OPIUM JUKEBOX / Music To Download Pornography By (2000)

Martin Atkins is no slacker. He’s been a part of Public image Ltd, Ministry, Pigface, Killing Joke, The Damage Manual, and Murder Inc, among others. He’s one of the finest drummers you’ll ever hear, which makes this release even more bizarre.
It’s not the percussion heavy experience you’d expect. Instead, he takes existing songs by other artists and turns them into weird Dub/Bhagra/Electronic/WTF style chill-out tunes. It doesn't matter if you loved or hated the original version because they're so far removed from the original aesthetic that they sound completely new. Part of the fun is not looking at the track list and trying to figure out what the hell you're hearing.
