Thanks to our man Chris Farrell for putting on the Idle Hands & Blackest Ever Black party in Bristol last weekend, and for bringing the janitor over. Had a lot of fun, which isn’t something I say very often these days.
Compliments especially to Rhythmic Theory (first time I’ve ever seen him play out: murderer) and Ossia (pictured above), whose incredible set of breakneck techno was not at all what I expected, but exactly what I wanted to hear. Thank you Bristol people: Richard Carnes, Andy Payback, Ruffhouse, Alex Tape-Echo, Shanti Celeste, Daisy Moon, Benji Semtek. Already looking forward to next time, if there is one. There certainly should be.
Rhythmic Theory’s release on our A14 imprint, Forgotten Realms, is out now; we’re currently out of stock but should have a handful more copies. Ossia’s ‘Red X’ 12″ for Blackest is now sold out at source, but you can still find it in shops at more or less RRP; the title track is finally available digitally, but only as part of our Radio Caliban: Blackest Ever Black “Singles” 2015 compilation (also available on cassette).
