Blackest Ever Black & Idle Hands on Berlin Community Radio


Following a month off, Blackest Ever Black will be back on Berlin Community Radio on Monday 26 October, 6pm-8pm CET, joined for this show by a special guest and very old friend of ours: Chris Farrell, boss of the Idle Hands record store and label in Bristol. We first crossed paths 12 or so years ago, when Chris was working at the late Imperial Records in Bristol; he’s played records for us at a couple of BEB parties in the past, and this month also sees the release of his No Vampire mixtape through our Krokodilo imprint. Oh and we’re┬áplanning to hatch a joint label, Silent Street, in 2016, if time allows. Chris taught us at least seven tenths of what we know that’s worth knowing, and our tastes intersect at a lot of different levels – from winsome indie-pop on up (or down?) – so it should be an interesting couple of hours of music.

Krokodilo Tapes from Chris Farrell and New Private Window


The latest two instalments in our Krokodilo Tapes are available to pre-order now. No Vampire is a slaughtering 90-minute reggae mixtape from our old friend Chris Farrell, the man behind the Idle Hands record store and label in Bristol; The Desperate Hours is a collage of “self-surveilling internet field recordings and derivative, masturbatory ambience” by Leicester’s New Private Window.

Each of these titles is available in an edition of 100.
