Swirling dots

At this rate, the Clock DVA revival can't be far off... A characteristically brilliant Philip Sherburne links a host of currently swirling dots & helps explain why FACT are hosting Ike Yard, Judy Nylon &, even more improbably, Eyeless in Gaza, as well as being deeply implicated in the painfully fashionable but also quite decent Raime (on Blackest Ever Black - Interview/mnml ssgs).

These ancient ears were brought up on post-punk - ah's too. So a newly dark aesthetic that lauds Cabaret Voltaire &, say, Crispy Ambulance (talking of improbable...) is both a welcome swerve & a potentially useful provocation to original attachments.

Note to self: try to listen, not pontificate in face of championing of stuff that didn't seem to count so heavily at the time & whose relative obscurity is probably part of its capital & cachet now...apart from avoiding sanctimonious prickdom, your reward will be treats like these:

Important: LMYE only makes music available that artists/labels have chosen to share freely. Let us know if something here shouldn't be.
