THE HISTORY OF UNHEARD MUSIC

Drop It

(RRRecords) Used LP $16.00

Mutant Sounds describes this “absolutely stunning, commanding” album from 1987 as “mindbending weirdity” by a “New York crew that operated at a strange juncture between post-Residents wacky song-form deformation and the downtown cabaret-on-acid improv stylizations of Shelly Hirsch / David Weinstein collaborations (with Hirsch actually appearing on three cuts here)…. [C]reative misapplications of slicked-up DX-7 tonalities and Fairlight CMI primitive sampladelic tech … lends the proceedings a vaguely Art Of Noise-y undertow which sounds absolutely alien in the context of such wayward compositional impulses.”
