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.

This collection is the introductory début by Imploded View, aka Jerome McCormick. This release is not forward in going backwards with an exciting blend of experimental electronic music. Although the music here could be refered to as IDM, it’s not a term that Imploded View is comfortable with. There’s a whole manner of synth washes, retro in style for the most part, and hooks which are both catchy and un-catchy at the same time. Speed-wobbles in slow motion feature thanks to the incorporation of a 1/4 inch Reel-to-Reel tape machine in the creation process.
Please note that due to legal reasons, we have had to remove most of the tracks from this EP. We apologise to all our listeners.
