The second installment in Audio Antihero's "2011 Commercial Suicide Series" is “Broken Shoulderrr”; a Lo-Tron collection of noises, ditties and misplaced notes sewn together by fuzz and feedback. It’s a unique record that evolves with each listen and has a shelf life longer than UHT milk.
Broken Shoulder is the aching pseudonym of Neil Debnam from Fighting Kites. Conceived when he was out of action from FK with a broken shoulder, Debnam looked to create an ugly sister to his work with FK, with the intention of stripping away the bleeping and the beauty of his day job Debnam lent in the darker shade of his influences; electronic and noise records from the likes of Tim Hecker, Ashtray Navigations, Core Of The Coalman and a wealth of Japanese experimental/improvisational music (Chihei Hatakeyama, Taj Mahal Travellers, Himeno Sayaka).
