DEAD LABOUR PROCESS "SENTIMENT" CDR (Chocolate Monk) £4
Here's what Nyoukis has to say about it: "Edinburghs one man tape blub merchant presents recordings made in his home town and that of Offenbach, Germany. Warbling and clank are captured in loops. At one point there is some vague sense of a carnival tent in which the studying of stumps takes place and where bones tell tales. Croon dementia is set upon us, molecules warbled sideways, nausea. On the way out we get gnawing and gurgling camouflaged by mud, necks craned in formation. A goat haired bow and proclamations."
DEAD LABOUR PROCESS "RATS IN THE GRAVY OF KNOWLEDGE" CDR (PIFHO) £4
Long-form release of heavily milked recordings from across Europe in 2011, including some group drunk singalong jerk offs, 2 cover versions, various bumbling foibles and some personal 'issues' being worked out in public therapy. I will humbly give this my highest recommendation...
DEAD LABOUR PROCESS/KOMMISSAR HJULER UND FRAU "HAMBURG TAPES" (TOTAL VERMIN) £3
Recorded live in Hamburg, 2011. Two side long pieces for tapes, voice, biscuit tin, guitar and keyboard. Originally released on a DVD in an edition of about 2 copies or something, but to be honest there was nothing to see on it since we played in the dark! Much better in straight up audio and you can conjure up your own visuals. Here's what Arnot is saying: "Live hook-ups between Edinburgh's DLP, also to be found in noise rock shitkickers Muscletusk and certifiable droolers Brittle Hammer Trio, and Germany's Mr and Mrs Dada. They weave together an unremittingly strange noise, from sources familiar and unknown, simultaneously alien and as human as snot. As unhinged, confusing and ultimately beautiful as you could hope for.
BRITTLE HAMMER TRIO "OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS" CDR (Poot) £4
Debut release by the trio of Fritz Welch, Ali Robertson and Euan Currie. As much scrape, warble and tickle as you can shake a stinky duckcall at. Cover art by Fritz Welch.
BRITTLE HAMMER TRIO "COMMUNICATION METHODS" CDR (No label) £4
Special release for sale at Colour Out Of Space fest in Nov 2011. Recorded in my kitchen then fannied about by Fritz. This is in some ways a very broad concept album which has been continued in our recent live work, although this may be pushing it a bit...
VARIOUS ARTISTS "SONGS ABOUT DYING" CDR (Pjorn 72) £4
A various artists grouping of some disrepute...inc. Blood Stereo, UFO Antler Band, Nackt Insecten, Scrim, Jazzfinger, Culver, Wounded Knee, Fordell Research Unit and of course my good self. I guess most of these "songs" to touch on mortality, although perhaps Scrim's "Mangers and Bash" might require some explaining. Cover art by Karen Constance.
