Out on March 25th is the all new album, “Perpetual Skip”, by London-based minimal synth, industrial electronics artist Kevin Hendrick aka Middex. Next to a download the new 10-track album comes as a limited edition white label 12 inch on Outer Reaches.
Originally from Middlesex and now based in East London, Hendrick inaugurated the Middex project in 2015, following stints in post-punk groups including Male Bonding and Primitive Parts. More recently, Hendrick has joined the ranks of punk outfit Adulkt Life, while focusing predominantly on solo material.
After releasing a series of cassettes and one-off 7”s for The Tapeworm and Polytechnic Youth, Middex unveiled the project’s debut album “No Home” in 2018, before returning to The Tapeworm in 2019 for “Scrutiny”, a cassette of solo works and collaborative experiments featuring Lindsay Corstorphine (Sauna Youth, Monotony, Oblate).
Fans of John Bender and early Einstürzende Neubauten should like this release.
Below is Middex’ official video for “Palm is Alive in a Hand that Can Crush”.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
