Music: Hobbledeions / Sugar Sk*_*lls "Secret fugue Machine" split tape
Side 1, Scott Martin's Hobbledions is something of a force of poped-out inexplicable nature. We've all seen the countless bands he's in and ended up zoning in on two arms, two pairs of drum-sticks. Yes we were high, of course! But...
What's great about "The Warning Chirp" in part is how disguised SM's drumming is. Filtered and mixed with percussive samples, the real-time elements erotically merge with the prerecorded hard tracks. It's pretty post-human stuff.
Later we get to some more human-sounding jazz guitar samples. Heady hop. It's just one chord but we'll take it. Followed by some kind of bear-stomp. Yes this tape gets real. Far out camping meets industrial wilderness. Denney-xotica sounds, but we remember they're samples and then there's a whole new Mirror Stage.
No Kings tape. Ugly J-card but it's hand-made vintage-pressed and feels recycled(?) so ya know... Recomended!
