Yet again, the time comes around when hardtekno and core influenced noise producer, Johnny Sideways drops the ball for another release.
Knocking it up a notch from the previous release I designed a steam punk / post apocalyptic influenced record player. Built from scrap and powered by techno, this end of the world free party machine will knock your socks off through any soundsystem.
Limited Edition 12″ vinyl and Digital
4 Tracks of ruffed up hardcore, tekno & breaks from Johnny Sideways, Busmonitor, Ronin & Sam C
‘We women are actually very unhappy creatures . . . . Isn’t there another path for us? Is there a path at all?’
I chose Whores Glory for its many layers; and its disturbing, yet captivating nature. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first pressed ‘play’, but as the documentary progressed, it dove deep into a dark world of women sacrificing their bodies to survive. Although the circumstances of each woman differed across the globe, I couldn’t help but feel that they are all trapped in the same place, masking their misery with make-up. Be it Thailand where working girls socialise in a glass cage, while lurking sex tourists select them as if they were items on a menu; or India with it’s dingy cramped hallways lined with child prostitutes.
Whores Glory is an eye opening documentary offering an insight into a desperate, complex industry prevalent in all corners of the world. It was difficult and uncomfortable to watch, but it opened my eyes and mind in ways I didn’t expect.
