fine haiku�. Rob Young,The Wire

Gut-wrenching techno messing with a programmer's mind pre-occupied with

|| 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)
