Year of Release: 2020
Label: Polytechnic Youth
Info: Brand New Red Vinyl 10″, Limited to 300 copies
Polytechnic Youth return to action with a brace of killer 10” mini LPs. First up -and having already attained BBC 6music airtime- is the fabulous “Witched On” 10” from Polytechnic Sound Archive.
PSA are the in-house recording ensemble for the Polytechnic Youth label; featuring members of French duo Groupuscule, Volume Groop, XYZips and others.
The idea behind Witched On was to create a library album of horror scores for Film, Radio and Home cine productions for people to freely use at their leisure. Channeling a shared love of Throbbing Gristle, DAF, Hot Butter and Tod Dockstader (Quatermass) the group set about creating as many pieces as possible which were whittled down for inclusion on this fabulous 10”. Equal parts avant-electronics, organ led ritual vibes and propulsive horror disco; the album is already picking up plays by Gid Coe at Radio 6. Not for the faint hearted.
Pressing of 300 on red vinyl.
Disc: Mint Unplayed
