Hyde & Herbert
Fatherland DOGBOY/CAROLINE INTERNATIONAL. CD/DL/LP
After collecting audio interviews for a play about fatherhood he was co-scripting, techno’s poet laureate Karl Hyde turned to sonic radical Matthew Herbert for its score. The remembered folly of childhood – bouncing balls, car keys – were turned into percussive elements or harmonic devices, resulting in musical stories that are often unsettling but hugely moving.
