OLYMPIC SHIT MAN

Supercharge

(Harbinger Sound) 2xLP $30.00 (Out-of-stock)

“Prime mid-’90s noise muck” is how our comrades at Idwal Fisher describe this short-lived collaboration between Andy Bolus (aka Evil Moisture) and Mark Durgan (aka Putrifier and participator in Nihilist Assault Group). Originally released on cassette in 1995 by Macronympha’s Mother Savage imprint, Harbinger Sound’s vinyl reissue adds live recordings from 1994 and 2006. “Bizarre as it sounds, Durgan’s well oiled noise gadgets do indeed feel as one with Bolus’s layout of v-techs abortions, toy guns, and broken things that go kkkkrrrrrkkkk, but it’s the 2006 show in Antwerp that hits the spot…. Supercharge meanwhile is alive with TV and film samples, angular noise farts, socket abuse, dustbin torture, unidentified scrape, eruptions of speaker distortion, shortwave whine, high pitched skree. The onslaught is incessant but at times gaps do appear, presumably these being when Bolus’s equipment breaks down and Durgan carries on in his own manly fashion…. To add to the all ’round madness ... you also get a decent-sized magazine of Bolus-drawn insanity….” Edition of 250.
