(On the) Spectrum: Red – Artist Bios – Pt. 1

Our second “pay what you want” compilation is here! “(On the) Spectrum: Red” is a follow-up to our Winter 2019 Sampler and as the title attests includes music by artists on the spectrum/creatives with autism. We’re celebrating the Autism Awareness Month in style, so come join us.

Seeds of the compilation were sown back in 2016, when Chris Bynes (aka Lightning Pill / Mynameisblueskye) approached IHN with the idea of putting together a release featuring artists on the spectrum. The original compilation did not survive, but fret not as this new release puts together both original submissions and new ones – Version 2.0 of the original, if you will.
Its time to go over first half of the compilation and talk about the artists that contributed. And speaking of contributions – we would like to say “thank you” to Dubbed Tapes, How to Fight Records and Whettman Chelmets for their support. Pay a dollar, pay two or just help spread the word – it all makes a difference to us and the artists featured on “Red”.

Anthony Rochester

AR reminds Radio Khartoum of Eggstone circa 1993: coming out of nowhere (Tasmania is Mr. Rochester’s home) with a gorgeous sound; and almost completely unaware of the bands you would name when attempting to describe the music. So how did RK discover the Tasmanian? Why, through the Norwegians, naturally. Christoffer from Nice System/Remington Super 60 and Christer from Micromars put together a compilation to document the young Norwegian scene…making Anthony into an honorary Norseman in the process.
