Various Vegetables Radio #54 | Boring House Music

In the current episode of Various Vegetables Radio we present very boring house music. It begins half-way promising with some jazzy approaches. A bit of Kraut, everything very cuddled. But then it becomes really bad. Cheaply produced, monotonous, noisy. Here and there singing, which sounds like the announcement of an answering machine. Everything very boring. We hope you want to get bored with us. Tune in! And eat your vegetables !!!

Mixed & Mashed by your very untalented DJ Octobird

Batfinks “Mosisac” out on Caoutchou Records

Earthy, tricky and yet impulsive. Batfinks release on Caoutchou Records is a sick mosaic of sound called Mosisac. So much grown potential which will sadly not be able to grow on, as he passed away last year.

His Mates from Caoutchou say:

Batfinks became part of the Caoutchou fam since he contributed the track 'Shamalaalaa' for the second Rubber Beats compilation back in '09. 5 years later we released 'Bibobleyboo' on our label and early 2016 he sent us new material; an album named 'Mosisac'. Later that year we heard the sad news that Ste had passed away.

Batfinks was a mysterious character on whom we never really got a hold. When we talked, our conversations ended up in neologistic gibberish and laughter which was simultaneously amazing and funny. When we asked about his background to compose a promo text for his album this is what he wrote to us:

"Learnt my first chords when I was 4 on a Casio MT-65 on the toilet which was very satisfying I must say. Learnt how to play 808 State and Sonz of Da Loop Era tunes when I was 7 with a mate of mine, Jim Noir. Spent a lot of time with my dad and brother going to bluegrass gigs and old folks homes. Influences were mainly old school rave music when I was younger but then got into Gong, The Orb, Orbital, Autechre and that. A lot of jazz and world music stuff which was through my brother and his mates."

Mosisac shows us a side of Batfinks which we haven't heard before. Instead of the usual Batfinksesque sound we are now introduced to a collection of grim and gloom-ridden tracks although his typical sound is still imminent. In his dad's words: 'The musical version of Hieronymus Bosch paintings... it's a profound vision of someone on a path'

We love you, Batfinks. Forever in our hearts and ears.
