Hello GoodBye Show 26 February 2011: Design A Wave, Gerry Mitchell and Flame Proof Moth

Performing live in session on HG today we had Design A Wave, Flame Proof Moth and Gerry Mitchell.

Taking time off as keyboardist in the mighty Faust meets Sparks mash-up that is Cleckhuddersfax, Tom Hirst performs intense, hypnotic electro music as Design-A-Wave, all warm analogue synths and reverb vocals. Design-A-Wave sounds like what the future used to sound like, when it was still mysterious and magical, before it became the present and then the past.

Flame Proof Moth is Tim Siddall’s new project following the retirement of The Boycott Coca-Cola Experience. Whereas BCCE set out to save the world after over-dosing on Resonance FM’s Max Keiser (The Truth About Markets), FPM is just trying to enjoy what little time we have left. Despite the seemingly left-field nature of his new album Women Should Be In Charge, Flame Proof Moth is convinced he’s ready for a brush with the mainstream.

Also, our resident poet Gerry Mitchell phones up to recite his – hot off the back of a fag packet – epic poem entitled; ‘The Empire Of My Heart’.
