65daysofstatic
Bleak Strategies is a podcast by 65daysofstatic in which we discuss our efforts to find new ways of existing as a band in the current, confused moment. The series mostly features us talking about the possibly interesting, often stupid, definitely unglamorous reality of being in 65daysofstatic, but will also occasionally feature various 65 comrades who have helped us over the thousands of years we have existed as an autonomous musical group. FEEDBACK for this project is essential, so if you listen please find us on Twitter and let us know what you’d like to hear in future episodes or ask any other questions. Contact us here: mail@65daysofstatic.com And if you feel like it, you can leave a review on iTunes too.

EPISODE 3 | MODE OF PRODUCTION, LOUDNESS WARS, EXPLODING AND SCANNING BEETROOT
Featuring our first guest, the indefatigable Dave Sanderson. Co-Producer and engineer on upwards of 7,000 65daysofstatic records. Trying to stick mainly on the topic of how we all co-produce the 65 records, we mumble about all sorts, including: • Dave’s back catalogue. • when ‘producing a 65 record’ actually means telling us to go away and write more songs. • the legend of Alan Smyth, professional Sheffield Wizard. • some of the thinking behind our A Year of Wreckage project • late capitalism etc. etc. exploiting yrself = good art!?? • caffeine-based confrontation.
