35 years after the release of their critically acclaimed albumVibrant Stapler Obscures Characteristic Growth the British dadaist group Hastings of Malawi have released a new album—an epic sound poem entitled Visceral Underskinnings. It is a 40 minute film without light that reflects on the human condition, on modern society, on the nature of telephony and electricity and an attempt to make sense of the world in which we live that provides no answers.
