TITMACHINE

I Wanna Be Your Dog b/w Schneller

(Meeuw Muzak - MM035) 7-inch $8.75 (Out-of-stock)

The four members of Titmachine met in prison (each was convicted of crimes she did not commit). Unable to find gainful employment upon their discharge from stoney lonesome, the ex-inmates formed a band, naturally, the ideal vehicle for the unemployable. The lucrative alternative Dutch music scene rewards them handsomely in exchange for the quartet's release of pent-up rage fueled by continuing injustice. Since October 2006, Titmachine's raw and loose sound has remained unhampered by the constraints of talent, and answers questions anyone has yet to ask. Kinda like the Dutch Shaggs meets the female Monks and Flipper with a conscience.

We Build A New City

(Siltbreeze) Used 7-inch $3.00

“Stripped of its NDW gloss, Titmachine’s primitve, urpy grok of Palais Schaumburg’s ‘Wir Bauen Eine Neue Stadt’ is doused in raw Gueuze more than refined Pilsener. In other words, them yeasts be wild, y’all! The flipside — an original little jawdropper entitled ‘1989’ — is remarkably akin to what The Shaggs might sound like tackling the Urinals’ “Ack Ack Ack.” Pressed on heliocentric black vinyl in a humane edition of less than one million.”
