So proud to be able to take part in this charity release, raising money for the NHS and Médecins Sans Frontières. As a kicker, Bandcamp isn’t collecting royalties today (1st May) so you contribute even more to the effort. Please support/share.
I suppose I’m one of the lucky ones sitting in my kitchen with screens everywhere working from home.

It has emerged that Mazzula has been recording his occasional podcast from the elevator in Trump Towers. It has been reported that, as GCHQ was monitoring outgoing media from the home of neo fascism, this audio was recovered. It appears to evidence very upfront electro being played to staff, including Trump’s personal secretary. Mazzula said “I […]
