[BadPanda021] worriedaboutsatan – Pissing About (Golau Glau’s hyper hyper re-mash)
Taking their name from a song by belgian band dEUS, worriedaboutsatan are an electronica band from England. Their music has been tipped as the future of post-rock, as a result of their combination of guitars with IDM flavoured beats and beautiful ambient music.
Golau Glau are an anonymous group of people who collectively create silverpop, and except their music, almost nothing is known. They remixed worriedaboutsatan and this was included in Arrivals Remixed.

The band comprises Gavin Miller and Tom Ragsdale, who met whilst both attending Leeds College of Music in 2005. worriedaboutsatan began as a side project for Miller, but later became the joint focus of Miller and Ragsdale after their other band, Johnny Poindexter, split up.
The band’s mixture of rock and electronic genres can be attributed to Miller and Ragsdale’s musical influences, which give equal importance to post-rock bands such as Explosions in the Sky and Mogwai as well as electronic dance music artists, such as Underworld and Trentemøller. worriedaboutsatan’s sound, in reflection of their musical tastes, is in their own words, an attempt ‘to fuse elements of everything we listen to – glitch, techno, electronica, rock and metal’. worriedaboutsatan also employ the use of samples from a wide variety of sources, such as a speech given by Patricia Hearst and a spoken performance of a Siegfried Sassoon poem, sampled in a new track called ‘Evil Dogs’.
worriedaboutsatan’s music has appeared on several BBC Radio shows, including Steve Lamacq’s show on 6Music and Tom Robinsons’ Introducing and Mary Anne Hobbs’ Experimental Show, both on Radio 1. Since 23rd July 2008, their music has also been featured in episodes of the popular British soap, Coronation Street.
