The Beatbox Saboteurs Show

On my show this month:
November is here and it is apparently Annual Family Reunion Planning Month (careful not to muddle the order of those words!) and we, The Beatbox Saboteurs, are ever so glad to be reuniting with our family, that's you, and you ...... and YOU! Not just because we love our listeners but because we want to share all the spiffing new tracks with you.
What's coming up? Firstly, we are extremely excited to be airing the new release from Spanish band, Uniforms. We first played them months ago when they were unsigned, but they are now signed, they have a great video out and their debut album is ready to roll. Glorious!
We are equally overjoyed to have a special session track for you from those crazy girls from Japan, Goofy18. It is a wonderfully liberated noise and comes complete with an introductory note from our Agent in Tokyo. In truth, the show almost collapses in chaos around this point but, moving on swiftly, we have new releases from previous show favourites LegPuppy, K Michelle DuBois and The Big Believe. The excellent Libertino label provides a couple of delightful tracks in the form of Accü and Adwaith, there's The Last Detail and Carbon Poppies from Elefant Records and a super-slinky track from Damaged Good's new album by Holly Golightly.
The featured compilation this month is LXXII - Volume One with Mute Tiny and AnaFxer providing some splendid beats. Further electronics come from Future Sound Of London and Julian Winding, we are also delighted to have a track from Manwel T which will surely have you bouncing around the room.
Due to the popularity of last month's experimental section, we have included another slice for you this month featuring Istanbul Hippodrome, Whettman Chelmets, Todd Snow and even the second part of our very own Life As Surface Noise debut release. A good chance for you to sit back and consider your Festive 50 options for this year.
Other new faces on this month's show with terrific recent releases are Holygram, Whispering Sons, Polly Panic, The Venus Fly Trap, English Minor, [/artist]Sound Mirrors[/artist], The Moors and Three Day Millionaires. A diverse range of rich, punchy, humorous and delectable sounds. No wonder we love recording these shows.
Please enjoy the music and welcome all the acts into your lives.

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!
