us a little a bit about Where To Now? and some of the artists you put out.
started as a bar night in the Penthouse, Brighton. It was a music-nut kind of
place above a venue called the Freebutt – the sort of place you could go any
night of the week and hear new stuff either in the Penthouse (where everyone in
Brighton seemed to have a night) or in the venue below. Myself, Matt, and later
James, would spin mostly new wave, minimal synth, no-wave and neo dub stuff.
We’d sit around talking about our latest 7" hauls, dancing sometimes, and
we used to make compilation CDs to give away. We did this for maybe a couple of
years before progressing to a radio show on Totally Radio. Around 2009-2010 we
started putting out tapes on a very casual basis, firstly by Moon Gangs, who is
a good friend of ours, then PDP, who I was at college with, then Weak Notes,
Chevalier Avant Garde, and so on. Slowly but surely we added more and more releases,
in a very organic way. There wasn’t a grand scheme. However, we were noticeably
moving towards a more experimental electronic sort of world, and as we started
getting deeper into it, we thought we could maybe take this a bit more
seriously and that's how the WANDA GROUP 12" came about. Matt knew Lou
[Johnstone, who records as WANDA GROUP], so we reached out with a proposal.
