Die Trip Computer Die! - " Sibling Family Research." (Its War Boys? Cassette 1995-ish)

Various ex-homosexuals(the famous DIY band not those of a certain sexuality I might add) formed a trio called "Die Trip Computer Die!" in the mid-1990's,led by noise decomposer/ video artist Lepke Buchwater (Milk from Cheltenham) with Xentos 'Fray' Bentos (also known as Pete the Drummer, Dr. Shagnasty and 'Bubbles' in the Beyonce fan club) and Ted Barrow. inventor of various ur-instruments, most notably 'The Baxtertron' which was an electronic 'black box' constructed inside a recently vacated Ferrero Rocher box.
This was released well before any of their more famous cd's on the Alcahol label,and was apparently one of many,so I don't know much about it,except that it is beamed from outer space magnificence on a c-60.
The sound is a sectioned version of Plunderphonics, sampling snatches of elevator muzak,and layering it against dodgy glitches and curcuit bending. There definately lurks a sense of humour,inherent in all homosexuals related material, it even sounds ominously like mid period residents on some tracks ("Dat Wuz Da Beat Dat Bwoke Mah Heart")

Me too ! And WHAT A GREAT RESTART, fantastic unknowns (to me:-)
"Dat wuz da beat..." is a f++++n killer song.It has everything from Can,NoWave to even early HipHop feel.
This could be released today.(And I´d buy the 7", if there was one.)(And purposely dust it with the cement from the floor this party must be happennig (I can even smell it) imagine the nice crackling...)
Hope the whole tape is equally fantastic.Thank you !!!!!!!!

Cheers Holly,
so glad you found me too!
'Give' and 'up' are two words absent from my dictionary.

Yes,it should be the only record in the charts in my opinion.....but, as always, it ain't and never will be.This we should be thankful for. Furthermore I doubt Die Trip Computer Die would want to be in the charts.
I have more DTCD in the vaults if you're interested.CD-r stuff as opposed to good ol' cassette.
