SYN002 - Various - "Strewth!" CD

Time capsule compilation of active electronic fuckedness of the time (2000-2001) from Australia and New Zealand. This was mistaken as a compilation of digital music at the time which was not actually correct for instance Dion Workman's track was made soley from the use of mini disc feedback (well in advance of oncoming trend of mixing desk feedback i may add!). Anyhow many names are now familiar and have successful careers in the absurd realm of sonic art. Others vapourised into the abstract abyss. Features:

Philip Samartzis
Matthew Thomas
Netochka Nezvanova
Darrin Verhagen
Dave Franzke
Rosy Parlane
Oren Ambarchi
Dion Workman.

Additional info:

Copies of this are still floating around, we pressed up 1000 and sold aprox 700. This sucker still ticks over which is neat.
The liner notes make referance to the Peter Carey short story 'The last days of a famous mime' which i was obsessed with at the time and still hold in high regard.
