“DECAY, most definitely a synonym for the downfall of things and people, but yet also the guarantee that there will be something new. This certainty brings EASE and relief in the end. And since there is a relation between Decay and Decadence, it is just consequent to celebrate this perception.”

Further Vexations is our artistic response to 21st century rat on your neighbour smokefree Britain. It is an attempt to capture and express our emotional frustrations, and the trials and tribulations of living in an un-democratic surveillance society. The seeds of nihilist despair and apathy are well and truly sown amongst the citizens of Airstrip One. We’ve helplessly watched with mounting horror, while the government trashed the country, signed away its sovereignty to Brussels (with a flourish of a specially minted silver pen), sold off precious national industries and assets at next to bargain basement prices, and indulged itself with two utterly pointless wars which it couldn’t afford. We were promised a vote. A referendum. A chance to change things but an unelected politician chancellor man decided not to bother. To say we are pissed off about it, would be an understatement.

New Single released on 17/03/08 and the final tracks to be taken for the forthcoming album Radio Scarecrow. Already getting charted and played by the like of Louis Osbourne, Laurent Garnier and Claude Young.
Laurent Garnier ? Black Dog as good as ever.
Claude Young ? The Black Dog has done it again! Deep funky electronics presented by the masters of the game. This release is definitely something for the mind body and soul. 10/10?
Denise Breidbach ? Great release, all three tracks are massive ?hits?!!! Absolutely stunning. 10/10?
This is the second part of the interview we did with Jonty Skrufff about the Radio Scarecrow and various other bits and bobs.
1. Starting with the press release: it says ?since the release of Silenced in October 2005 The Black Dog have been working delicately on its successor?: ?working delicately? is an unusual phrase: why ?delicate?: what does the term mean in practical terms?
[Martin] It doesn?t seem that unusual to me, music and the whole creative process is delicate by its very nature. The slightest thing can throw it completely off, even if you are making the most violent kind of music. This is why we created special mixes
[Ken] To me, it means “carefully crafted” and hand stitched with love. This was not the time to say “fuck it, that will do”. A lot of extra tweaking beyond the call of duty went into the album. It took six months to put the tracks into their correct (and final) order, for instance.
[Martin] Jesus, I still have 67 cdr?s in the car with all the different tracks and track orders on them, that was a real quest but it?s something that you have to do if you love music. It has to be right.
Since the release of Silenced in October 2005 The Black Dog have been working delicately on its successor. Two years in the making and the first album to be completed in their new Sheffield Lab.
Radio Scarecrow has been over two years in the making, constantly developing and building, culminating in a masterpiece work that flows delightfully and hits hard. A true progression on Silenced, the trio are keen to note ?the beats are faster and the bass is much heavier ? so much so that it was making us ill working with the low frequencies for hours on end, we could only do 3 hours at a time on some parts?.
The Black Dog – Floods – Soma 231 12″
A. Floods V3
B1. Floods V3.2 ( Surgeon Remix)
B2. Floods V3.1 (The Bass Soldier Remake)
After months of waiting and what seems like a lifetime mastering and mixing , the new single is finally here. We got Single Of The Month in Mixmag and the single seems to be going down really, really well. Anyway here’s some DJ feedback on the release:
Shelley Parker ? This is excellent! Just so great to hear this dubstep/techno sound being pushed to it?s limits. Fave mix Surgeon. Will chart in Nov.
Louis Osbourne ? This Surgeon mix is wicked? it?s got some serious fun in there.
Josh Wink ? Very interesting record, as usual for tBd?Surgeon mix is something that I may try out. Top production as usual.
Laurent Garnier ? looooooove the dubstep remix. Will definitely play that.
Nice little surprise for us this morning in the post, we’re not really sure what “Electro/Disco-Punk” is but we’ll give anything a try twice!!! Cheers DJ Mag.

We also get a mention in 2007′s Players Of The Year, we are back from the dead apparently but nice to get some props for work old and new. Click here to read the little mention.
And to round it all off, here’s a load of cuttings from things we’ve been involved in one way or another – Click.
The Cost 12″ is out on promo at the moment, as we’ve mentioned before – Simon Francis down at Masterpiece has done a fantastic job on remastering the tracks, they are really warm and full but they still have that punch. Here’s the track listing for this 12:
A1 Cost I (5:05)
A2 Cost II (6:30)
B1 The Actor And Audience (5:17)
B2 Sharp Shooting On Saturn (6:39)
The new masters for Temple of Transparent Balls are finally back?and sounding very phat indeed. Soma have this and a 4 track 12″ slated for release in October – more news and the artwork from the dust studio?crew to follow.
The new 12″, Floods V2, has been submitted to Soma, this 12 comes with a remixes from?Birmingham’s finest Surgeon and a new dubstep artist from Sheffield called The Bass Soldier (he’s only 17 as well!!!). The album (Radio Scarecrow) is well on its way to being finished in mid-September and if we can get our act together a tour to support it. The remix for the Vector Lovers is coming along nicely and Slam’s Azure is sat waiting to be bitten really hard next.
