Rising from the moribund Cornish slurtronic folk scene, The Kemper Norton Collective first gained prominence through its campaign to redefine South West Water as a range of personal and psychogeographic experiences, rather than a corporate financial brand name. The legendary Radio 3 show Mixing It gave them some valuable airplay and publicity but ultimately the campaign failed.
Embittered yet determined , the collective expanded from its Kernow base to bring coastal slurtronics to Sussex and the rest of the UK, using the then-primitive Internet to communicate and gain new followers. Copies of their first compilation album, Season One, were distributed to Northern England, Alaska, Southend and Brazil. Beautifully designed and hand-crafted by eternal ally Miss Noma, this epic CD featured the work of analogue princess burnthouse, the ravening work drone employeeseven, the psychedelic acoustics of Speckle and Singularity Jones, and the terrifying and mysterious Radiant Boys, along with collective overlord Kemper Norton himself.
