The new Hyperdriver album is a cassette or digital download from Slime City Records called Broken. As with most of my albums the name has a story. I played someone what is now the title track and they said "it sounds broken". They also said "you are fu**ing mental" but I thought Broken was a better title.
Side 1 is taken up by Broken, the aforementioned title track. Twenty minutes of hyperdriven in your face mania that has become synonimous with the Hyperdriver sound.
Side 2 starts with Amen Again Again. I did an amen track in Amen Again many years ago so here's another one. Grains of Truth is an experiment in granular synthesis and wavefolding that was mostly done on my modular gear. A lot of my old noise tracks used these techniques but in software rather than hardware. The "siren" sound in Souper Gloo is a sister sample to the one used in my track Satanic Rhumba way back in 2003. I found it lurking on an old hard drive and just had to use it. End of Side 2 has an organ on it because, firstly, I like organs and, secondly, saying organ a lot makes me smile. Organ. See? Now you're doing it. Organ.
