Feed Me – Calamari Tuesday

Share

Feed Me (aka Jon Gooch) brings us his first full-length album ‘Calamari Tuesday’, coming out on his new label Sotto Voce (which will be home to all Jon’s Feed Me exploits and releases from other artists) on 14th October 2013.

When the majority of the world’s population think of a combination of man and machine, they are likely to picture the typical Hollywood ‘robot’. But not Jon, his perfect symbiosis between man and machine is about 3 foot tall, green, and boasts the kind of teeth that would make Sigourney Weaver think twice (Check out the image at the bottom of the page). Feed Me was created by Jon and built with the help of animatronics genius, John Nolan (who worked on projects including Harry Potter, Dr Who, Clash Of The Titans and many more).

Musically, ‘Calamari Tuesday’ shows that peaktime electronic music can be a thrill ride for the mind as well as the feet. It bristles and crackles with energy but shuns the default setting you’ll find amongst certain plug-in obsessed peers. This album represents Jon and Feed Me’s journey so far, resembling something of an aural biopic of them both to date. He says many of the lead synth lines “were created by the pair in his Hertfordshire garage and fashioned from common household goods”.

Jon had this to say about the project:“This is my first full-length album. It represents a journey through various styles of music, 2 years of intensive touring around the world in a variety of incredible locations, and the construction of my live show and imaginary friend, from sketches into tangible reality. It’s something I now see as a collaboration between me and Feed Me. It’s very serious.” Feed_Me_Album.jpg

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
