Antrhoprophh- SRR 2.5: Special Love Songs for Hard Working People in Alarm Clock Britian (Creepy Crawl Recordings CC05)
I have never heard any albums by this band but I recall it was a crazy show at Roadburn. I have to say these are totally far out instrumental love song guitar freak outs. The opening track, Jan Birth Jam, has some of the most nasty guitar playing I have heard in a long time. A very tortured, noisy, in your face sound, while the band just pounds a way in the distance. It was recorded live in the rehearsal space. Side B features 3 tracks, the first of which is called No one likes You. This one has vocals over the intense drumming and layers of guitar freakout. Pig Squealer is another one live from the rehearsal room and another freak rocker with some far out vocals and just nastness to it. Song for a King is totally different with a spoken word over a simple drum and some really bizzare synths and other strange sounds. The LP ends with Cardinal Drag, which is pretty trippy stuff with some acoustic guitar, druggy vocals and fuzz guitar and other bizzare sounds to fuck up your mind.. Do not get too stoned when listening to this record, it could be dangerous to your health!
