(Anarchymoon - ANOK22) LP $10.50
Two live sets from 2007 by Australia’s maverick amplified-glass player recorded in Europe. The contact-mic’d glass -- smeared with gel, rubbed with Yeldham’s nightmarish face, blown against, and otherwise manipulated -- shrieks like a trumpet with live a pig up its ass, alternating with field recordings of Donald Duck suffering through a heavy bout of dysentery, treated with synths pedal. This is a warehouse find of the platters from the original pressing, with new silkscreened fold-overs, individually smeared with blood. Seriously, these are not vegan. Tedium House orders include a complimentary (slightly damaged, though not bloody) copy of Bananafish #12, featuring an interview with Lucas Abela.
(Dual Plover) LP picture disc $13.50 (Out-of-stock)
Twenty-six minutes of what's been described as "a trumpet player trapped in a two dimensional universe." Yeldham ecstatically purses his lips against sheets of amplified glass and throat sings, raspberries, and performs any kind of vocalization he can think of in between. Strangely controlled, oddly musical, simple, original, and bloody. Four tracks: "180211" (recorded live at Serial Space, Sydney); "Buzzies" and "Black Knight Cleans Bright" (both recorded January 2012); and "March of the Bodypumpers" (recorded 2009, previously available as mp3 download via Wire magazine).
