The Beatbox Saboteurs Show

On my show this month:
In this month's show the mystery surrounding Skreen's disappearance is revealed and although the presenting may have gone downhill, the music certainly reaches a new peak of perfection.


What do we have for you? Show favourites Amyl & The Sniffers, Klammer and The Equatorial Group return but (nearly) everything else is fresher than Merriman's armpits.
So, you'll be able to feast your ears on this lovely lot: Dentist, Searmanas, Social Station, Linda Em, BMX Bandits, Diane Marie Kloba, Bacon Horse, The Parazone, Shriekback, The Veldt, Cariño, Lost Chocolate Lab, Nicholas Merz, The Room in The Wood, Linda Guilala, A Shoreline Dream, The Perfect Kiss, David Ford and S T F U.

That covers quite a few genres and global locations but there's more too, we play a couple of classic 80s tunes and even slip in some of the usual anomalies, as they always seem to be enjoyed by everyone.
The more astute readers may realise that all this means it is a 2 hour slot this month. We hope you enjoy the show and don't forget to support all those wonderful labels and acts out there.

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!
