B: Resist The Devil On Tape
Zerocrop is the pseudonym of London based musician Parker, an independent artist who has been releasing albums through the website www.zerocrop.com since 2000. The music is hypnotic mix of complex vocal melodies and spoken word sequences on unsettling themes, set against a rich backwash of pedal steel, guitars and electronics. Zerocrop has remixed, written songs for and performed with the incomparable Billie Ray Martin and regularly creates the show music for award winning milliner Justin Smith.
Zerocrop writes: “I first started making music on a mono cassette radio when I was thirteen and I still have all the cassettes I made. These early works featured a great deal of piano, screaming and saucepans. Plus ça change. A cassette for The Tapeworm is the perfect place to revisit them and to dust off the Roland Juno 6 and the Casio MT-41 in order to fashion for my listeners yet another journey into musical mental instability.” Zerocrop, London, 15 August 2010.
