Same Actor-Kraftspiel


Chris Cook, aka Same Actor lives in noisy London. He's been making electronic music of all kinds for many years since his electronic music degree and operates under the names Remote and Hot Roddy, playing sitar along with electronic jiggery pokery. In 2004, Cook also started to play gigs as Same Actor, using various stringed instruments building up soundscapes using no pre recorded or pre sequenced material, but playing with alternative tuning systems and unusual rhythms.

"Kraftspiel" is Chris's tribute to the famed German electro-pop band Kraftwerk, comprising his distinctive interpretations of four classic cuts. The original iconoclasm of the band is here emphasised by being reworked on an instrument usually associated with rigid classical forms.

Ryan Hardy-Does This Face Rock


Website here
Ryan's music is difficult to describe. On the surface, it's playful and silly enough to be suitable for children. Musically, this is complex stuff, rooted firmly in the English tradition of whimsy going back to Noel Coward and beyond. He sings about things with which we can all identify, such as what to do for fun with no money, or feeling dizzy from clumsiness. It's the combination of the mundane with the absurd that makes this music so utterly charming, and typifies the ethos of wombnet.
Original recorded as a session for "The Peter Nelson Show" in 2009.

Zoo-The Animal Hop Remixes


The long awaited Animal Hop remixes collection. Listen With Sarah's indie hit of 2004 remixed by some very individualistic artists. In 2005 Sarah was invited by Rough Trade to contribute Animal Hop to their annual "Counter Culture" cd, on condition that all samples were used with permission. That proved difficult.
