why we love this
In this reissue, rich textures and intricate layers merge into a melodic sound. It’s hard to tell where one instrument ends and the other begins. All from Adam Oko’s bedroom studio.
about the record
A Second Circle reissue of Adam Oko’s Diet Of Germs on vinyl. Originally released on cassette via the now defunct Astro:dynamics label, Oko recorded and produced its four tracks almost entirely by himself, in his bedroom studio overlooking Clissold Park.
Now based in Tokyo but having spent most of his life living between London & Canterbury, as well as producing music and running a regular radio show on NTS radio, Adam also makes mixed media artwork and designs installations & interiors.
All instruments on ‘Diet Of Germs’ were performed by Adam himself except the solo on Suketo which was played by Raven Bush – Kate Bush’s nephew & was actually recorded in Kate’s old studio in South London.
