It was only a week or two ago that we posted introducing Ash Cooke aka Pulco, with the news that he’d be contributing some specially recorded samples to be mashed up (i.e. destroyed) in the name of art… and contribute he did, with a whole stash of bizarre loops and rumblings. In true Pulco style, the ‘misery poet’ utilised everyday objects like a wheelbarrow, and chucked rocks at it till it became aurally pleasing.
You can preview the product below; it’s a dark, grungey affair.
For more info on Pulco, check out the interview from Artrocker that went online today.

It’s Saturday, so here’s a new song.
‘i look forward to your unscheduled appearance’ will now make the Listen page above its home.
Go download and rack up some sexy Last FM stats.
It’s pretty late. I’ve had about 3 hours sleep in the last 24 and I’ve spent the best part of the past 6 of those adjusting guitars; trying to keep my lips wet enough to manage a tuneful whistle; singing and re-singing melodies; scribbling words in my battered notebook.. and almost crying in disbelief that Cubase had autosaved all of the work after crashing unexpectedly.
It feels pretty good.
A recording of ‘sleeping solves nothing‘ has been uploaded, and can be found under the ‘listen’ link at the top of the page. It’ll play host to a variety of musical fancies in the future.
After a year and a half in the musical wilderness, I’ve managed to get over the deep-rooted lovehate relationship I had developed with my guitar to come up with this latest endeavour.
It’ll involve mandolins, glockenspiels and other wonderful things, and is thanks in no small part to the influence of Mr. Toby Hayes of ‘Shoes and Socks Off’ – pictured above enjoying a jacuzzi next to my bespectacled self.
Have a listen to ‘smoke and rabbits’ here, and check back to see what might unfold.
