Experimental Wank

A couple of months ago I saw hardcore electro house fuck ups Soft Pink Truth perform, which was just Drew Daniel behind a laptop bleeping away and occasionally screeching some full frontal inyerface gay lyrics, like HOMOSEXUAL UP THE ASS, HOMOSEXUAL MAKE IT LAST. He is also in the experimental noise makers Matmos, with his boyf Martin Schmidt. The former is fiercely intelligent (within the thirty seconds of talking we on to metaphors within Jean Genet novels. Really.) and the latter is an oh-so-knowing older gent ready to offer a guiding hand or a reprehensive spank. I had a chat with the pair of them after a Matmos show and ended up talking about sex, porn, gay marriage and go-go dancing. Obviously.
