Hookworms
Microshift Remixes

It’s Leeds’ newly-disbanded Hookworms, whose members unfortunately now have more reason than ever to keep their names fashionably abbreviated. Following acclaimed third album Microshift earlier in the year is the inevitable remix album, featuring Luke Abbott, Nik Void, Free Love and Xam. It’s Microshift… with a twist.

Hookworms
Microshift

Leeds stalwarts Hookworms’ third studio album, available on CD and vinyl via Domino. After the banks of the River Aire broke in late 2015, the band’s studio was devastated. The repairs that took place over the course of the next year were only made possible by altruistic voluntary work and online donations. That community effort displayed in the face of tragedy is no doubt the source of a pertinent blend of euphoria and tension present on the record. A more synth heavy affair than previous efforts, MJ’s modular features much more prominently, and collaboration with local synth nut Richard Formby guarantee an interesting listen!!

Hookworms
Pearl Mystic

This is the 'classic' debut album Leeds psych man band Hookworms. They purvey a kind of heads down, no nonsense kraut boogie which borrows as much from Neu '3' as it does Status Quo 'On the Level'. Moving way into the modern age, it's the kind of album no Spacemen 3 fan should be without. Heavy psych wibbling for all the family.

XAM Duo
XAM Duo

XAM Duo takes one member of Deadwall and matches him up with a Hookworm. Then the pair improvised their way down some infinite komische highways at high speed, producing shimmering electro-psych that stands comfortably apart from the ‘main’ projects of the members. CD / double LP editions on Sonic Cathedral.

XAM Duo / The Au Fait
Tisch Tennis / French Wrestler

Family Scraps
Mistakes

In between recording almost every band under the planet and leading Leeds drone-krauters Hookworms, Matthew Johnson (aka MJ) has also found time to work on some solo music. Compared to Hookworms gruntings it's rather tuneful. Turns out Johnson's sky-high voice works pretty well well with melodic indie rock. Fans of the chirpy end of Deerhunter should perhaps take note.

XAM Duo
Live at the Total Refreshment Centre, London, November 5, 2016

XAM Duo, the Hookworms / Deadwall synth team-up, played an improvised show at Total Refreshment Centre earlier this year. Thankfully the set was recorded, and now lies before you, encased in an orange cassette tape. Shiny kosmische goodness is the order of the day, performed on analogue synthesisers and saxophone. Limited edition of 75 copies, out on Sonic Cathedral.

Hookworms
The Hum

Third album from Leeds-based psychedelic noise band Hookworms. With a new drummer on board, this is a more confident, leaner and meaner offering from the band Julian Cope described as a "...sub-Zabriskie Point ambient road-movie heat haze-on-the-road sonic wipeout." The limited edition comes on clear vinyl with a free 7" (note the limited edition is long sold out!). Both versions come with free download.
