The press release:

‘These Songs Are Obsolete’ EP

Musician, producer and inventor Sam Battle, aka LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER returns today with his new EP ‘These Songs Are Obsolete’ and accompanying video for single ‘Waiting For The World To End’. He also announces his plans to open a museum before the end of 2020, ‘The Museum of Everything Else’ will be home to many of his creations along with other retro technology and musical inventions.

LMNC’s new EP features previous singles Desperado Vespa, Daydreamer, Stand And Deliver, and his last single Shock Horror alongside this new single and additional tracks Safety, Viva Forever and Stand and Deliver Excerpt.
Lead track Waiting For The World to End is an aptly titled focus track, a confrontational yet wildly catchy anthem for the current climate. It was written in 2019 and is accompanied by an incredible action movie style music video which LMNC co conceived with Johnny Goddard of Youth Hymns who directed it, and was shot during lock down in Ramsgate, England. The video see’s Sam trying to single handily save the world from a catastrophic event.
When asked about the EP, LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER says “These songs are obsolete is just talking about the constant progression in technology, leaving behind

so many bits of tech year by year that is still perfectly useable. I have a fascination with obsolete technology; it’s what I use in my daily life and I wrote and recorded these songs on obsolete tech, sort of trying to show that you don’t’ need the latest gizmo's to make and record music.”

He continues “I love obsolete tech so much I’m working on opening a museum filled with it, it’s going to be called The Museum of Everything Else which should be opening in late 2020, it will showcase many strange pieces of obsolete tech as well as machines I’ve built such as the furby organ and the Gameboy megamachine, it even has the latest machine that I built directly onto the wall of the museum last month called the KILODRONE, which is a 4 metre by 3 metre 1000 oscillator synthesizer, pretty sure it’s a world record!!” See the Kilodrone here.
