    If Gabbacore was played by orchestras, “No One Said You Didn’t” sounds like its musicians tuning their instruments before an ear-grinding performance. Dimitri Fergadis is a veteran of this game, both as an artist and as curator of the amazingly astute and always challenging Phthalo imprint. When you think that artists as noted as Dntel and Daedalus emerged from his home-spun cottage industry, you get a good idea of just how on-the-money his selection skills
