Adult Swim

As Rob is off on a nostalgia trip of lycra pants, long hair and sneaky trips away from HHCL where we used to work in London to read Kerrang I thought I'd share something that came my way in RSS feeds last night from Tokyohanna, that immediately stood out from the usual music tip offs.

I really like this ability to embed and share music with people through blogs and widgets. It's a terrific recommendation/distribution model, and means that Adult Swim make it into my awareness and/or consideration set quickly easily and effectively.

I guess their next task is to find a way to get a few Euros out of me. I believe they can do this outside of the traditional revenue model and despite David's startling assertion in a brilliant post he just wrote that content production as we know it may be dead, or even the nature of content itself.

I'm guessing it depends a lot on the context but make sure to follow his thought leadership blog for more on the future of media and take time to check out David's seminal 'Where are the Joneses', for a glimpse I believe into the future of mobile content.

The other talent that caught my attention recently off the Radio One site are Crystal Castles. This video is for Rob because its all about the noise right?


  1. Thanks for kind words squire. Just seeing my name next to HHCL is enough to make me go weak at the knees.

    Expect some follow up posts to 'Schrödinger’s Movie'.

    Speak later on Skype.

  2. What I find quite scary is that you know about my Wednesday Kerrang trips and for the life of me I'm trying to work out how unless Lou Vanstone told you - because she HATED rock music and was obsessed with trying to get me sent to prison rather than support it in any way. [Devil Sounds apprentely]

    And one mans noise is another mans orchestra and Def Lepp could put the Royal Philharmonic to shame ;)

  3. Good to talk earlier David. But the real champ of HHCl is the geezer above. Even if he doesn't remember blogging about his KERRANG moments when bunking of Market Place (Old HHCL address) :)

  4. Hah.
    I still read the NME and Kerrang...

    I'm not sure what to make of Crystal castles. I saw them live a year or so ago, and they are cool except they were kind of lacking any good songs to go with the amazing retro sound.

    This is better though.

    What I like is that it has hints of stuff I make in some of the sparkly synth sounds. Hurrah.

  5. Come on Rob. Spill the beans. Where's the music you're making, and can we listen to it?

  6. A few tracks here:

    Need to add vocals on though.

  7. Rob. That's freaking awesome music. Way up my street. Very impressed. Thanks
