Fellow DJ Love Jonze turned me onto this strange experimental duo last night when she handed me this CD and told me “you can’t go wrong with this one – it mixes with anything…”. She was right and it did. I played it mixed in with Eugene Chadbourne’s 1986 LP He is Insane and it didn’t miss a beat.

Spin-17 is a duo experimental project which explores contrasts and connections between harmony and noise, electronics and acoustics, toddlers and tea-totallers, obscenity and poetry. No genre is safe and the boundaries between art and doleful indulgence are blurred.
Spin-17 mixes improvisation with experimental composition (with a good amount of caffeine blended in). The effect of diverse influences from Mauricio Kagel to Warner Brothers cartoon soundtracks to early Siouxie and the Banshees can be heard like a diamond in the eye.

Check them out.
