Who IS this guy? This is some weird-ass shit & I like it. The opener appears to be some creepily warped recording of a school assembly dictating The Lord's Prayer, just pitched down enough in a Buttholes stylee to thoroughly freak you out. Oh, I didn't mention the scary wall of wibbling, screeing alien distortion that's laid over the top like a blanket of seeping audio psoriasis did I? He uses chilling high-end frequencies in the way old 50s sci-fi films did - to ensure you hide under the bedclothes because you're convinced that UFO has finally landed. On the second track, the dialogue is much more blurred & muddied, cascading into a vortex of slippery, hellish noise that disturbs in a really, really convincing way. The bloody extra terrestrials are still roaming round your neighborhood by the time we get to side two - they've brought their gnashing insect pets along with them to encourage the terrified residents to give up the good fight and get jumping down into that smoking horror-pit they've lasered into the middle of the main road. Mr. Lay has got a warped sense of humour and a really fine ear for the most heinous of blood-curdling sounds. He doesn't overplay it though as this album is a masterclass in how to take dark ambient music into more interesting & progressive realms. I'm too scared to listen to the last track, I've already got massive skidders in my shreddies....
