Artists: THF Drenching

THF Drenching is a free improvisor and composer of musique concrète, based in Manchester, England.  As a dictaphone-player, he was one fifth of Derek Bailey's final band Limescale.  He has a duo with Otto Willberg, another with Odie ji Ghast, and a trio with David Birchall and Phillip Marks.  As a poet (writing under his state-sanctioned name, Stuart Calton) he's published several books.  A new book, "Blepharospasms" (2016) is nearly finished.  As a composer, he's completed many albums of musique concrète, electronic music and various dubious overdubbed semi-improvised amalgams.  These have been on sale at Fenland Hi-Brow Recordings for years, but are now being made freely available on Free Music Archive instead.  SEE THEM.  I'm supposed to be a Communist after all.  Plus there's a recession on, right?  Is your Moms sending you money?

His new record label is Council of Drent, a mail-order joint residing at  You've got all these other ones free, knowmsayn?, so why not simply buy those albums and then listen to them?  On your MF stereo?
