Cultural Apparati is the sound of a glorious, gigantic beast with matted fur and filthy claws ambling through the forest bellowing hopelessly for a mate it will never find.
the musical project of DKF (drum machines & guitar) and A Bhamra (bass). It is the sound of their battle for sonic supremacy over the beast.
Liberated and restricted in equal measures, songs are written and recorded in around an hour with no second takes. The songs, as they are, threaten to unravel beyond control at any moment, and the job of the musicians is to herd the sound into something resembling form, while allowing it to shift and pulsate to it's own monstrous requirements. The fence of control is always wafer thin.
These songs were recorded in a day in Polzeath, Cornwall, between walks to the beach and games of Tud.
