TEMPLE OF BON MATIN

Thunder Feedback Confusion

(Siltbreeze) Used LP $15.00

The Philadelphia-based noise rock collective sounds like early Hawkwind jamming with Glenn Branca’s guitar orchestra, to the accompaniment of an extremely busy construction site. Their near-atonal freakouts are as challenging and uncompromising as rock music gets, with plenty of dynamics and compositional ideas. The heart of Temple of Bon Matin is the duo of drummer Ed Wilcox and keyboardist John Mulvaney, with other members added and subtracted according to whim. This 1995 album is probably the group’s most overtly rock-oriented work, with some of the songs even having recognizable melodies. Hand-made jacket with spray-paint, stencil, stickers
