Shortcut Freaks are like an inactive volcano right now, they haven’t touched music for years now and this collection songs is from 15 or 20 years ago.
Back then Blackbean And Placenta Tape Club was one of the sexiest labels around, releasing hundred records on beautiful vinyl, photocopying artworks on colored cardboards, recycling used jackets and exploring differnt styles and genders of music.
BBPTC must have been quite popular in Japan, as there is a long list of japanese artists that have worked with them.
Shortcut Freaks are one of them and they had their first 12” released by BBPTC.
There was an article about Orange Cake Mix on a japanese magazine, Shortcut Freaks thought it was cool and they sent a letter and a demo tape to Mike L. An answer came and it was funny, Mike L. had cut the address on the envelope which was in japanese and had it pasted to a new enevelope to send his reply.
I, sincerely have no idea of what Shortcut Freaks are singing in their songs but I love their music which is some sort of lo-fi groovy japanese DJ music, underground hometaping drum’n’bass that is completely nutso. What am I going to draw for this? I’ll find out copy per copy.
