(forwarded from Lachlan Gale):
Two Melbournites currently residing in Japan, John Box (Pissbolt, Dad They Broke Me) and Lachlan Gale (Microvom) have joined creative forces to raise some funds for the devistated Tohoku region. The result is 'static:erratic', and their first release 'Quake Raiser' is now available for download from quakeraiser.blogspot.com. John and Lachlan have combined two solo tracks each and have also worked collaboratively via the net for their first joint effort entitled 'Sweet'. Each track on Quake Raiser is unique but for the most part draws on sounds borrowed and manipulated from the typical Japanese urban or rural environment. For more info, track previews, downloads etc. please head to the blog and if you dig it, donate and spread the word!
