    Tim Exile - Tim Exile's Nuisance Gabbaret Lounge

    Despite having entered the world of music through the well-worn path of violin and school orchestras, Tim Exile (known to many sans the first name...) soon discovered the wonderful world of electronics; with FX, synths and tape machines sending out a siren-call to his muse, which then went off on a tangent and resulted in the garbled drum&bass of 'Pro Agonist'. From here he's got busy with the soldering iron and built some tech that allowed him to tour a 100% improvised set - the results of one show have been preserved for future generations in it's eternity on 'Tim Exile's Nuisance Gabbaret Lounge'. The sound of his record collection being dropped into a speaker from a significant height, 'Nuisance Gabbaret Lounge' certainly doesn't take itself seriously - with moments of gut-pumelling breakcore suddenly dropping out to reveal a Britney Spears 'Toxic' sing-along. Clocking in at nineteen tracks (just shy of an hour) and with barely a breath to be taken, 'Gabbaret...' is an aural overload; with electropop ('Mummy I Fucked Up Again'), avantronica ('Su Doku Wars') and Vicks Vapour hardcore ('Just Revisiting') all fed through the splintered speakers of Tim's mind and dumped in brusquely in your ears. Loud and proud, 'Tim Exile's Nuisance Gabbaret Lounge' won't be to everyone's taste - yet get past the ADD and there's many a clattering treat to be had. Exile on main street..
