➜ Our mix for Nothing But Hope And Passion

We were asked by the awesome guys at NBHAP to put together a mix, so of course we said yes and did something a little different…

We based the whole thing around the demise of HAL9000, the psychotic computer from Kubrick’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’, and peppered quotes from him throughout the mix.

We also included some new satan stuff in there, alongside a tracklist that takes in everything from Pink Floyd to Slipknot. Enjoy!

A lost piece of ‘satan history. Back in 2010, Matthew Britton set up a little project called ‘Duck Tapes’. The premise being that bands would release something exclusive, to be made into a single tape, and with all proceeds going to charity.

We contributed a bit of our back catalogue, and this number - a short demo I had of ‘Noise 1’, which I found bundled with some other stuff that didn’t quite make it to EP1.

You can still buy the collection on Bandcamp, and the proceeds still go to charity.

To be honest, music is only a small part of our influences. It’s about the places we visit, and live in, and also the people we meet

One of our biggest inspirations outside of music is the documentary film-maker Adam Curtis. I’ve been avidly watching his work since I happened across ‘The Power Of Nightmares’ on BBC2 in 2004 (watch it here), and with every series he does, a fascinating web of human emotion is unfurled through stories of power, corruption and lies.
I managed to interview him in 2011 for Drowned in Sound (which you can read here), about how he uses music and sound in his films, and he was such a lovely guy and full of all these brilliant stories. He also has a blog on the BBC, and each post acts like a bitesize documentary, exposing little webs of interconnected stories to explain modern phenomenon, such as why no-one trusts politicians anymore, which is the subject of his latest blog, posted today.
It’s brilliant, and you should go read it now. He even used a portion of one of my solo tracks called ‘Ichor’ in the 10th video down, and placed it behind a shot of Rupert Murdoch looking very, very shady.

We don’t really have any plan. Sometimes we’ll start with an idea and it ends up going on a massive tangent and the results aren’t anything like we thought they’d go.

Part of an interview we did for the website Echoes And Dust. Read the whole thing here:

Our first release in over four years has now sold out! Thank you to everyone who made it such a success :) Digital is still available through the bandcamp though, as we wouldn’t be that heartless to deprive you of at least a digital copy…

We finally located the masters to our debut release, 2006’s ‘EP1’. It’s never been released in high quality format before, mainly down to the fact that back in 2006, the internet wasn’t really a place for any high quality audio. There was no Bandcamp or Soundcloud or anything like that, which is why up until now, you’ve only ever been able to get it in really rubbish mp3 quality.

Anyway, we found all the raw files, mastered them properly, and present them to you now. There are also some release notes that I wrote, charting the making of the songs and how the band came about, available as a pdf in the package when you buy.

Enjoy!

I’ve been scouring the satan archives in celebration of our glorious return, and in amongst the myriad pictures on my hard drive (which I’ve been posting to our Twitter account) I found this pretty good quality video of us playing All Things But You Are Silent (from our debut album ‘Arrivals’) in a Leeds church many, many moons ago. Enjoy!
