...And The Antique African Neck Parts

(Chocolate Monk - CHOC.297) Cassette $8.00

On this companion tape to ...And The German Pillow Menu (Chocolate Monk 2013), a Bren’t Lewiis Ensemble stalwart trades blows with Blood Stereo’s mean queen. “Tarzan Knows We Kidnapped The Baby” is just the kind of audio glurph slathered with loops and cut-ups you’d expect from the Left Coast loon, while “Tied To A Tree In Bankkop” is another loop-heavy head scratcher with some fine passages of droney drump and disorienting voices. Get far from monochrome, ya freak. C20. Edition of 40.

KAREN CONSTANCE / JOSEPH HAMMER / JOHN WIESE

Live At Colour Out Of Space 2009

(Chocolate Monk - choc.233) CDR $9.00

Split release recorded live in Brighton 2009. Solid Eye’s gloved maestro of live tape manipulation conjures up amazing, smoked-out loop wobble. If you cut the guy, he would bleed Ferric Oxide. Constance and Wiese twist knobs and deliver spectral head scratch of marble-losing proportions. A sweet ear pickle all round.
