Biography

Heavy Funk Bass, Hairy Fuzzy Balls, Hope Fun Baby, Hippy’s Full Brunch, Heavenly Fried Bananas, Hideous Face Bends, Highlands First Bank, Hydrogen Fart Bomb, Hen’s Breath Fixation, Hitchcock’s First Blunder…or a technical term regarding aural expansion developments called High Frequency Bandwidth.These initials are important. ‘All our song titles fit the letters H. F. B.,’ says Dr Alex Paterson, who has embarked on the new High Frequency Bandwidth project with Dom Beken.

The two men are about to make some Huge F***ing Broohaha with their mission to inject some original hiphop innovation, sonic anarchy and earth-level raunch into the electronic foragings they’ve become known for with, for starters, The Orb.

Dom, making radio and TV commercials, also finds time for a band called Belka and Stelka, who released last year’s Tales From The Projection Room album. He started as a drummer in Liverpool after finishing his history degree there, going on to the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts. Dom started hanging out at the city’s Parr Street Studios, graduating from making tea to programming and engineering, working with artists including Manson, Echo and the Bunnymen, Pete Wiley and Graeme Park. Since relocating to London he has worked with names including Bowie, Lulu, Placebo’s Brian Molko, Liberty X and Pink Floyd’s Rick Wright. A long-term collaboration with Pink Floyd’s touring bassist Guy Pratt not only led to scoring TV programmes like Channel 4’s Spaced but to his old friend Dr Alex Paterson.

    Love these guys, they did the entire soundtrack for the downloadable PS3 game, Pixeljunk Shooter. Kind of remind me of Ratatat.
