On the eve of his appearance at Semibreve, Portugal's annual celebration of "exploratory music and digital arts", Mark Fell guides us through his most beloved releases


Farmers Manual - fsck
Sorry: the answers are getting shorter because I'm fully knackered. Right now I'm mid-transfer at Lisbon airport after long travel and several days in a tunnel under Newcastle. Released courtesy of Russell Haswell, this record is a seminal moment in the Mego saga. If we think about the album as having a kind of culturally understood form, with this record it feels like Farmers Manual have done their utmost to destroy that form.
