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.
Guts Pie Earshot was formed in 1991 as an experimental noise-punk ensemble in Cologne, Germany. They are associated with the DIY and squatter punk communities and often play at tiny venues with a more intimate setting. They released two LPs with singer a.Punkt, her voice adding even more to their unusual sound, before GPE became the drum-n-cello instrumental duo that they remain today.
The first LP, Distorted Wonderland, I sought for some time before finally I found a copy in decent condition. This album is a smorgasbord of noise and grooves at times ringing out with a punk fury and other times a frenetic and cinematic adventure that is never dull. The synthesis of keyboard with the cello makes for a sort of magical realism in the realm of sound. This LP is brimming over with creativity and energy that always inspires me. I'm really happy to share it with you all today. Enjoy.
