The Incomprehensible Static (TIS) is the solo project of Pete Darrington aka Pete Static (from the bands Cable, Hudson Super 6, GodNo!, etc., but also co-founder of independent record label Reckless Yes), born out of lockdown boredom. Together with some talented friends – Jay Churchley (Nervous Twitch) and Darius Hinks (Cable) – he recorded the mini-album Transmitting LIVE From The FUTURE! in his garage. The eight instrumental surf-punk songs are retro-futuristic and very suitable to accompany old video images. For example, Quarter Mile Burnout is a celebration of the golden era of drag racing, Earth Vs The Flying Saucers is a homage to the classic kitsch sci-fi 1956 movie of the same name, and UVB-76 is about a secret Russian radio transmission. This record is a new pinnacle of the genre.
Transmitting Live From The Future is out now digitally, on CD and limited edition 10″ eco vinyl LP thorugh Reckless Yes.
