Manorexia is an experimental instrumental project of composer J.G. Thirlwell (primarily of Foetus). Manorexia was formed in 2001. As opposed to Thirlwell's other instrumental group, Steroid Maximus, Manorexia features no collaborators and eschews musical structure for a more free-form and spontaneous approach. The results are often described as cinematic and textural. To date all albums have been released on Thirlwell's own Ectopic Ents label. Until recently have been sold only at concerts or via the Official Foetus Website.

Hot Donkey Biog Formed from the congealed bloody vodka tears and stinging rectal pain of existence amongst the shuffling, hunched, grey masses – Hot Donkey have just one thing on their mind... One unending mission. A quest, if you will allow me to wax wankerish, to inject Technicolor into the grainy, crackled and scratched Eastman Film stock that is modern Earth-based life. Never wavering, never resting, never ordering a de-caff...

With a name as elusive as the melodies that just hint in order to vanish, jasmin’s songs are revealing the possibilities of a minimal guitar trio. Sometimes jointly, sometimes in fierce competition, guitar, bass, drums and minimal electronics are spinning enticing textures. Those pleadings against the imperative of lyrics, you don’t have to call them post rock if you don’t want to. The deliberation annihilates itself by its sheer sustainability: On stage the guitarist frequently collides with the solid wall of bass and drums, disrupting it in feedback fever.

Check out the new album "Music for Microworlds"! Born in Treviso in March 1969, at the age of six Max Waves started studying the piano through private lessons, before entering the conservatory "B. Marcello" in Venezia in 1980.
A lifelong passion for computers and technology in general soon led him to prefer the study of the synthesizer rather than classical exercises to the point where he inevitably abandoned his academic studies and dedicated himself totally to electronic music.
Edinburgh based. Songs with story rather than structure. **update** 1/4/08 it was already written, just unspoken. The band will form and the notes will fly. Side kicks are on their way and they ride the breeze with blank pages ... WATCH THIS SPACE. ----> <-----
