MidiMidis

MIDIMIDIS represent a strikingly fresh surge of creativity orchestrated in 8-bit by two brothers-in-law, who enjoy spending time in their bedrooms experimenting with retro midi sounds in 8-bit on their old dusty unreliable laptop, an AMSTRAD CPC 464, one GAMEBOY, a ZX SPECTRUM, one GAMEGEAR and two scuzzy broken guitars. MIDIMIDIS create their minimalist fuzzy-buzzy 8-bit music by meticulously weaving the harsh feedback-heavy guitars of Sonic Youth together with the sharp angular work of Talking Heads, Kraftwerk and Human League. To coincide with their DIY punk ethic, the two often of play guerrilla gigs at house parties and in random locations using their (rather battered) PSP, a mega-phone and 2 guitars. However, when it comes to recording, the MIDIMIDIS choose to record all of their guitars, bass and vocals on an analogue reel-to-reel 8-track whilst mixing the entire midi samples and overall sound digitally. MIDIMIDIS’ debut demo: ‘note-to-self’ was released by the lads worldwide on iTUNES on 25th February 2008 with physical hand-made copies available but limited initially to just 100 now SOLD OUT copies. Following their release of debut ‘note-to-self,’ PSW (PlayStation World) Magazine gave MIDIMIDIS their first national feature in April making them the FIRST DIY band EVER to be featured in a games magazine.
