Album Review
Adam Pearson
Reviewed 2011-02-09
Free noise, rumbling lawnmowers, digital whipping, electronic flourishes, self-destructive assaults of distortion, and amplifiers turned up to 11. Big time atonal, dissonant experimental music. Gangwizard is a spastic noise supergroup (once Kevin Shields was involved). Power electronics, free jazz, and improv are also points of reference. Fans of Throbbing Gristle and The Dead C take note. Do not miss it. No FCCs detected.


Side A:
1. Chaotic bashout, weirdo yelpy vocals, jazz cymbal keeping time or lack thereof. Slows down a bit and huge low end numbs your headache, while the aspergers spoken word takes center stage, moany, tribal. Huge freakout at end.
2. Settles into a rhythmic back-and-forth between shouty chants and distorted guitar swipes while buzzing bass and off-key electrosynths provide some input behind the unintelligibile vocals. Moody, droney outro.

Side B:
*1. Best midnight to 6 track since Glass Box. Tape manipulation, squirking, vinyl abuse, the sound effects record developing into a maelstrom of electro-mixer violence with persistent bass drum plod. Intense.
