Doomy drone supergroup Khanate have split up now, making Clean Hands Go Foul their tender goodbye. Well, maybe not tender exactly. I reckon the first side of this beautifully presented LP is completely inspired, up there with the best of that incestuous Southern Lord-y scene. Some of the sounds Stephen O'Malley's wringing from his guitar in these improv torture chamber soundtracks are totally ace.. You can sometimes accuse him of coasting through on reputation alone but not in this case - blinding squalls and bowel-ruining rumbles blow forth from thy speakers with satisying regularity. The tortured vocals are always going to be a talking point, at times Alan Dubin sounds like he's throwing up so hard he'll be inside out by the end of the record; as I've just said to Phil, vocals like this work on several levels and one of them is that they're pretty fucking funny. So the first side is great, the second side is a tossed-off twenty minute noodle that just sounds like someone left the tape running while they were tidying up the studio. I've got a fair bit of patience for these things but it's completely fucking rubbish, no tension is built, no real atmosphere created and nothing of worth communicated. Still, one out of two isn't that bad..
