Himself (October-November 1998)

Creating a futuristic fusion of DIY drum'n'bass, mad bastard guitar and urban lyrical sprawl, Darkroom - the brainchild of No Man's Tim Bowness - fashion a dazzling sound of latter-day psychedelic chaos from a world of dimly-lit, drugged-up drudgery. Well, that's according to their press release anyway. Think of a cross between Eno, Japan and The Aphex Twin, throw in a few hardcore beats and you're nearly there. Daylight is probably best heard after one too many spliffs.
