Modified toy orchestra

Just wow,

As soon as i get my finances sorted I’ve got to order myself a copy of this here CD.

A group of five “Musicians” hailing from Birmingham, who have spend the last five years modifying and experimenting with discarded electronic children’s toys, for pure audio endeavour has got to be worth £10.99 from

The first track i heard was “This is the monkey”, and it had me bopping around for days! The shear mix of dirty Partyshank (see more later) beats and synth droning 8-bit vocal samples. For those unfamiliar which the term ‘Circuirbending’ this will be a great introduction, of the art of reverse engineering and ‘Bending’ of electronic equipment and toys.

Released on the WarmCircuit Label “Toygopop” sound varied and original but i’m sure that is expected when ‘musicians’ are behind the creation. Rather than effort i myself have tried! Preview tracks and videos from the album on the Myspace page.
