Mike Banks interview 2018

This is an amazing and very frank interview with Mike Banks (UR), Dimitri Hegemann and Carola Stoiber (both Tresor). They speak about Drexciya about 1hr. 23mins for well over 15 mins (more about Gerald Donald during the Rob Hood section too).

This is an awesome reboot of Andrew Duke's 1999 interview with James Stinson.

Great new Stinson/Donald mix with some obscurities. New edition of The Beat dedicated to them also.

The Black Replica 12" is now available from Metaphysik's Bandcamp as a digital download and from their site on vinyl (w/download code).

Drexciya are included as one of Adult's influences here.

The debut EP from Ectomorph, Subsonic Vibrations (1995), is being re-pressed on Interdimensional Transmissions. Gerald Donald was involved with this right at the beginning with Brendan M. Gillen. While his name does not appear on the credits, 'Skin' appears to have his fingerprints all over it. Available for pre-order now at Bandcamp.

James Stinson 2002 phone interview w/ Derek Beere (Future BPM)

Derek Beere has kindly sent me the phone interview recording that he made with James Stinson back in early 2002 for Future BPM. This tape has not been heard before and been in Derek's safe keeping for the last 16 years and we both felt it should be heard by fans. It's a fascinating, often humorous and quite inspiring listen. You can still read the text version at this link too.
