Benji in his own words is “a struggling wanna-bohemian/semi-professional purveyor of decadence based in East London, singing conversational tales of the wildly mundane and playing a guitar built in time immemorial, found washed up on the banks of the Thames in Greenwich.”
In short though all you need to know is that this guy is a fantastic songwriter with the best taste in music and films. End of. Find out about all his musical activities HERE and more about the Climbing Molehill Mountain release HERE.
MADE EXCLUSIVELY FOR EDITIONS OF YOU…
Here at Editions of You we love, love, LOVE the work of Graham Dunning. We’ve stocked two releases in the past and Winning by Negotiations is the latest. To our absolute joy, this was made exclusively for us, a minuscule edition of 4. The cassettes used were from an existing box set called ‘Winning in Negotiations’. The tapes and box were recycled and the covers are made from parts of the original plastic box with tracing paper overlay. The recordings made in April 2014 by the Music by the Meter method (automated machines were left to run and each tape recorded in succession so each is different to the last while containing sound from the same set of sources.) Graham was interviewed as part of a documentary about Editions of You and used the recordings of his voice in these interviews as a source in the sound collage.

Some lovely friends of Editions of You are releasing the latest edition of their fabulous art zine Indestructible Energy, with a combination of visual and sonic content.

We are lucky to have the work of Mutual Extermination Club here in our archive. Go along and support all you London folks!
Here it is … the first ever Editions of You cassette mixtape! I made it for the wonderful OOMK but I cant believe I’ve not done this before to promote the distro…
Recently I did a talk at Arts at the Old Fire Station in Oxford about Editions of You, as part of their Makers Month. It went down a storm - people were so excited about musical makers!
We have various beautiful items in the archive and distro by the amazing sound and textile artist, Felicity Ford. For her latest venture, Felix is printing a book turning everyday visual inspiration into gorgeous, stranded colourwork! The KNITSONIK Stranded Colourwork Sourcebook will be accompanied by an audio release called The KNITSONIK Audible Textures Resource. Felix has been busily running a Kickstarter campaign to raise the money needed to design and produce this book, and thanks to the amazing enthusiasm and support of knitters and sound buddies everywhere, this campaign reached its funding goal of £9,000 earlier in April! But to be at the front of the queue when it comes out in November (and to get extra goodies) pledge to the campaign in its last few hours, while you still can!
