The compilation CD given away to guests at the Monsta Mash. Rocking and rollicking.



Cyberphobe: a non-musical entity of intermittent output nursing a collection of aging synthesizers, effects units and recording equipment and producing the occasional piece of musical collage. The resultant albums offer a jaundiced view of contemporary society and all who sail in her, fleshed out with voices as diverse as Sylvia Plath, George W Bush, John Cage and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and music from all corners of the planet. We try to be inclusive - no-one escapes our scorn and loathing. If you're not us, you're against us and we hate you.

Leila Adu travels the spaceways of music without limits. From tours of the US, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the Far East, London’s Time Out says, ‘Avante-garde pop that recalls Nina Simone and Tim Buckley,” and Italy’s popular music mag Blow Up describes her last album Ode to the Unknown Factory Worker as “splinters of folk and blues but also hypnotic and ghostly prog.” Steve Albini who produced her second album dubbed her “Spooky Adu.”

Leila was awarded a doctoral fellowship in composition at Princeton in 2011 — the same year she was voted MTV Iggy’s artist of the week.

Leila’s unreleased fifth album and new live set take a new direction into Avantronica, replacing her acoustic sound for layers of, both live and pre-recorded, organ and vintage synth mixed with Ableton Live music software. The live set is a duo of Leila’s vocals, synth and piano with New York based Italian drummer, Federico Ughi who divides his time between New York and international tours with legends such as Daniel Carter, William Parker and spends time playing with Ornette Coleman and her latest recordings with kiwi beatmaker/drummer, Riki Gooch.
