Carbon Based Lifeforms new album is out October 6th. Art Direction and Graphic Design by me. Check this space for behind the scenes footage.
This was released 12 years ago, can you believe that? 2001.
That same year a friend and me went to see The Locust, The Oath, JR Ewing and Kid Commando at Meeths, a youth club in Gothenburg, Sweden. The small venue was packed with kids selling their DIY stuff, stuff from their DIY-distro and so on.
I remember that all four bands got the crowd moving, but The Oath was the fiercest. The crowd even got into a (small) circle pit, which eventually resulted in the vocalist getting stuck in the middle with the microphone chord wrapped around his leg. Great fun.
Another fun thing was the fact that Justin Pearson (of The Locust) was bobbing his head to the music, as if he was playing in a 60s pop band. Awesome.
And the vinyl? I still like some of the tracks very much, for example “KooKooKa Fuk-U”, “Intensify” and “Feel Good Hit of the Fall”.
Listen to !!! – !!! (vinyl tracklist).
Look at the typography on this one, tacky huh? 😀
I bought this piece of vinyl many years ago in a local record shop called Pennies from Heaven, which primaraly carries jazz records. I actually haven’t listened to the A-side (Don’t cry for me Argentina). The name of the artist is Tania, but the track Automatic Lover sounds just like Dee D Jackson. Weird.
