Mad Cow BBQ
Entropic Advance - MAD COW B.B.Q.: A group of our totally jaded neighbors (they live up in the Seattle area, we're down in Olympia) get together to turn your ears to total & unadulterated mush... if your brain survives this onslaught, you can survive anything! Players are bios+a+ic, Noise Poet Nobody, inBOIL & Otis Fodder. 66 (& then some) minutes of total madness... I'm not sure what kinda' diet they're on, but if this is what 'Mad Cow' does to you, invite me to th' next roundup. Experimental in the extreme, 'regular' listeners will not be able to 'stomach' this, & will probably turn into vegans after the first cut, 'Mustard'. It's an odd marriage, as the food-related titles actually parody some kinda' 'relaxation' tape experience... but, I picture your body going into spasms & fits during the listen, if you're not acquainted with madness already. This is some of the best 'new' experimental I've heard in the last couple of years... there is some drone stuff, but there are excellent percussives woven around the drone, so that you (really) won't even notice the drone - until it's too late, & you're already infected. This one gets the 'PICK' of this issue for 'best experimental music', as well as a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for listeners who have need of aural strangenesses.
