More delicious music by Neil Campbell & his Astral Social Club project. After Brett's hungry devouring of his new CD on vhf, here's a full bloody 12" wax platter to feast on! With Stewart Keith & ex-Hood collaborator John Clyde-Evans on board, 'Plug Music Ramoon' opens with a spaced out wibbly number with a backwards masked element going on for full confusion of the senses. I can hear lots of cool little sonic twinges in there I wanna indulge myself on the headphones with! The other track on this side is proper full-on Kraut/Space-boogie minimalism that kind of recalls both The Fall & Hawkwind in equal measures (minus the chord changes!) plus that legendary 'Simple Headphone Mind' collaboration between Stereolab & Nurse With Wound. See also later Boredoms stuff. The beat is a relentless glam stomp that I could imagine Julian Cope hollering over. Love the wall of ....well...."Astral" sound they create. Flip over for some organic industrial music which reminds me of those mad cartoons where a bizarre character wheels a frankenstein monster vehicle out of the garage, all whirring & chuffing and creaking. Add to that honking, spluttering, polyrhythmic grind a sub-bass pulse, some distant klaxons & a possessed chant or two and you've a sonic zoo on your hands. Utterly fantastic stuff, junkshop tribalism of the very finest sort! The last tune i'm not reviewing as I want to surprise myself with it when I take it home!
