The Emperor Machine

is one of several monikers Andy Meecham uses for his elusive musical output. Together with Dean Meredith he is one of the undisputed pioneers of modern club music. First as Bizarre Inc., since 1999 as the Chicken Lips they continue to rule dancefloors all around the world.

Which song do you listen to when...
you feel like 1982?
Afrika Bambaataa & The Soul Sonic Force - Planet Rock

This speaks for itself!

you relax on a beach?
Steely Dan - Peg

Summer beats!

you ride a bicycle?
Hawkwind - Silver Machine

I used to sing this out loud when I rode my bike to the shops... err strange kid!

you go to a club?
Dinosaur - Kiss Me Again

This has got to be one of my all time personal faves.

you run naked through a cornfield?
Sly & The Family Stone - Runnin' Away

Probably the best record to run away to .... ever!

you prepare for an important date?
Spike Milligan - The Q5 Piano Tune

Don’t take life to seriously and just listen to this!

you are in a depressive mood?
Donald Fagen - New Frontier

I can remember watching the video to this on TV and feeling absolutely inspired.

you want to disturb your neighbours?
The Emperor Machine - An Introduction To Outer Space

Pure sci-fi fodder just the wayI like it.

you drive a car late at night?
The Doors - Riders On The Storm

It’s such a great tune to drive to.

you fall asleep?
Kraftwerk - Computer Love

I’ve been playing this loads just recently and it’s always been when I’m pissed up... and then I fall asleep.

you are love sick?
Depeche Mode - Free Love

This song has so many great emotional memories , it’s the only choice.

you make breakfast?
Glen Campbell - Wichita Lineman

This track is perfect to make breakfast to because of its lack of bass (my ears don’t do bass in the morning anymore.)

you make love?
Gary Numan - Music For Chameleons

Because I’ve done it before with this track playing in the background.

you pretend to be married?
Mrs Miller - A Lovers Concerto

This record is so crazy, it’s the only choice.

you paint your apartment?
Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon

I’ve just finished loads of DIY and I was mostly listening to Pink Floyd.

you rob a bank?
Heaven 17 - (We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thang

Reminds me of being young and having loads of energy (I’m gonna need loads of energy to rob a bank).

you have to spend a night in a spooky hotel?
Jilted John - Jilted John

Laughter is the only cure for being shit scared in a spooky hotel.

you sit in the subway?
John Foxx - Underpass

If I did sit in subways, which I don’t, I think this would be an appropriate choice.

you surf the internet?
George Duke - Brazilian Love Affair

No matter how many times the computer crashes, it’s impossible to get stressed out if this tune’s playing.

you wake up?
Cybotron - Clear

Purely because it was left on the deck (still spinning) from the night before...

you walk in the rain?
23 Skidoo - Last Words

I can’t think of a reason why, but I’m sure this would be a good choice.
