white noise

we only just discovered them and already we're ripping them off on the album. delia derbyshire was in the band. it's really, really fucking good stuff. really, really dark and psychadelic, shoegazy and scary.

made in 1969. from a production point of view it leaves me slack-jawed, you dont hear anything this layered and edited again until digital audio workstations came in in the 90s.

it's the sound of film noir, porn, lsd, horror, dr who, 60s production, tape loops, neve compression, valves....

This is what happened when I put "Here come the fleas" on an LWP CD.

yeah, I have Electric Storm. It's quite something. Came to my attention via The Sounds of Monsterism Island compilation.

The Alchemists of Sound documentary can be seen on youtube. If anyone hasn't done so already.

i managed to miss all of those previous posts. well, it's good that i've discovered them at this stage. we've changed our approach to recording. the more limited you are technologically, the more creative you are.

I'm not sure it comes across there that I liked it.

That's either awesome or extremely worrying.

Anyway, after Laz got me onto White Noise I've been listening to the album a lot. I always enjoy putting "My Game of Loving" on mixtapes to create uncomfortable silences in conversation. (Okay, I only did that once.)

Love a lot of the late sixties/early seventies synth pioneers in general. Any tips people can give me?

White Noise were pretty much anti-synth. Derbyshire didn't like them.

that's not true. white noise pioneered the ems synthi - which we've been using too. the ems makes all the tweeting and sucking and squelchy noises. you hear it all over dr who and bbc sound effects tapes.

also, you can hear synths of other kinds on almost every part of the electric storm album. that might be the actual founder of white noise that worked on them while delia did the tape loops.
