FORWARD INTO THE FURNITURE C.D. - By ANTEDILUVIAN ROCKING HORSE (Band) - Mash-up Plunderphonic Electronics
FORWARD INTO THE FURNITURE C.D.
By ANTEDILUVIAN ROCKING HORSE (Band/Group)
Sample-delic techno, cut-up mayhem, mash-ups and plunderphonics with a beat.
Exploring the territory between chance and rhythm, Antediluvian Rocking Horse has traveled a long unique route in Australian electronica. Part Easy Listening Lounge-act and part Noise Guerrillas, this 'group' hails from Melbourne, Australia.
Formed in 1994, The Horse cut its teeth DJ-ing in the local techno scene. Bringing multi-layered sound collage to the chill out rooms at raves, their style was distinctive - Eager to connect these random excursions, ARH hit the studio where they crafted a sample-heavy offering that happily defied labeling - too curious to be techno - it's more like plunderphonics or mash-up style music.
San Francisco legends NEGATIVLAND heard their first recorded album and immediately re-realeased it on their Seeland label. Never quite fitting in to any particular 'scene' or 'genre' they found an appreciative audience in Japan and toured there several times.
"Forward into the Furniture" released in 2003, is a largely self-produced affair, with Ollie Olsen (friend of late great Rowland S. Howard) joining them on a few tracks. Mindful of their use of unauthorized samples, ARH started their own label to release it - Whacked, Lovely and Haywire sounding CD.
One sample beckons you to: "riot in the street, punch-out everyone you meet" !!
ANTEDILUVIAN ROCKING HORSE is Melbourne artists Susan King and Paul Wain - guest appearance on several tracks by Ollie Olsen (of 'The Young Charlatans' a band he was in with Rowland S. Howard/Birthday Party).
