Ah, it's another of these extravagantly packaged little tapes from Winebox Press, each coming in its own hand-crafted wooden holder thingy. There's clearly a lot of time and effort goes into these. Anyway, put it on your “tape player” and you'll discover that the first side consists of a long, drawn-out chuntering freeform piece with the duo being accompanied by the clattering percussions of Ross Parfitt. It sounds like somebody rummaging through a big trunk full of musical instruments for the first few minutes before settling into a bubbly two-chord harmonium drone, pedal note string-bending on the guitar and more understated skittering about on the drums than in the busy opening passage. The grinding, creaking accompaniment of the dying office tape player adds another dimension of weirdness to the sound that you won't get at home but even so, it's pretty out there. I bet you're wondering what the other side sounds like, too, so I'll tell ya. It sounds totally different. This time round Jons Collin and Marshall are going it alone in what the press release describes as “two classically swelling electrified duo performance excerpts”. That means drones, baby. I think they're in the key of A but with no reference points to check it's hard to say for sure. Much less heavy going than the first side.
