Arbeit Macht Frei...work will set you free. Always assuming you can find any...
Austerity
"The plan is working", our glorious leader David Cameron constantly informs us. If the plan is more unemployment, poverty, austerity and curtailed rights, then yes - it certainly is.

Ahead of Workfare being introduced in the UK in April 2014...
Winter Uptown
God Doesn't Like This Old Thinking
Lost In Translation
Ah - the good old days back in the old country....
A "new" song made from samples taken from Bessie Smith's 1929 recording of St Louis Blues, with added radio noise. One of those things you try just to see if they work (well my name IS Frankenstein). Check out the original below.
Metallradiowellen, ja ?
Guest vocalist...a Blackbird.
Diffusion
Chant
Begins and ends with nuns. But then, doesn't everything ?
Chinese Whispers
Is there anyone out there ?
Did you bring your radio ? Good.
An element of this track was sampled from a song written and produced by Barry White... can you spot it ?
Title is an anagram of "Molly the Cat" - see the video !
A true story...well, a true legend, anyway.
Low Spheres... very different from High Spheres.
Elves & Flowers XXXIII
Elves & Flowers XXXII
Elves & Flowers XXXI
Elves & Flowers XIII
Elves & Flowers XXX
Elves & Flowers XXIX
Elves & Flowers XXVIII
Reactionary old bastards
Elves & Flowers XXVI
Elves & Flowers XXV
I lurch crablike across the boundaries of public decency. I feel no shame. Its just a job. Someone has to do it...
Elves & Flowers XXIII
I have absolutely no idea what prompted this one. Must have been on strong medication or something...
Elves & Flowers XXI
The Lobster God goes "Snap ! Snap ! Snap !"
Elves & Flowers XIX
root & branch, branch & root...
Dark Arts...
Your radio has just gone mental...
A little oriental sounding something...
Based on a Zen proverb. No, really, it is.
Incorporating a little throat singing
The dialogue comes from Ingmar Bergan's 1957 film The Seventh Seal. Set in Sweden during the Black Death, it tells of the journey of a medieval knight and a game of chess he plays with the personification of Death, who has come to take his life…read more
A short rhythmic thing for any belly-dancers in the house.
???? and ???, not to mention ??? ????. But you know how it is.
Open the box... Dont open the box...
them damn aliens keep jamming my frequency with their incessent chatter. And bongos.
XIII - unlucky for some.
The fate of the final Pope...beheaded, stake through the heart and buried at a crossroads.(this is fiction - no live Popes were harmed during the making of this track).
I know EXACTLY what you're thinking.... and the truth is, I dont have a clue as to why its called "Crab Telex Myth".
An enthusiastic audience is so important... that's why we import ours from a sound effects album. Satisfaction guaranteed every time.
If this was a film, at this point indistinct but decidedly menacing figures would be detaching themselves from the shadows and moving slowly but purposefully towards the prey...
Built from samples obtained from photographs via that very handy i2sm programme.
Elves & Flowers XI - sounds like some kind of strange soccer team...
The Law Of Retaliation...
Congratulations... you made it out of the Land Of Ghosts Theme Park. Just step over the bodies of those less fortunate....
>>> X <<<
X XXX XX X XX
Hanging's too good for 'em...
Back into the box, you brutes...
from the album PROJECT X
Science - huh ! What is it good for ?
...die young. Or so they claim.
Title comes from a line in a Phil Rickman novel...think the character was talking about Satanists.
A sonic journey, starting at a weird end-of-the-pier show and ending in a psychotic metal foundry. Or something...
A percussive piece created from a photograph by the i2sm programme.
One for our German listeners...
Brontide is, I believe, a geological term. It has nothing in particular to do with the music - unless you know better.
Maybe not so much of a cover as a complete deconstruction/rewiorking. Recorded for a "jubilee" themed competition on mp3unsigned.com
The Frankenstein marching band cuts loose...
Q. Hey, what are those angels doing ? A. [all together now...]
Thanks to Mr. Shakespeare for help with the lyrics. This entire album is now uploaded.
...what then ?
The welcome message that used to play whenever anyone visited the MySpace page we no longer have.
Frankenstein Sound Lab pays homage to the Shangri-Las. After a fashion.
Angels ? Cant trust them, mate...
In space no-one can hear you scr... hello ? Hello ? Anyone there ?
Watch out ! Take heed !
Another previously unreleased track from the early cassette days.
Track 5
It'll end in tears... Oh - it has.
Back in the day, this one actually achieved UK national airplay on BBC Radio 3...strange, but true.
Made up entirely from samples from xmas songs...hell indeed. How many can you spot ?
Oh yes it is Jingle Bells...give it time to gather speed...although admittedly not as it's generally performed. Well, its a deconstruction, isn't it ? What did you expect ?
Anything with the word "Silent" in its title is just asking for trouble.
Ebenezer tells it like it is.
Ding-dong..Happy Solstice
From BAH ! HUMBUG !, a 2003 Xmas album of sorts. Watctch this space over the next week or so for more seasonal deconstructions.
Another popular attraction at the theme park. They just love the kiddies to death...literally.
A "lost" early track - this has never been previously released on cassette or CD. The passage of time has erased any memory of why it got that title.
I met an old man on the way He wore a mask like Sister Ray And this is what he had to say - "We want more songs about elves & flowers." I asked him - "Are you sure ?" He replied "Yes ! More !"
Created to celebrate 11-11-11 last week. Everything on this piece was recorded on 11-11-11, edited into samples 11 seconds long, then rebuilt into a piece 11min 11 seconds long. Oh, and also includes a random poem created by choosing 11 random…read more
God v Nietzsche ... Nietzsche wins by a knock-out. video features the highlights.

From the album MORE SONGS ABOUT ELVES & FLOWERS [2010] Yes, its very short. Although from another point of view its exactly as long as it needs to be.
From the album LIFE IS HARSH IN THE LAND OF GHOSTS THEME PARK. This is the thirteenth track on the album, and so on the cover read '13 - Unlucky For some'. Geddit ? Oh well, suit yourself...

From the album LIFE IS HARSH IN THE LAND OF GHOSTS THEME PARK. And yes, the distortion is [mainly] intentional. If you were an Ancestor, you'd distort too. Trust me.
From the album IT WAS A DARK & STORMY NIGHT. The words came originally from some junk email scam we received - got more from them than they ever did from us !

From the album JOE MEEK SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH
From the album THE MAN FROM TAURED.
From the album LIFE IS HARD IN THE LAND OF GHOSTS THEME PARK. The title was borrowed from a Dennis Wheatley novel... his foray into UFOs, and not a Satanist in sight !
A preview of the imminent PROJECT X album. The title ? Because it was recorded on the day when the Moon was full in Capricorn. Any occult properties gained therby are purely coincidental.
