this show, ‘Cool Out’ was supposed to start the ‘Happy Summer’ show last month and somehow got forgot, so it’s there starting things off. There’s a fair amount of post rock/post-metal type business, some techno type stuff and a little cameo for Michael Gira with Pigface. All kinds of good things then. Sit back and enjoy.
