Bio from 61: Throcke is the creation of Christopher Mollineaux Carson. It is a solo
studio project involving electronic and organic elements - distorted
organs, cascading drums and soothing guitar melodies as well as quirky
clicks and blurps. Occasionally there are layers of vocals, or perhaps a
windy wash of rain.Throcke self-produced his debut EP Advance
Longing in 2005, followed by a string of single tracks. He then slowed
down the songwriting for a few years while playing drums for the band
UMAMI. 2009 marks his return, with the full-length album Sometimes Not
Unpointful.At the moment, all of Throcke's albums are available
for free at
Bio from Oddio Overplay:Throcke is
Christopher Carson of Brooklyn, New York. His music features layers of his many instruments, clever electronic sounds, and field
recordings of airplanes, water, elevators and birds. Working away in
his studio, Throcke creates music that makes the world a better place.Wondering about origin of the name of Throcke? Here's the scoop!"Throcke
does not mean 'The Rock.' It's actually a nickname that dates back to
7th grade when my weird friends and I started a band called Jimmy and
the Rotting Potatoes. No one was named Jimmy (well, there was an
'essence' we called Jimmy, who was responsible for lights flickering
and doors suddenly opening). Anyway, we tried to come up with some
ridiculous names for ourselves, like S.L.U.G., Turnip, Big Andy,
RigorMortis, and Throckmorton S. Peagood XVII. What started as a joke
somehow stuck and evolved into Throcke."Christopher has
been a drummer and songwriter for many bands, including Planet Nine,
Hurka, Grasshopper Highway, Exit Ocean and UMAMI. He has also written
scores for several short films. In fact, during the days, he edits film
and video, mostly for television commercials.His Throcke
project gets most of his creative time these days -- to the good
fortune of we the listeners! Enjoy his new Sometimes Not Unpointful CD,
and drop some cash in his tipjar, won't you?
