Title: Switch Hitter
Format: 10"
Label: Broken Flag
Country: UK
Price: $13.00
"Black Rose Recordings and Broken Flag are proud to present the new 10�"� single by the legendary group Ramleh. Limited to 500 with black and white artwork this is their first new material since 1998 and it doesnt disappoint. Powerful droning intensity, motorik rhythms and warped guitar riffs dominate these two songs with one containing Ramlehs distinctive distorted vocals weaving in and out of this inventive chemistry. �Switch Hitter� �could almost be described as a full on dissonant rock track, but Ramlehs desire for experimentation and improvisation lifts it way above the general rock mindset. Ramleh have been active since the early 1980s, first as one of the UKs pioneering power electronics groups and then towards the late 80s they, along with Skullflower, laid the foundations for the UKs improvisional noise rock scene. In fact Gary Mundy from Ramleh was also one of the founding members of Skullflower (there was an overlapping membership of both bands, yet Ramleh always managed to retain their own unique identity regardless of musical genre). They returned to the live scene last year with well received shows in London (one with Whitehouse the other with Merzbow), and New York, whilst a new album release and planned re-issues from their back catalogue are due late 2009 proving they have not lost any of their energy, excitement and ability to explore all possibilities." - Black Rose.
