In-Tune: City Wide Walkie Talkie

Style: Electronica

"In the spring of 1999, Jamie Tait, Daryl Askey and Brian Longhurst formed City Wide Walkie Talkie, intending to combine sequenced electronic elements with live improvisations. They released the City Wide Walkie Talkie EP in August 1999. The four cuts outlined the group's lo-fi electro-dub soul production values. Composition and recording of the follow-up to the EP began. Unlike the frenzied production that characterised the EP, CWWT spent months improvising and refining tracks, and improving the recording process. The result was 2001's "Keep The Killing Up" album, a landmark in R&D music. CWWT continue their exploits from the Villa Shangri-La studio. A new album called, "Planet Of The Superspeakers," is in the works." - City Wide Walkie Talkie
