Death & Beauty Foundation
(Somnimage - som018) CD $15.00 (Out-of-stock)
Val Denham and Andrew M. McKenzie's (Hafler Trio) 1982 avant garde masterpiece for the bewildered; that's right, the legendary Darlington tapes available after 26 years. “One long collage,” observes Vital Weekly, “The main instrument at work here is the voice … best described … as sound poetry, with a melodic touch…. [G]uitars, the good old Casio VL-tone 1 and several tape editing techniques (speeding up of sound, slowing down) [are] played rather naively and free.” Remastered, frightening and beautiful. The strangest album ever recorded.
