Fwonk* regular – stalwart even! – Fudgedubnofunk helps celebrate our centenary by giving us not one, but two huge mixtapes of music released under Creative Commons licenses, much of it from the Fwonk* archives, including Inkraktare, Per, Heskin Radiophonic and Fudgedubnofunk himself.
The third part of our week of FWONK*100 celebrations presents a series of experimental audio manipulations of organic, acoustic improvisations. Kid Feardive – aka Cagey House – brilliant weaves his own acoustic recordings of pianos, banjos and more into a stunning sonic collage.
Fwonk*s favourite master of destructive reconstruction Katarrhaktes brings his own inimitable style to our second release of FWONK*100. This album takes tracks from the Fwonk* back catalogue and gives them the full on remix treatment – artists such as Bachelor Machines, Styli, Fudgedubnofunk, Imploded View and Kabukiman see their tracks ripped asunder, transformed, mutated and evolved into something new, something exciting and something chaotic.
Welcome to FWONK*100 – our hundredth release on the good ship Fwonk*! As we settle down, to read our congratulatory letter from HRH The Queen, we give – as the first salvo in a five-album salute – this massive compilation to you.
Featuring Fwonk* regulars and old-timers such as Heskin Radiophonic, Styli, Vasko The Pig, Katarrhaktes, Fudgedubnofunk, Organic Shift Man and Nemmo this also features – at long last! – the first Fwonk* recording from Norwegian progmeister and father-to-us-all Eivind Fivelsdal.
Fwonk* would especially like to thank Katarrhaktes for the going and building that amazing sculpture and making the artwork just for lil’ ol’ us.
