Kit Kat - 4 Fingers Mix Beyond Science And Superstition sees Steve Bellamy [Greenhaus/Kamakusa] now officially recording together with me (Roi) as a full-time band member. Together we’ve developed the no-nonsense synthpunk of earlier releases, pushing the boundaries of the Mechanical Cabaret sound into previously uncharted territories. The title of the album reflects my continuing lyrical exploration of/obsession with the realities of life - how things *really* are - as opposed to how both Science and Superstition attempt, and frequently fail, to explain things in this universe we find ourselves in, often confusing or misleading us all in the process... The stock-in-trade fiercely intense, sometimes dark, wayward elements are still present, as is the perversity and black humour, but now positively glowing with a new-found warmth and humanity. With wonderful artwork by Adam Cavill, and our collection of vintage analogue synths, samplers, digital synths, circuit-bent machines, as well as an esoteric array of other instruments, we hope we’ve managed to produce an interesting, unique album of experimental, somewhat retro-futuristic, electronic music.
