Zacht Automaat - unknown [excerpt]

Given the amount of rancour that had surfaced between the festival and elements of the local DIY scene, it was somewhat amusing to see some of the latter gathered together at this "indie label fair" on the festival's final day. Organized by Sonic Boom and People Put Out Productions, this felt like it had its fingers a bit more firmly on the street-level pulse than a lot of NXNE doings. It was nice to see records and tapes getting purchased and there were some cool bands playing outside in the courtyard, which helped send the festival off on a happier note than it began on.

Do you like repetition? If so, these four bars may satisfy you greatly. Do you like repetition? Originally slated as a solo Carl Didur set, in a pleasant surprise this ended up being a ZA duo set, albeit one in a somewhat unusual fashion. Do you like repetition? With A laptop supplying a repeating four-note riff, synth/loop wizard Didur took to the drumkit, joined by Michael McLean on bass in a live recreation of a needle stuck in a record's looping side-closing lockgroove. Do you like repetition? Do you like repetition? Do you like repetition? Do you like repetition? DDo you like repetition? DDo you like repetition-ion? Do you like repetition? Do you like repetition?
