FEATURE 56 - Holger Hiller

Experimental wiz from eighties, Holger Hiller in the top video cut-up piece from 1988 predates Coldcut by ten years or more. The next track Whippets from 1986 features the late great Billy Mckensie from the Associates. The bottom track is Jonny du Lump from 1983. Holger Hiller was a pioneer in constructing music out of raw, looped or found sounds, non, despite all the technical advances which make all this sort of stuff so easy these days, have ever got near to the aural punch of his compositions.
