The Beatbox Saboteurs Show

On my show this month:
It is the season to be jolly and this month we have a jolly chaotic show for you.
Being the month of giving and goodwill, we decided to include a whole sackful of new and unsigned acts for you to gorge on, so you'll hear Green Blanket, Acid Fader, Woeful Bat, Our Echoes Scream, Freelite, Oko & the Authority, Love Jerks, Kh3rtis, AAUL, Aunt Tabby, Swedish Death Candy, The Sun Aesthetic, Michal Towber + AR and Deaf.
It just highlights how much quality and variety is out there when you step away from the music aisles of your local supermarket.
If you would rather be in outer-space than fighting for a parking-space at this time of year, then we've covered that with some celestial electronica from Kosmischer Läufer and Truth In Space. Closer to home, thanks to some excellent releases from Elefant Records, we're strangely under the influence of Spain for a lot of the show, with tracks from Cariño, Galaxy Fingers and Neleonard. Not to be outdone, we even hear from the marvellous Spanish band, Uniforms, who recently signed to the Oso Polita label.
We cannot completely ignore Christmas, so there's a light scattering of festive tunes from the past. Enough to keep you entertained, but not so many that you feel like you've been transported back in time to vomit over the pick'n'mix in Woolworths.
Last month's session stars, Goofy18, pop back to remind us just how good they are and then we round off the soirée with our very own Life As Surface Noise track from this year's Cherryade Records 'A Very Cherry Christmas' compilation. Nothing stops the festivities quite like a Life As Surface Noise party piece!
Finally, we would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas, see you again in the new year!

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!
