I don't no much about Michael Yonkers but by the sounds of it i should. Hailed in the press release as being 'seriously ahead-of-it's-time, pre/post-punk, jittery noise-rock' this Yonkers fella sounds like a pioneering soundsmith to me. 'Bleed out' sees Yonkers collaborating with Plastic crimewave sound (the brainchild of Galactic Zoo Dossier Magazine published by Drag City), a band that indulge heavily in spaced out noise rock and cosmic psychedelic shizzleness. The results of this collaboration are truely immense. Space rock sonic's collide with nightmarish distortion and feed-back to create an unendingly fiendish racket of epic proportions. The first side is a compilation of studio recordings that began in 2004 and sees the group experimenting with buzz saw guitars, jittery electronics and static reverb to great effect. Yonkers vocals are strange and unpredictable in a totally likeable way and the arrangements are oppressively repetitive and unforgiving. Side B captures Yonkers first live performance with Plastic crimewave sound. Titled 'No urge' it's even more intense and terrifying than the studio recorded material. Captured on tape at the first Million Tongues festival at the Empty Bottle in Chicago, also in 04, 'No urge' sounds totally unhinged and wildly confrontational in it's approach. An amazing record worth further investigation.
