PIMMON is arguably Australia’s most well known and most successful experimental music producers, having recorded for various labels around the world (including Tigerbeat6 and Fat Cat) and collaborating with the likes of FENNESZ and OREN AMBARCHI.

Over the preceding eighteen months, PIMMON released five albums of new material, from 2009’s ‘Smudge Another Yesterday’ to his forthcoming split cassette on Spanish Magic, which comes backed with one of his earliest recordings from 1983 under the name YCLEPT DINMAKERS.

Stu Buchanan talks with Pimmon about this productive patch and discovers whether his early 80s material is really worth a listen, and whether any of the so-called chillwave cassette bands actually sound any good with the hiss removed.
