Cursor Miner

b. Robert Tubb, Chichester, Western Sussex, Britain. ‘The name Cursor Miner is basically because I wish to unearth brand-new sounds from the info rock encounter, ’ Tubb described in Flux mag, of his music producing alter ego, ‘I’m utilizing a cursor because the drill.’ He provides released music for the Intolerable, Uncharted Sound and Lo Recordings brands in addition to adding to Noodles’ THE ENTIRE Death Of Great compilation, a neologistic collection designed as an outright rejection of expected notions of great. The (notebook) musician provides accepted an infatuation with Gary Numan’s ‘Vehicles’ and on his 2002 debut Explosive LITTLE BIT OF Brain juxtaposed such 80s-motivated synth-pop with psychedelia, rock and roll and hardcore digitalia. Alternately dystopian and utopian, Explosive LITTLE BIT OF Mind drew assessment to Beck, Visage, the Human being League and also Syd Barrett.

The unhinged majesty of ‘Me And My Clone’ (from 2005’s Takes on God) produced the Syd Barrett referrals explicit. Exactly the same recording’s ‘The Sport Of Kings’ was a far more straightforward electro pop tune and directed just how towards 2007’s Danceflaw, which the musician ironed out a few of his wilder tendencies to make a seamless dance traditional. Tubb can be a observed remixer, enjoying membership achievement in 2005 along with his mixture of Temposhark’s ‘Small White Rest’.
