Prefuse 73 – One Word Extinguisher

One Word Extinguisher

One Word Extinguisher celebrated its 10th birthday last week.

I remember first hearing “Detchibe” on the Warp homepage back in early 2003. I had heard nothing like it before. It introduced me to instrumental hip-hop, or glitch-hop, or whatever you’re supposed to call whatever this is.

One of the best albums released in the new millennium. Just listen to it if you haven’t.

Indie Distribution in London Burned To Ground

Yikes.

And Norman Records weighed in with its own grim pronouncement, writing: “Dreadful news from the rioting in London last night. The Sony DADC warehouse was burnt down last night which holds all the stock for PIAS UK (our largest supplier). Many of the labels like 4AD, Domino, Warp, Rock Action, Matador etc will probably have had their UK stock destroyed. Obviously this will have a massive effect on the music industry (and us).
