MP Hopkins and Mark Harwood – Disfigured with Abbreviations LP
Debut recording from two troubadours of oppositional creep. Inspired by Philip K. Dick and the useless machines that haunt us all, Disfigured with Abbreviations is a roundtable exquisite corpse which crawls through a miraculous environment, at once sensual and sinister.
How is it that the perpetual promise of a future lands us in a deeper quagmire?
How do two gentlemen with scruffy vocabularies fall into a sonic landscape of such haunted beauty?
Following their debut live performance on the rooftop of a bakery in Northcote, Victoria in January 2018 Harwood and Hopkins soon set about making a recording. Initially structured with individual recordings placed on each other regardless of content and positioning. These works soon evolved into a rich labyrinth of found sound, field recordings, electronics and voice with all elements mapping out a landscape heroic in it’s embracing of utter failure.
Mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi with artwork by MP Hopkins and Mark Harwood. Comes with a printed inner disco sleeve housed in a charming reverse board sleeve.
Limited edition of 250 copies.
