Interested to know people’s opinions on this stuff…some stunning stuff on ‘em…BUT I can’t help detecting a “fuken gnarly dude” vibe.
Fair enough it’s Rat Club era Throbbing Gristle worship but it seems to have evolved into an area that chimes with much contemporary improv….anyone heard this stuff?
Tell me what to think!
theres a couple of hours of the stuff here http://www.thewire.co.uk/articles/1217/

There's nothing to understand. I just appreciate the clash of good music, badly recorded and packaged.

I like falling to sleep to them, actually -- like listening to Graveyards playing three houses away.

the covers have a outsider art/highschool stoner charm http://www.slamxhype.com/blogs/d/theotherclub/2008/01/24/fag-tapes
