1st of Octobird

Happy 1st of Octobird!!!

You may know him under his monikers Loom or Kinskop. You may know him as part of the Various Vegetables Crew. You may have realized him as the eight-armed Discjuicer and and Soundbird on the Various Vegetables Radio Show.

....and now you may realize, that he makes tunes, too.

A little more to the Floor! A little more Acid drowned.
And as the 1st October is  a holiday from now on, you can download the thing for free.

Wave your Tentaclles in the air and say "Oh, Yeah!"

Anyway!
Less words, more cowbells ... just go and download.

Various Vegetables Radio #55 | Whitey on the Moon making Politics of Doom

Media reports just in claiming that the President of the United States of Demon Crazy personally visited the Moon colony to assess the situation on-site. His first reports have just returned and he tells of the discovery of a forgotten race of white skinned people. Upon first contact, they agreed to support the President in ruling Planet Earth from a central lunar government. As responsible journalists, we now ask: Is it time to Fact-Check this story?
Nope…

Instead, we accompany this incredible event musically.
Following the cycles of space and time, we will lead you through the following stages

seduction, destruction, revolution and re-awakening

with musical examples from psychedelic rock, jazz and hip-hop.
For this project, we had the great fortune to be able to open a channel to a parallel universe.
From this, guests from past and present, such as Captain Beefheart, Sun Ra, Gill Scott Heron, Nina Simone, Mr Lif and Roots Manuva will tell their side of the story.

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.
