Our homage to the label that presented us to the public for the very first time, Shaun Robert's Institute For Alien Research. We loved the idea of this one, a collection of one minute takes on advertising, be they spoof commercials or otherwise, ours being the former. The background is created from a live orchestral performance of John Cage's 4:33 that we found online, speeding it up (but not changing its pitch) to fit the exact one minute requirement of this project. The next constituent was a slightly processed sample loop of a piece of particularly cheesy music that sounded like it belonged in an advert and nowhere else. No apologies to the composer, go and hide your head in shame! For the voices, we turned to the countless online speech generators you can find on the internet, the first time we'd used them, for those keeping score. Magic Bullet, we say IFAR compilations very good, you buy now, you buy now, you buy now...

Enjoy a listen to some of our other output, and remember,

a track a day helps you work, rest and play...

 Let your fingers do the walking, click on 'like',

does exactly what it says on the tin...

 I can't believe it's not Twitter, but actually it is though, it's the

real thing, we liked it so much we bought the company...

Probably the best underground website in the world,

think different...

Have a break, have a chit chat...
