22 May 2013 – Mr. Oizo – Analog Worms Attack / Analog Worms Sequel – over on Wicked Guilty Pleasures

What the hell is an analog worm, you ask?

A Worm is an analog musical effects processor.  More on that in a minute.

This minimalist song, from the 1999 debut by Quentin Dupieux, is not his best known song.  But it does have the coolest audio effects I have heard on any song.  His simple but noisy work has been an influence on electronic music all these years later.

The song – in fact, the whole album – was recorded exclusively on analog, and not digital equipment.  This is noteworthy.  He got these sounds (with the help of scratch DJ friend Feadz) without computers or digital manipulation.

The reinvention of this song, “Analog Worms Sequel”, which is essentially the same track without vocals, scratching, and slightly different instrumentation, was the official close to this album.  (“Flat Beat”, which was a huge hit in the UK, was a bonus track that appeared after five minutes of silence).  Again, analog.
