As some as you know my underground band / noise supergroup DIH (or Distorted in Hindsight to give its full name) have produced some quite noisy and brutal spoken word based albums over the years.
In 2002, for a one off joke as a side project for Christmas, I decided with the help of a few friends decided to do in album in the space of half an hour (as was the original plan) where we would crippled, murder and take the piss out of as many songs as we could.
By the time we got to 2003, as is the nature of the beast with this kind of things, things snowballed and it had become officially a DIH project (with Keith and Clara onboard of course) where between the three of us with an ever increasing cast play around with the myth of the Christmas which will often be funny and sad sometimes within the same breath.
To date, the music within these albums have contained anything from singer / songwriter stuff, Brian eno tributes, full on noise, Christmas carols, mashups with the aim to see how many tracks we can bootleg into oen tracks, Aphex twin type crunchers, spoken word and anything else we can throw into the kitchen sink
The music contained within this series of albums are varied and can vary from acoustic singer songwriter stuff to music that could appeal to fans of Aphex Twin, fans of the spoken word all designed to make people think and challenge them as much as we can.
Although DIH as a band is quiet nowadays, the Christmas project is still ongoing and is now accepting submissions for it’s now 12th year of submissions and would like people to submit whatever they feel like submitting on mp3 etc for inclusion on a to be uploaded Christmas albums viva HICC.
