The brainchild of our very own Aidan Moffat and Mogwai's Stuart Braithwaite, Aloha Hawaii will, according to the two protagonists themselves, be bringing you random releases of sonic experimentalism as and when they can be arsed. I'll leave it to their self-penned press release to explain exactly where they're coming from with this...
Aloha Hawaii is the result of at least a decade of (often drunken) planning that has finally come to some form of fruition: to record any kind of sounds that please our four ears whenever we have the time, inspiration and enthusiasm. There is no game-plan, no style, no genre; anything that makes us smile will make it onto our records, which will take the form of sporadic, vinyl-only singles to be released on any record label willing to accommodate us over the next year or two. The first label to support our efforts will be our good friends, Chemikal Underground, who release the 10" single Towns On The Moon b/w Iíve Been Bad For Years And Years on September 8th 2008.
There will be no digital formats whatsoever.
This could be a statement about the cheapening of an art-form in a world of disposable download culture or it could simply mean that we're interminably old-fashioned and hopelessly out of date. We also reserve the right to change our minds.
