Legendary Birmingham musician Justin K. Broadrick dons his Pale Sketcher guise for this Monday’s FACT mix.
Broadrick has, frankly, seen it all. An early member of grind veterans Napalm Death, he made his name in the late ’80s as a core member of Godflesh, the nihilistic voice of council estate England as transmitted through some of the heaviest music of the era, and a thorough influence on the modern day work of Shackleton and Kevin ‘The Bug’ Martin – the latter of whom Broadrick has frequently collaborated with, as Techno Animal, Curse of the Golden Vampire, and in several other groups.
It’s his Pale Sketcher mask that Broadrick dons for this FACT mix, leaning strongly on hip-hop (Lootpack, Dr. Octagon, RZA) while travelling through various electronic forms that inform the project, including Boards of Canada, dBridge, Oval, Caustic Window and Chain Reaction. There’s even room for forthcoming Pale Sketcher material for Ghostly. It’s a legend at work; tuck in.
