The former Napalm Death member's first LP will come through Type later this month.
The British artist was a founding member of grindcore originators Napalm Death back in the 1980s. He left the group early on but was heavily involved in their seminal 1987 debut Scum, and also worked on fellow former Napalmer Mick Harris's Scorn project in the early '90s. Bullen's debut solo album comprises two electronic experiments inspired by the primitive technology and tape manipulation techniques of the '60s. All of the sounds on Component Fixations were sourced from field recordings Bullen made from his own home and garden. The album will come through Type, the experimental label whose recent releases have come from the likes of Pye Corner Audio, Vatican Shadow and Pete Swanson.
