4/10 Clinton Staff review, 06 January 2012
On my lengthy Christmas sabbatical, I toiled away in the sorting department of York's Royal Mail office delighting in my daily dose of 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday' and 'Last Christmas' pumping through the tinny warehouse speakers. Either my ears have been softened by the constant onslaught of these yuletide classics or this record is the most horrible noise known to man. The first 'track' 'Chrome Hatchet' is the sound of an adolescent striking an untuned guitar indefinitely whilst by 'Jelly Kiss' he's learnt to play the individual strings but not in any order to produce a recognisable tune, by 'They Don't Understand' he's learnt a singing style of sorts which involves hollering wildly into a feedbacking microphone. I'm hoping that from here on in there will be the historical archiving of a steep learning curve where by the final track he has penned his very on 'God Only Knows'. I somehow doubt it though. This Jandek style avant crumble is the solo work of Panagiotis Spoulos, the Greek mastermind behind Reverse Mouth, Wham Jah, Postblue. It gets two stars, one for the fact that he's bothered to do it and the other for the nicely painted sleeve.
