The fourth LP in Rocket Recordings’ Collisions series of split releases finds Italy’s occult psych monsters Mamuthones going head to head with demented UK sprawlers Evil Blizzard. The former incorporate fresh elements of VU-style drone rock and Byrne/Eno rhythmic clatter on four new tracks while the latter offer up the thunderous circular intensity of "Sacrifice", calling on kindred spirits Teeth Of The Sea for some suitably unhinged remix action.

According to chief Mamuthone Mr Alessio Gastaldello, new album Fear On The Corner’s title bears the roots of its sound: Talking Heads’ Fear Of Music and Miles Davis’ On The Corner. Two very good jumping-off points eh? Indeed, the grooves are rich and rigorous on this one, underpinning the disco / krautrock fun-pulse that have made Mamuthones so well-regarded. Out from Rocket.
Mamuthones kick off their cover version of The Rolling Stones’ classic ‘Sympathy For The Devil’ with a distinctly LCD Soundsystem-esque drum machine / synth combo. It’s certainly a new direction for the hardy old tune, but in fact it works rather well, especially when it settles into a choir of ‘woo-woos’ over komische drift. Plus remixes from Howling Owl and Giant Swan.
