elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post. In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time. You can find links to those, as well as a few other important links associated with Digital Meltd0wn in the menu bar above.

The Purple Fluid Exchange (PFX) is an alias used by the band Gaye Bykers On Acid (GBOA), particularly on their more dance oriented releases. GBOA was formed in 1986 and were one of the early English bands to really bridge the gap between rock and hip hop. The orginal members were Robber (Robbie Byker), guitarist Tony and Kevin Hyde on drums. Mary Millington (Mary, Mary) performed vocals. DJ Rocket Ronnie later joined the group on the turntables.

Their stage presence fused Hell's Angels grittiness with decadent 60s psychedelia. Their frontman, Mary Millington, sported tall platform shoes, wild dresses and all manner of psychedelic glasses, goggles, makeup and wigs. PFX wasn't their only alter-ego, either. They frequently opened for themselves as an Aussie band, The Lesbian Dopeheads On Mopeds, or the eastern European thrash metal group Rektum. To say these guys had a sense of humor would be an understatement. The first 1,000 copies of the 1987 LP "Drill Your Own Hole" actually required listeners to drill their own hole in the center of the LP!

Filled with crazy synth work, tons of samples and funky beats, this disc is an all-out psychedelic dance party. The inside cover art even shows a sheet of acid!
Enjoy responsibly.
