Looks like Type are truly branching out now. From European electronica through Modern Classical into contemporary drone & sound art, it's been a long journey. Now they're showcasing a record by Norwegian noise meisters Jazkamer. One of the most frustratingly named bands around (they wantonly abuse their moniker, dropping and adding 'Z's & 'M's seemingly at random), I was expecting more of a terrifying aural shitstorm than this. Instead Sentimental Journey' is built from what I'd term as Kosmische-Noir. A wickedly fuzzy synth drone ebbs & flows menacingly for about 10 minutes before the sound of a paranoid wasp trapped in a didgeridoo starts meandering angrily amongst the cosmic waves of sludge. It sounds utterly demented but surprisingly listenable. Turn this baby up loud you will definitely feel whacked out & wired after a few minutes; a right sinister trip! A couple of snippets conclude the side, a brief tune which deploys an utterly evil monotonous two-note riff & much industrial clanking, feedbacking frequencies and the like, then a piece of berserk collapsing noise. I've had to turn it right down because Phil is terrified of the Labour councilor upstairs whinging to the landlord. Now all I can really hear is the sound of an incredibly harsh Death metal record being chainsawed to bits and fed back through an industrial Scando-free jazz sound-spitter. I've been advised to review it "on headphones" So it just deafens me & no-one else. I'm not reviewing anymore of this record because it's actually caused an argument between us in the office so i've taken the noisy cunt off. Limited vinyl with free CD
