A shattered window. 7.5 artists. An epic journey: An omnipresent fuck you between the tympanic membranes. The Fuck You Sound invite all…to help create a new unhinged world, at odds with the stink and stench of the traditional art and music corpse. Bands eat underwater buffalo wings on toast or a vegetable patch bay…. Deviant things, taboo things; Audio intercourse. We implore you to take a day off in 2018.
The album squirms with remixes by chilly slashers ’Bogus Order’ and jungle don DJ Aries. This is not a release, it is an expulsion.. ‘The Day Off’ was scheduled to be a limited edition DJ friendly deluxe 12” vinyl back pack plus a digital package of the album boasting extra remixes, free podcasts, videos, avatar packs, digital artwork and other goodies. Space weapons. Hair clippers. Dog socks. Flea rights.
Caleb Selah: Former arms and fingers dealer. Formerly a stringed thing virtuoso now a crippled mess of a DJ who can’t stand and is psychedelically deaf in his right ear. You wanna hear him click his toes though. Born in Austin Texas, he can’t remember when. Selah hates genres, cream crackers, squares and most things. He probably hates you.
Lord Beefington, the 12th Marquis of Hackney: Born from hell fire, eats microphone cables and children for breakfast. He is rumoured to be the father of Lord Vader. Enjoys cutting dub-plates with his teeth and preventing violence with smiles. He spits pure lava, stand clear.
Our dear friend Tony Allen was going to turn eighty this year. To celebrate this we had planned to release a new rendition of the recordings we made with him about fifteen years ago. To congratulate him on his birthday, to wish him well for the future and to remember our joyful meetings.
Sadly, fate decided differently. Tony passed away suddenly. The numerous obituaries and personal stories from around the world show how special Tony had been. He was one of the founding fathers of Afro Beat, but his influence reached far beyond that.
To celebrate his contribution to music in general and to acknowledge the importance of our collaboration for our development as a group we feel we still should release this material.
This is our tribute to Tony, who was not only a fellow musician, but also a mentor and a real source of inspiration.
