John Doran is a guest on Stuart Maconie's show at midnight

The Quietus were pleased to be asked back on to BBC 6 Music's Freakier Zone tonight at midnight to talk about music utilising voice manipulation.

You can stream the show live here tonight or listen for the next week on iPlayer.

Among the artists played and discussed in the show are Katie Gately, Fever Ray, Holly Herndon, Aphex Twin, Philip Glass and David Bowie.

In a rash moment of madness, tQ Editor John Doran described certain of Derek Bailey's recordings as sounding like a "badger having sex with an acoustic guitar". He is already feeling guilty about this and would like to point out that he was just showing off and now feels very remorseful about the statement.
