    Going back to the early live bass style makes me feel all tingly inside. This really better not be a disapointment like Do you Know Squarepusher.

    Yeah. I find Squarepusher can be a little hit or miss. Saw him live ages ago at The Rocket in Holloway and he was bloody awful.

    Go Plastic was awesome though!

    Am I right in thinking Squarepusher = Plug?

    Don't think so. Although many of these acts work under several aliases so I might be wrong :)

    No, Plug is one of Luke Vibert's alias. Tom Jenkinson works as SP, Wagonchrist, Alroy Road Tracks and Freeman Hardy Willis with Richard D James.

    I thought Wagonchrist was Vibert too?

    Yes, he is, I have no idea why I listed him under SP, apologies.

    No worries. Any idea what Michael Paradinas is up to these days?

    He released Bilious Paths earlier last year, but apart from that as far as I know he's still busy with Planet Mu.

    Probably a silly question, but is it any good?

    I'd say that's a good question.

    I only say it's a silly question because I've yet to hear anything he's done that's been anything less than amazing. :)

    It's not especially inventive, but that's pretty much the only criticism I could level at it. The first couple of tracks are his usual insane jungle beats then he starts bringing in some really nice chord lines and effects. Check out Siege of Antioch if you want an example of what's great about the album.

    I just got a promo for this....it's really quite mind blowing. Probably the best bass playing I've ever heard.

    So, a good album then :)

    Go and buy the Plaid album 'Spokes'. Listening to it at the moment and it's AWESOME!

    I love Spokes, Zeal is easily one of the best things they've ever done.

    Agreed. I just love the intro track too. The first few bars are just beautiful.

    Thread Necromancy!

    Just to keep the IDM stuff in a single thread Paradinas' latest full length as Kid Spatula, Meast is out there if you know where to look. It's due out in March.
