""The Xperiments From Within The Tentacular album (a D.I.Y act on 4 Track Tape Recorder captured between 2006-2007) features the most dangerous Yaya touch, guitar Feedback development at its wildest, obscure unintelligible spoken words within vintage & weird cascophonic sounds quality, and the cult of impossible 4 track transfiguration." - Les Disques Blasphematoires Du Palatin.

Artist: GR
Title: A Reverse Age
Format: LP
Label: Mexican Summer
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Truth comes today from Frances Gregory Raimo, once again taking up the mantle of the performance moniker GR. Raimo has been shredding with ingenious ferocity for a number of years now, both alone and as guitarist/vocalist for Gunslingers, a power trio fortified by his relentless barrage of guitar noise and rhythmic imperative. A Reverse Age is Raimos third and most intense solo album, following a collaborative EP with Michael Yonkers. Those of you in the know will hear Yonkers late 60s period influence, whether it be myth or reality (only the artist is telling), as you might also find the strange, hissing atmosphere of Alien Soundtracks-era Chrome or the psychic limbering-up of The Magic Band evident in GRs music. Real, productive damage comes from within, however, and thats where A Reverse Age performs its miracles. It figures that you would need to go back 30 to 40 years in the history of underground or fringe music to find any sort of precedent to its eight songs. Its restless nature highlights Raimos frantic compositional structures and explosive playing across guitar, bass and drums alike, the product of one guy with real vision and the skills to pull off a work of virtuosic hostility such as this one. Riffs sizzle and burn up, pushed through effects that somehow cheapen lesser works yet bolster this one. Things you know -- eldritch forest folk, roadhouse blues, aggressive jazz-style drumming -- are distended near to the point where they become part of GRs own musical syllabus, grounded by GRs street-corner vocal hustle, sounding like Armand Schaubroeck rapping into a CB radio in a stolen car, out joyriding and knocking off side view mirrors." -Mexican Summer.
