New things!

– An interview with everyone’s favourite pixie-voiced geometry-loving indiemetallers BATTLES which took place in their chalet at ATP while watching King of Kong. They were surprisingly good fun and the interview is well worth a read. Go go here >>

– Narrowly escaping the fate of being branded the new “Oedipus demo tape” in diskant’s useless slacker hall of fame, Glasgow’s FINDO GASK finally turn in some answers for a Talentspotter profile. They made The Guardian so giddy they both used the word “ecclesiastical” and compared them to Aled Jones. Read read here >>

– I can also announce that Findo Gask will be one of the exciting live bands at the diskant 080808 birthday extravaganza, along with diskant’s own electronic pioneers Sunnyvale Noise Sub-element. Everything you need to know is on the 080808 page of INFORMATION. Party party here >>

Okay, I need a lie down now. ENJOY.

Marceline is the fierce, terrifying force behind diskant.net, laughing with disdain as she fires sharpened blades of sarcasm in all directions. Based in Scotland, her lexicon consists of words such as 'jings', 'aboot' and 'aye': our trained voice analysts are yet to decipher some of the relentless stream of genius uttered on a twenty-four hour basis. Marceline's hobbies include working too much and going out in bad weather.
