This week, we’re delighted to present what might be the most off-the-wall FACT mix in the series’ illustrious history.
To mark the release of his second full-length Punish, Honey, out today on Tri Angle, Young Echo alumnus Vessel has stitched together just over 40 minutes of, well, material, in a session that’s not so much a mix as a voyage into the darkest corners of our collective subconscious.
Drawing on the broad influences behind his new record, Seb Gainsborough’s set sees vicious drones and glazed incantations jostle with wyrd jazz-punk, experimental electronics and in-the-red guitars via the likes of tape looper Jason Lescalleet, cult noise-rockers Harry Pussy, industrial originals :zoviet*france:, Houston punks Culturcide and the magickal Coil. It’s as eccentric as it is eclectic, and likely to delight and bamboozle in equal measure.
And who can argue with a tracklist that includes gems like ‘I’m Gay’, ‘Ape Fist’, ‘Hating My Father’ and the Minutemen’s righteous ‘Dreams Are Free, Motherfucker!’? Steady now.
