Price: $25.00
"NEW in the el nuevo dunedin series of split 10" lathe records... the best $100 Band gig I saw was at an art college barbeque, where they performed an utterly intense half-hour drone with violin and cello to the fore, followed by almost an hour of Alastair Galbraith and former Snares singer Maxine Funkes songs in a very pop style. The band at it was possibly doesnt exist now, due to drummer Mike Dooley (ex of the Enemy/Toy Love and the Snares)s preference for the songs, but this disc remains to show what they were like at their best. Alastairs been working on long-form drones for a while now, ala his Cd Radiant, and the $100 Band gave them a rough, energetic going-over, falling into vast holes of wordless, timeless beauty. the artist known as Spit, Ryan Cockburn, doesnt take a whizz-bang approach to turntablism, and the pieces on this record are definately at the quieter end of his scale. Live, however, he develops immense journeys that roil and tear time, with an unpredictable edge that he creates via an unusual method - he cuts his records in half and glues them back together, in odd combinations; and since he now has hundreds of them he has little to no idea how theyll sound or react to the welded needles on his antique record players. The result is always something odd and his side of this record are like complete beginnings of the longer pieces which hopefully will see wider release than his cdr series."
