Hi, we’re the diskant team and we have some new content for you…

Dave Stockwell’s new column – an obsessive exploration of the work of Davenport.

Interview with SuperFi Records – they’ve released stuff by Trencher, Melt-Banana, Biblical Proof of UFOs and lots more.

Interview with Hookers Green No. 1 – ‘…the quirkiness of Gorkys and The Flaming Lips as well as the lushness and anxieties of Hood.’

Interview with Hex – ‘Stuart Braithwaite used to like us but I don’t know what he thinks of the new stuff.’


Simon Minter

Simon joined diskant after falling on his head from a great height. A diskant legend in his own lifetime Simon has risen up the ranks through a mixture of foolhardiness and wit. When not breaking musical barriers with top pop combo Sunnyvale Noise Sub-element or releasing records in preposterously exciting packaging he relaxes by looking like Steve Albini.
