SELF-HELP 'Grand Hotel Ibis' debut release

First release from SELF-HELP, the collaborative project between myself and the writer John Doran. He likes to describe it as “industrial dub post-punk Pam Ayres”.
John does the words and I do the sounds (mostly on a Bugbrand two-frame), assisted by members of Gnod, Teeth of the Sea, VALVE, Lone Taxidermist and The Utopia Strong amongst others. Bonus remix of ‘Fundamentalism No.1’ by none other than Chris Carter (Throbbing Gristle/CarterTuttiVoid)!
10% of all Tesla Tapes sales go to tree planting projects.


“John assured me Self-Help was going to be an OMD covers band.” - Mark Dicker


And, whoa, Chris Carter!

Hi all, hope everyone is well in these turbulent times.
Just a little update regarding a mini-mini-EP release now up on our Bandcamp page - two versions of the original collaborative track that gave birth to SELF-HELP, initially made as an audio accompaniment for the publication of John Doran’s book ‘Jolly Lad’.
