John Chantler
Even Clean Hands Damage The Work

With Mike on holiday it falls to me to wade through acres of synth explorations. Here is a new album by John Chantler, an Australian man now living in good old England. Here he comes with some fractured blissed out synth worship. There are two pieces that each run over a side of the vinyl which sound like a fist mashed into a keyboard whilst som...view item »

Automatic Music For Erik Griswold

Ah, that Erik Griswold. You'd have to be bloody Shoestring to work out whats going on here. No title, no artist, no record label, no titles on the inner label.

John Chantler/ Function

A split 7" lathe cut has just arrive on Room 40. It's by FUNCTION and JOHN CHANTLER. Function's side ' Loving You (Maelstrom) is a strange little piece with distant melodies, bells, drones and fuzzy textures. Chantler's contribution is a lo-fi piece with experimental guitar weaving over a fa...view item »
