Pink + Green Special 10 Year Anniversary Edition! I don’t even know, this one is all over the place. Sounds like I was really into the Roland V-Synth at the time. May have accidentally invented bronies with this EP, not sure. Added Yip-Yaps from the Eyelicker comp and a special bonus track because why not? Everybody likes extra stuff for fun! Maybe really grumpy people don’t, but you know what? Try and find some shit that makes you happy. Maybe that’s futile in some cases, I am by no means claiming to be an expert. My laptop is really hot right now, think it might start on fire. The screen is falling off so it’s all stuck on with board tape. I dunno what to do, who cares. Anyways I made some of these songs in Winnipeg and some in Budapest in my kitchen.
Originally released on Sublight Records with ltd vinyl via Planet Mu. Here's the press release from the time which is way inspired by this old Billy Idol press release I found that was making me convulse:
Venetian Snares, aka Gonk the 8-legged Viking, is back with yet another record that sounds nothing like Boards of Canada! From the catchy title track opener "Pink + Green" which blends demented punk vocals with hyper-complex grooves and gut gurgling bass blasts you can just tell this is something fresh and funky from producer Aaron "funk" Funk. Not to worry though, the sub-rattling low-end blasts and jackhammering hardcore anthems are still here and in full effect on tracks like "Sporto Fucking Sellout Cocksuckerface" and "Husikam Rave Dojo" that revisit the days of pilled out candy raving. This is cyberpunk at it's finest! Welcome to the interzone! 15 year old K-heads will love this shit! If you hated albums like Winnipeg is a Frozen Shithole and Higgins Ultra Low Track Glue Funk Hits 1972-2006, you will hate this even more! This is not some crybaby n00bcore bullshit, this is rave at it's roughest like only Mr.Snares can bring it. So buy this kickin' new ep so Snares can buy more laptops to make his untouchable "voice of a generation" breakcore cyber hits!. This 12" Features amazing artwork by Arnold Steiner aka AS1 Projects.
