Install present a new collection from Brian Grainger with each track being a collaborative effort with fellow Install artists David Tagg, Peter Wright, Shinobu Nemoto, Acreil, Jason Adams and Millipede. Recorded as a way for Grainger to thwart a serious case of writers block, 'One Bleak Try' is a six track CD of compositions exploring all avenues of failure. It's perky stuff. Well... It's not really perking stuff, it's oppressively heavy and slow in fact. Described by the label as Grainger's bleakest release thus far it's apparent from the opening riff of 'Queen Goat' that 'One Bleak Try' is a hideous beast of a record. A collaborative effort with David Tagg sees the duo dwell on a monstrous Melvins-aping riff, repeating the ritual over and over again to devastating effect. From there on it gets darker, bleaker and more unhinged with the composition becoming increasingly abstract as the record progresses. 'Black Rust Caress' with Peter Wright features wild blasts of white noise accompanied by abusive electronic tones that play on the eardrum for a good twenty minutes. Further experiments include a tape machine vs. spring reverb battle with Acreil and a number of fierce guitar stand-offs. It's an impressive display of brutality.
