INCAPACITANTS / (IN SPITE OF FLAMING CREATURES)

Vitamin Buckfast

(Starlight Furniture Company - *15) LP $14.00

Incapacitants began as Toshiji Mikawa’s solo project in 1981 when a homemade noisemaking device called The Mikawa was his prime instrument; it evolved to incorporate various concrete sounds, until Fumio Kosakai joined and the duo began favoring ring modulators and heavily processed Theremins. Incapacitants has always been about “creating pure noise without any abstract musical expression whatsoever.” Everything known about the reclusive Abdul Squeerter of (In Spite of Flaming Creatures) has passed through the conduit of Dylan Nyoukis (Blood Stereo and the Chocolate Monk label). Apparently uninterested in networking, touring, trading CDRs, appearing on compilations, granting interviews, replying to letters, engaging in any sort of self-promotion, or taking part in the glamorous razzle-dazzle available to all experimental musicians worldwide, Squeerter prefers the solitude of where ever he calls home in the United Kingdom. The recordings on Vitamin Buckfast are the product of a mail collaboration committed to tape in the mid-’90s and then simply ignored for several years. Dora Doll of Decaer Pinga makes a guest appearance on vocals, but good luck determining exactly where. Cover art by Karen Constance
