Plastic Platform: C13 Caterpillarmen
Caterpillarmen cite 'Yes, King Crimson, Gentle Giant, Giraffes? Giraffes!, Battles, Beegees, Supertramp' as their influences - and as diverse as those bands are, it's obvious after hearing two seconds of any track from their Bandcamp page that they're not afraid to wear their influences on their multi-coloured sleeves.
With that in mind, we thought we'd ask them to put together a mix for us, and guess what? It's diverse.
- 1. Flow coma - AFX
- 2. Baby be mine - Michael Jackson
- 3. Free hand - Gentle Giant
- 4. I'm drunk - Domo Genesis feat. Mike G
- 5. Come To Daddy, Little Lord Faulteroy Mix (slow)- Aphex Twin
- 6. Oh - Fugazi
- 7. Mushroom - Can
- 8. Computerwelt 2 - Kraftwerk
- 9. One word - Mahavisnu Orchestra
