This sounds like two guys (Brace Paine and john wise) doing live manipulations on some per recorded tape loops for 15 minutes. There are some really nice sound on this record but they all only last for a few seconds, its like some sort of audio clip show with a harsh processed drum tune in the middle. The tape manipulations are generally of a good standard but they do fuck up, with some comedy bits that donít really fit.

As I've already said some of the sounds on this are really nice and itís a good idea in theory to do a live tape manipulation record, but it just feels really lazy not to then make the sounds into loops and actually do something with them because that would make some really nice music.

Nice matt black cd, terrible artwork tho.
