Ashtray Navigations / Universal Indians

(Betley Welcomes Careful Drivers) Used split CDR $12.00

“In the welter of home recording releases, it has to be said there is nobody quite like Phil Todd and his splendid Ashtray Navigations,” promises Sound Projector. “No other music sounds as chronically symptomatic of a week-long influenza fever, fraught with hallucinogenic visions of discomfort.... [S]tarting off with a whimpering puppy of a toy organ loop [the CD follows] the corridors of sound-leakage, ambient room recordings and noisy clutter with a suite of metal guitar solos…. Universal Indians … play very loud guitar and drums…, turgid and slow…, while the vocals are wrenched from the chest cavity of the singer as though he’s being given the Heimlich maneuver by a masked wrestler.”
