Broken Shoulderは、ロンドン出身、東京在住のNeil Debnamのソロプロジェクト。2011年に活動を開始し、Audio Antihero (UK), Tape Your Mouth (UK)、Deathbomb Arc (USA)より作品をリリース。エフェクトペダルのループに乗せた即興音楽を重ね合わせ、独自のLo-Fi ドローンの世界を築いている。

300 Bicycle Seats は、2013年夏の2日間、ギター、ベース、キーボード、安物のエフェクトペダルとノイズマシーンを使用して自宅で録音。日常、携帯電話を使い、録音しているフィールドレコーディングを混ぜ合わせ完成させました。

Broken Shoulder is the one man project of Neil Debnam, originally from London but now based in Tokyo, heavily dependent on looping and budget drones and less reliant on rhythm or melody. Pieces are initially improvised sketches and then augmented for recording but continue to evolve afterwards as they are rejigged for live performances.

300 Bicycle Seats was born from two days of recordings at home in the early summer of 2013 made with an electric guitar, bass, a couple of cheap keyboards, some cheaper effects pedals and a noise making machine. These were bulked up with more of the same and some mobile phone field recordings and shaped into a whole, through toils over a hot computer.

Broken Shoulder has released music on Audio Antihero, Tape Your Mouth and Deathbomb Arc and last year’s Title Track EP was inadvertently the template for the Kirigirisu design concept. As ever, we are grateful for the wonderful mastering work of Benjamin Shaw.
