I'd be tempted to file this under 'comedy' rather than the noise, industrial, extreme genres it currently sits in. Track 1 is the sound of someone strangling daffy duck but nothing will prepare you for the looped mayhem of what comes next, a high end shrill screech is looped indefinitely until your brain pops out of its socket. It sounds like fairground music at 215rpm. After such a brain melt the only way to go is to calmness and in 'Labyrinths and Jokes' we get a lovely soothing loop. It doesn't last, on the first flip of the record 'Body Chaos' resembles a dog being trapped in a cement mixer. It really is the most horrible sound and it lasts for the entire side. Side three is eerie synth evocations, side four mostly unlistenable scree culminating in some eerie buzz and ghostly voice. Dilloway is a sound sorcerer extraordinaire, not for the faint hearted. I'd like a little more 'downtime', ear cleansing ambient pieces amongst the chaos. This is a double album of immense power and experimentation, beautifully packaged in a hardboard screen printed sleeve.
