Flavor of the Week #14

( ;D --> DJ/Producer, R. Elliott has been producing since the 1980s, starting on his trusted Commodore 64, as well as producing with a friend Paul Doherty on a range of analogue hardware. First getting his music played out in a club called 'Tekno Dreem' in Peterborough, back in 1989. Since then, he teamed up with several other artists as a producer, forming groups such as Digital Kaos, Mysticism, & the better known Brainstorm Crew.

Englands Hidden Reverse

( ;D --> Client are a futurist British musical group from London, England. They are most popular in Germany where they have had most commercial success. They combine Scandinavian airline hostess uniforms with glamour-girl aesthetics and harsh electronics to create a sound reminiscent of early forays into electronic sound manipulation and New Wave. Their uniforms have become their trademark. Client was the first act signed to Depeche Mode keyboardist Andy Fletcher's record label, Toast Hawaii/(Mute). They have toured with the likes of Depeche Mode and Erasure and have been described as a combination of "The Pet Shop Boys at their most commercial and The Human League at their most obscure".)

The Residents
( ;D --> Over the course of a recording career spanning several decades, the Residents remained a riddle of Sphinx-like proportions; cloaking their lives and music in a haze of willful obscurity, the band's members never identified themselves by name, always appearing in public in disguise -- usually tuxedos, top hats and giant eyeball masks -- and refusing to grant media interviews. Drawing inspiration from the likes of fellow innovators including Harry Partch, Sun Ra, and Captain Beefheart, the Residents channelled the breadth of American music into their idiosyncratic, satiric vision, their mercurial blend of electronics, distortion, avant-jazz, classical symphonies and gratingly nasal vocals reinterpreting everyone from John Philip Sousa to James Brown while simultaneously expanding the boundaries of theatrical performance and multimedia interaction.)
( ;D --> the iconic avant-garde American performance art collective The Residents has written music for Grace Ellen Barkey and Needcompany! The Residents leapt onto her shoulders and grabbed hold of her unruly hair, and then they galloped off together into another dimension and danced a divine duet. Just imagine: The Residents, the masters of weird, and Grace Ellen Barkey, the president of the movement against melancholy.)
