Magnificent looking 12" box set featuring Bardo Pond, Comets on Fire, Eternal Tapestry, D Charles Speer and The Helix, Steve Gunn, Sonic Youth, Sun City Girls, Wooden Wand containing 4 slabs of vinyl, prints, an essay and even some bubblewrap. I love the drawing of a telephone on the cover. This has been released to celebrate 10 years of Three Lobed Recordings and it's quite the statement. All music is new and/or unreleased and this is limited to just 700! Flipping through the music in random order Steve Gunn does a droney mantra-ish country folk piece reminiscent of John Fahey to impressively open the proceedings. There can't be too much more left in the Sun City Girls vaults and here they sound worryingly like Santana albeit a Santana that goes nuts half way through attempting a jazz freeform exploration in front of a festival crowd. Eternal Tapestry sound like a sludgy strung out Doors left to fester in a grimy old studio whilst Jim Morrison shoots up in the bath, a heavily medicated Clarence Clemons dropping in through the dope haze to add some wayward sax. On the flip fellow fried travellers Bardo Pond create a ramshackle, haphazard improvisation of stellar drums, wibbling electronics and fluttery flute. Comets on Fire emerge with low end scree that eventually turns into a kind of utter chaos that with either appall or entrance you. They sound completely mental. On the complete opposite end of the spectrum and as a light relief from all the racket, D Charles Speer sound uncannily like The Flying Burrito Brothers on the bar room hoedown 'Big Big City' and Gram Parsons himself on the tearjerkin' 'Shooting Star'. Wooden Wand sharing the same side of vinyl does his thing, which is fair to middling dark songwriter stuff; having seen him live he's a nice chap but will his compositions ever really take full flight? Mouthus sound like they've recorded a load of low end fret buzz in cave-like conditions while on the other side veteran big hitters Sonic Youth show their class with two compositions which span the last decade. 'In and Out', recorded in 2000, is an impressive piece of galloping atmospheric twilight rock. Sounding like a 'Daydream Nation' outtake stretched to breaking point it's magnificently eerie and reminiscent of some of the Can-like experiments of their early work. The second track 'Out and In' recorded in 2011 is effortlessly brilliant experimental rock that could only be Sonic Youth yet never feels like resting on laurels. This magnificently pisses over everything else on the comp and that's saying something as there is plenty elsewhere for fans of the cream of US underground rock to cherish.
