"There is a certain genius in curating and archiving if its done in the right way. Bostons Phil Milstein is a master of this art. His projects recontextualizing found material are as inventive and original as anything youll run across. Another maestro of the form is Maines Skot Spear (aka id m theft able). We already vinylized one of the projects he uncovered, The Weeny Man LP (FTR 037LP, 2013). And now its time for another. Originally released by Skot in 2002 as a CDR on his own Maang-Disc label, EEEE EEEEE documents a cassette he found in the basement of a friends house late in the last century. The music is a solo set recorded by Skots friends younger brother, back when he was in sixth or seventh grade. And its kind of a masterpiece, along the lines of Human Skab, Teddy Fire and the like (although, truthfully, we think its the best of this particular pre-pubescent breed). What the hell EEEE thought he was doing is anyones guess, but the results are weird, self-consciously smutty, and possessed of a de facto avant garde heft that is difficult to resist. Lyrical topics are downbeat (as befits the artists age group) and the key/rhythm-box based arrangements really sneak up on you. Its guaranteed to make you feel like you (yourself) are rolling around on filthy shag carpeting in a damp rural basement, dreaming that you were anywhere else, and moaning in as musical a way as your damage will allow. A readymade classic that would have been lost were it not for Mr. Spear. Let us salute him and all the other geniuses of trash recycling. They are the true vanguard." --Byron Coley, 2017. Edition of 300.
