Kakutopia was established in 1998 by musicians and artists associated with the total-improv pop/rock outfit Radioactive Sparrow. Initially founded for the convenience of a local distribution organ in Cardiff who preferred to issue material as coming from ‘an umbrella organization’, Kakutopia’s inception coincided with the early spread of worldwide web – kakutopia.com was launched on 31st December 1998.
Since then Kakutopia has been run by Gwilly Edmondez as a sometime record label, a loose collective of like-minded musicians, and an online umbrella for the dissemination of experimental and improvised music. Apart from owning (and now issuing in installments) the entire Radioactive Sparrow back catalogue, Kakutopia has historically been home to legendary figures like Tony Gage, the Homogenetic Arsonist, Gwilly Edmondez/Virginia Pipe/Copydex/Gustav Thomas, Wildlife Producer, SAAB, Bruco Lava and Falco Subbuteo.
This blog will continue to post weekly albums every week until further notice. The back catalogue of Radioactive Sparrow will be posted in chronological order.
