Listen to an excerpt of Charlie Nothing & Dingulator, courtesy of De Stijl Records. Charlie is featured in Byron Coley's Cross Platform article in The Wire 326.

"Charlie Nothing & Dingulator was one of the seemingly myriad 80s Charlie Nothing cassettes and its inclusion was, in part, intended within a 2CD anthology that we'd planned, but the amount of material is too great and the moments therein are too grand to even dream of an edit. Although this is fairly late in Mr Nothing's oeuvre, we can't think of a more fully realised statement regarding the scope of his playing recycled automotive steel guitars and the performing of his Big Dingulator Song Sweet (or 'suite', as it were, a concept of his that implied all songs were but one song) than a reissue of this 1985 manifesto-like piece. What you are about to hear, is Dingulation." Clint Simonson – De Stijl Records
