Mammoth Beat Organ debut album: Dunning & Underwood – The Blow Vol. 5

Available now from Front & Follow, the first album of recordings made with the Mammoth Beat Organ.  Throughout 2018 me and Sam Underwood built a semi-automated noisemaking fairground organ. In August that year we spent a week in the studio making recordings with it – resulting in this album.

‘The Blow’ project brings two artists together to formulate a collaborative release of their own making. Each artist has a side of audio to do whatever they want with. The two artists are encouraged to work together on the release, but the length and depth of this collaboration is completely up to them and agreed on a release-by-release basis – there are no set parameters, no fancy rules, no memorandum of understanding, no initiation ceremonies.

Each edition of The Blow comes on limited edition cassette with artwork by letterpress artist David Armes of Red Plate Press (redplatepress.com) and download.

While me and Sam worked together on the project, we decided to split each side of the tape by which module of the MBO was most used — one side makes more use of the wind sequencer, the other the rhythm unit.
