One of the frustrating aspects of promoting The Womb is the knowledge that, in-between all the post-traumatic concept albums, experimental techno and 15-minute spoken word tracks, we've released dozens of pop songs that can compete with anyone in terms of catchiness and commercial viability. But they can be hard to find among 24 albums and nearly two decades of genre-hopping chameleonica.
Therefore 'Bang' compiles our most instantly accessible and addictively catchy tracks to serve as a Best Of for existing fans, an entry point for new listeners, and an answer to strangers asking me the impossible question "What kind of music do you make?"
It's free to download, and the deluxe USB keyring (as pictured on the cover) costs just $10 Australian including global shipping and includes the videos for 'Sex Club', '1st November 1992', 'The Dusty Groove', 'Snakes and Ladders', 'Footsteps and Fingerprints' and 'Kitty Jay's Grave Revisited'. Please download, listen and pass this on to anyone you think might enjoy The Womb without knowing where to start. If you can also afford to support us on Patreon for a dollar or two a month at http://www.patreon.com/thewomb, that'll help me afford to keep releasing these songs for free.
Thanks to my myriad collaborators and existing supporters. Exciting times are ahead, with The Womb's 25th album coming later this year, and our 20th anniversary next year. In the meantime, please enjoy 'Bang'...

The Womb's 23rd studio album and first ever video album 'Where The Lemon Meets The Teign' is out now. You can download it right here from the Free Music Archive, and the video album is available to watch in full here. There is also a Youtube playlist of the individual videos here.
If you've never heard The Womb before, this album is the perfect introduction to our diverse array of styles, ranging from dark and emotive trip-hop to catchy pop and Floydian ambience, always with a lyrical focus.
