      fine haiku�. Rob Young,The Wire
      John Burton) has been defined as �one the bourgeoning stars of
      post-electronica� (Tony Herrington, The Wire). �The Housebound Spirit�,

      :: Y A X U P A X O (london_uk | slaboratory)
      Gut-wrenching techno messing with a programmer's mind pre-occupied with
      computer code. You see the programmer play live, the same as you see a
      guitarist play live - the process is brought back to the fore. Must see

      || press quotes ||
      'A gentle, slow, intimate, funny and rather wonderful process we might
      feasibly describe as pop' (David Toop, The Wire).

      'Electronics, computers, memory, instruments, folk music, unpredictable
      influences, political discontents and objects are central to Matmos
      modus operandi and aesthetic.'
      David Toop, The Wire magazine (issue 235)

      'The [Civil War] title is meant to suture the English Civil war of 1640
      with the American Civil War of 1865 with the domestic civil war between
      us as boyfriends and as band mates with the current civil war in
      America between those who support Bush and those who despise him'.
      Drew Daniel, in conversation with David Toop (ibit)
