"Behind a thatched divider" is Dainty Deathy Recordings' official label launching compilation of artists and sounds from Canada, The United Kingdom and The USA that Dainty Deathy hopes to focus on in the future.
BATD collects from the bedroom musicologist playing with 4-tracks, samplers, computers and experimental approaches influenced by an ever evolving musical environment. Most of the artists here are displaying personal material first their time. These include: THE BALKY MULE, THE SCIENTIFICS, LILLICO BUILT INSTRUMENTS PIEDMONT SORPID, CHRIS COLE, RAMEN, Les HASHISHIENS, BARTOC and NOOK.
Hosted by mock band "THE SINUSES", a group of three anonymous musicians who never had an intention for their music nor did they ever have the notion that they were a band, suddenly find their material edited into short and bizarre musical interludes leading the listener though this compilation.
THE BALKY MULE:
Bristol, UK artist Sam Jones has spent many hours working with sound and sound devices. He just cant seem to use a microphone in a traditional sense. His work as The Balky Mule leads him away from his ongoing duties with respected Bristol groups Movietone and Crescent and into his bedroom where he warms up with a cup a tea before defying the laws of physics in order to record various instruments and objects. "Stations to" comes from The Balky Mule's debut self titled CDR release on Sam and his brother's own Archipelago label.
A group of machines and sentients at play in the world of sound. The noise they make is murky at best. Supervised by Portland, Oregon songwriter Eliot Rose, The Scientifcs (referring to the various cheesy electronic gadgetry used to develop his sounds) display pure Lo-fi at its best. If there wasn't such a machine as the 4-track recorder, people like Eliot would be hard to hear.
LILLICO BUILT INSTRUMENTS:
Noted for his creativity in the instruments he builds (why one of them even has a flywheel from a tape transport to drive its 2 strings - "Hurdy Gurdy in corrugated aircraft hanger"), Ken J. Lillico is either busy developing these guitar like contraptions or show casing them on his hosted radio program in Killaloe, Ontario. Tinged with a rather bluesy feel, the 3 selections found here all fine examples of just some of his stringed creations.
Using ambience conjoined experimentally with rock-debris, South Slocan, BC native CJ Einar (Piedmont Sorpid) delivers many delights in what is seemingly cheeky electronic music trying not to be. No stranger to Dainty Deathy, CJ has had his 2 CD's (The sugars of the eyes, Estes places) previously released on the label. "Goon runny" is a remixed version of "Goon chimes" from the April 2000 release "Estes places ".
Chris is more commonly attached to his roles with Bristol, UK groups Movietone and Crescent before taking it upon himself to invest in his solo interests. It took him many months to learn his new computer based workstation and combine it with his many instrumental talents in order to finally mill out his first completed piece of music "Just need someone to know that this is me", at which point Dainty Deathy snatched it up for this compilation.
Another artist from the Bristol area who knows that the use of a computer can see it become very dominating as it takes over from the music's original intent. As Ramen, Ben O' Leary practices the idea that in keeping his music clean and clear and through the simple use of a computer as an editing tool the overall sound effects generated are much more satisfying.
Working together to harness the prairie winds rushing through the suburbs of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Wanti Dhingra (aka Static, aka Craig Allen) and Hryhory Udod (aka D-Limonene, aka Brad Wilson) combine cheep gadgets with crafty gimmickry as Les Hashishiens. Eventually blown far from their homes and each other, Wanti now finds himself alone with his ideas in Victoria, BC as Hryhory constructs a musical play space in Nelson, BC. Expect their noise machines and effects to continue running in new directions along with Dainty Deathy's help.
Bartoc's conceptual summary will do no justice conformed to a brief paragraph on this page. We therefore unwillingly force you to redirect to the source of their ideas >Contact
Is the result of Brighton, UK resident Andrew Clare moving into a flat with thin walls. Unable to continue with his louder home recording projects he put his computer to use remixing random guitar outfit 'SMALL THINGS'. Somewhere along the line the whole thing morphed into nook. Andrew has been operating just outside of music for over a decade; playing on both the improv and rock sides of the fence while working with UK ensembles IM BEING GOOD, SMALL THINGS, BALD MERMAID, CLARENCE PALMER, THE THIRTEEN GHOSTS (with DEREK BAILEY & THURSTON MOORE), and a whole host of others. To aid these many musical efforts he has been running his own INFINITE CHUG label since 1993.
