The Return Of Something Formerly Known As Something Else – Taped Zero Four Slash Nine Nine
Released 30 April 1999 on CD-R, now available digitally on bandcamp.
Lots and lots (and lots) of DIY cutting-and-pasting of sounds & samples, and then some more chopping and slicing of beats and bits… (still: some guitars here and there!). A strange & naieve collision of avant garde, drum’n’bass, industrial and nonsense.
This album was one of the contenders of ‘Demopoll’, where demos were played on Belgian radio station Studio Brussel, somewhere in 2000, then presented by Roos Van Acker.
This even included a small interview-by-telephone live on radio. Ouch… talking about my music is not my strongest point, to say at least… But hey, I got the project name ‘The Return Of Something Formerly Known As Something Else’ fully announced on national radio, so that’s an achievement too! 🙂
Also funny: when another candidate was asked what he thought of this other demo, his reaction was: ‘a bit strange, isn’t it?’ – which totally nails it of course!
