BIRTH REFUSAL / CASSIS CORNUTA

Birth Refusal / Cassis Cornuta

(Ultra Eczema) LP $22.50

(Ultra Eczema) Used LP $10.00

Dream-team hook-up between legendary Belgian avant/industrial/savant-goof Cassis Cornuta (one of the most singular synthists/conceptualists to come out of the post Nurse bag) and John Olson and Mike Connelly of Wolf Eyes. Housed in a massively ill fold-out six-panel cover with art by Dennis Tyfus and pressed on a one-sided LP with an etching on the B-side, the sonics match slowly rending circuit boards, cold beams of Euro glare and what appears to be the first drawled chord of “Iron Man,” and fluttering electronics that hover in the air with all the malevolent anti-gravity of leather wings.
Corners of the poster jacket of the used copy are a little bent, but the vinyl is pristine.

CASSIS CORNUTA

Mag Ik Eens Even In Uw Broek Pissen

(Ultra Eczema - UE69) LP $25.00

Since 1974 Daniel De Wereldvermaarde Botanicus has been combining musique concrète, analog synthesizer carpets, weirdo acid, noise, field recordings, tape music, and free jazz in a puddle of madness spiced with odd staring, dozens of plants (cacti, to be more specific), an encyclopedic knowledge of sound art, and an insane collection of hats. Mag Ik Eens Even In Uw Broek Pissen is playable in at least four different ways, depending on how many extra holes Mr. De Wereldvermaarde Botanicus has drilled into each by hand (some copies have three extra holes, some around twenty; none have just one). This beautiful collection of loner synth sounds makes hangovers or LSD trips worth going for. Strange beat-oriented 303 and 808 acid snoop, and a combination of piss, wind and wood that bring back the good ol’ plunderblur of The New Blockaders. Cover design is a collage of pictures from the De Wereldvermaarde Botanicus archive, with an insert and an extra photo. 300 copies.
