Listen to an exclusive 90 minute mix by Glasgow's Boobs Of Doom

October 2016

The Scottish doom-hop duo present a beastly mix exclusively for The Wire

Glasgow doom-hop duo Boobs Of Doom attracted considerable praise earlier this year when their seventh album (((WHITE NOISE))) lurched into earshot. A blend of dirty drones, spectral samples and pulverising beats, the album invited comparison to the likes of Sunn O))), Techno Animal, Godflesh and Mogwai.

The follow-up WOW IS DEAD is released on 30 October. It’s described by band members Sadsack and Thumper as “deeply personal” and “a concept album”. Though it will be made available free of charge, downloaders are urged to donate to one or all of the following charities: PDSA; The Scottish Association for Mental Health; Children's Hospital of Orange County; GIFT; Make A Wish.

In the meantime, the Boobs present an exclusive 90 minute mix, produced and directed exclusively for The Wire. Sadsack sets the scene:

“You have just been dumped; yr ‘friends’ drag you unwilling into the city of night in an attempt to distract you from yr broken heart; an anarchist prankster group has dowsed the city with hallucinogens; a prison riot, a mob of clandestine serial killer convention delegates and a party political conference of the FILTH spills onto the streets; there will be blood… Can you find yr one true love amidst the pandemonium? Can you survive… BEAST NIGHT!”
