Just heard this on Do or DIY’s latest podcast which as usual is amazing and wonderful *shelves current podcast and starts again ;-)* and it’s great to hear some new music from Kevin Blechdom (of Bastard fave cover ‘I Will Always Love You’ with Dsico), also reunited with Blevin Blechtum as Blechtum from Blechtum where it all began (or bleched?). Watch for a whole load of beautiful blechdumb.
They both deserve to be a lot more known…amazing that the US creates wonderfully quirky electronic musicians and experimental musicians which actually have wider appeal, and mostly they get ignored at home unless they’re hipsters like Animal Collective, MTV like Devo or just MEH like Girl Talk (thinking people like Matmos, Negativland, Residents, ECC, Cex, Venetian Snares – ok he rarely has wide appeal, Chicks on Speed hey they’re nearly all in SF/Bay Area…or had to move to Europe. Hmmm.).
I’m guessing unless the quirks fit into some branding strategy the US media and music industry will want to lop them off, whereas here the quirks and non-homogeneity is what makes it cool.
Anyway enough ranting and more blech:
Love the plants and beekeeper masks, LOL.
