The Beatbox Saboteurs Show

On my show this month:
This month's show is a slightly odd presentation in some respects. We're back to one hour and the time is crammed with a wide variety of releases, most of which you'll probably not hear anywhere else - Noisy Pig anyone?
Our new favourite label, Kapitän Platte, provide a splendid array of sounds throughout the show, including album tracks from Monophona, Lingua Nada and Nihiling. All very different, but all wonderful in their own way.
We continue to support the Spanish band Uniforms and introduce the extremely laid-back Drugstore Romeos. Chirpy Japanese band Goofy18 give us a sneak preview from the forthcoming Thomas Imposter label compilation 'Tokyo Chikatetsu vol 1'. There are also some top tracks from Caroline Martin, Transmission 13, Queen Mab and DJ Kobayashi. There's even something new from Sir Robert Orange Peel.
Finally, we are delighted to announce that this show features our first session track, a beautiful live, extended recording by the magnificent Nolika. We are sure you'll love it, swoon!

Biography:
The Beatbox Saboteurs are Blu and Skreen B, we are a couple of miscreant toffs from the South of England who simply like making and listening to music.
We are probably most well-known for being members of the Cuban Boys, the band who became an integral part of the John Peel Show in the late 90s and, amusingly, through a sequence of fortunate events, ended up being signed to the EMI mothership and gatecrashing the UK charts. We charted higher than S Club 7, pretty good for a "bad Technohead tribute band". However, winning John Peel's Festive 50, recording a couple of sessions for him and having our homemade CDRs played on his show remain our greatest achievements.
The Beatbox Saboteurs formed as an escape pod from the Cuban Boys, aiming to further propel the tradition of twisting popular sound recordings into something fresh and interesting. Call it smiling entertainment with a devilish grin. Once again, we found ourselves adored by John Peel, along with an ever-expanding rabble of DJs from radio stations all around the globe. Between 2002-03, the Beatbox Saboteurs released a rapid succession of albums and special one-off recordings before taking the decision to disappear before the lure of corporate labels tainted the project.
Aside from The Beatbox Saboteurs, we have been involved in many music projects. Our early days as schoolboys were spent making horrendous metal-bashing experimental noise but since then we have worked in nearly every genre: goth, synth-pop, techno, classical, ambient, drum & bass, pop, dance, rock, electro and possibly even novelty pop.

We now run a micro-label called House Of Beauty Records and enjoy the freedom to create whatever takes our fancy. We are goths at heart but can see the wonder of light. If you want to send us a dodgy demo then we would love to hear it!
