about

Immaterial (aka Dermot Bucknall, former singer of nineties Liverpool band Rooney) made a number of lo-fi experimental cassette albums – in small handmade editions – in the summer, autumn and winter of 1981, when he had just turned 14. We at Owd Scrat feel very strongly that now is the time for the stark grey beauty of this body of work to finally see the light of day. Recorded on a Binatone mono tape recorder and Hitachi stereo hi-fi tape deck during those long school holiday and weekend hours, this selection of pieces mixes apocalyptic tape distortions – made by manipulating the record button on the tape decks – with fragments of the short wave radio noise, news reports and pirate radio broadcasts from 1981, that monochrome but seminal year.
