For years I’ve done my best to dance along as fast as I can to the duo’s fascinating mixture of blips, bleeps, bumps and bloops. Over two albums, endless digital files and countless remixes I’ve always wanted to know how a pair this layered and dense in its sound could possibly pull off what they do on record live as a quintet.
Now I have seen for myself in the WPRB studios…and it is crazy.
As someone once wrote somewhere sometime:
The result of this balance parallels along the various lines of PIL’s Metal Box, The Orb’s Pomme Fritz EP, the tropicalia Dada-ism of Tom Ze, and Eno & Cluster. Living / breathing electronic music made beyond the computer screen for bigger screens, [Pink Skull] could easily soundtrack a remake of Videodrome as well as it could a Kubrickian classic.
