The Beatbox Saboteurs Show

On my show this month:
Just an hour slot this month as the social season has started and we have been busy tippling and chomping at various soirées. Don't worry, the show still packs a punch with some corkers from Klammer, The Total Rejection, Beatastic and Axolotes Mexicanos. We have another sublime track from Abi Wade, a quick blast of In Love With Ghost, along with some pulsating electro from Gridbug, Sinosa and our much-loved Computer Magic.
We have tracks from a couple of compilations, one of which is a forthcoming charity release supporting Hastings Citizens Advice, the other is the new Thomas Imposter Records' Tokyo Chikatetsu Volume 1. The latter introduces us to the lively Japanese band Dead Bambies, and to keep them company we've slipped in some sheer cheek from the wonderful Goofy18.
To annoy the librarians, Damaged Goods Records bookend the show with tracks from their recent Amyl & The Sniffers and The Senior Service releases.
We hope you enjoy the show!

On the show NEXT month:
The summer is here and this month's show has the unofficial title of "The Agatha Christie Episode" - and to complement that we've got a fine body of music in the library from La Bien Querida, Shape Shifting Aliens, Soft Science, Rat Scabies, Accü, Moniah, Venetian Snares, Elyxr, Shame, Clubbs, Moaning, Sage Maverick, The Equatorial Group and Defeated Sanity.

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!
