This is a site where I post reviews of CDs, DVDs, LPs, and concerts. I have been writing music reviews on and off since 1984. I ran a heavy metal fanzine from 1984-1988 called Metal Madness and have been a staff writer for Aural Innovations for many years. I have also contributed to Chrohinga Well (RIP), Bad Acid (RIP), Lowcut (RIP), Roadburn and a number of other zines as well. I recently moved to Portugal so please request the new address and do not send any music to Denmark anymore. Tak..

Lime Eyelid- Week of Wonders (Private Press)
Lime Eyelid is an experimental project from Josh Schultz (Travelling
Circle drummer) using old school 4 track tape technology and strange old synths
like the Realistic Moog Concert Mate MG-1, a light theremin, tape delays, Vox
repeat Percussion, etc… This LP is pressed in only 110 copies and features 3
tracks per side. 1 starts things off with some drums, eerie keyboards. This track reminds me a bit of tracks by Aron
(Black Beacon). I Saw Waves is a track that goes in waves and features some
singing. Reminds me of a very slow and stoned Velvet Underground. 3, is next
and the last on side A. IT features a sort of bass line (Synth?), some drum
sounds and a slow build with the main line played by the synth. The music again
has this dark and mysterious vibe like you are going down a long dark tunnel. The
same theme is repeated over and over with some slight variations and a few
extra sounds and cymbals thrown in along the way. Side B starts off with 4. A
high pitched sound from the Theremin over a drone synth that slowly wavers.
Later, some horn or voice like sounds enter in and counter the synth line.Interesting experiment in sound with some
tape effects at the end. 5 features a more thin sounding drum and guitar. Some
strange synth and other sounds compliment the main theme hammered out. Dark
Psych. 6 is the final track on this interesting musical journey. It starts with
a happy Casio like keyboard sound with a bit of drums thrown in from time to
time. Something you might hear at a carnival, very old one. Always cool to hear an album like this where someone makes the music they hear inside their head with no boundaries and lets us hear it! Contact Josh for a copy...
