Battery Operated: Vecuum
 
 

Rip It Up (New Zealand, 2001)

Not a New Zealand outfit, but a collective from the UK, France and Canada and a good example of what monkey records is interested in releasing. Vecuum is a truly experimental collection of bleeps, scratches and sound manipulations. What is the sound of digital anarchy? The answers provided here are sometimes exhilarating, and sometimes disturbing. Battery Operated don't see technology as being warm and fuzzy. Acid casualties should approach this puppy with caution.
