- I Vizi Morbosi Di Una Giovane Infermiera by Atrax Morgue
Another Italian, another sinister album, this time dedicated (and largely sampled from) cult Spanish underground director’s Eloy de la Iglesia’s no doubt controversial "I Vizi Morbosi di una Giovane Infermiera". Iglesia is well worth reading up about if you’re a cinemaphile, a controversial boundary-pushing thorn-in-the-side for sensors and politicians alike! Never heard of him before but he was apparently a gay activist and a hardline socialist, all this whilst the dreaded Franco was still in power so he is most worthy of your attention.
This record is dedicated to the aforementioned celluloid obscurity and the first track on side two liberally samples huge swathes of the audio track from the film and tags on a fearsome ascending/descending electronic tone that adds a really chilling dimension to proceedings, like the sound of gales blowing outside a log cabin perched on a dark mountainside, two teenagers trapped inside and there’s a proper psycho nutter outside in the woods with a machete making his way towards their abode.
The subsequent “tune” features a slightly grungy electronic pulse that is as threatening as it is therapeutic. Do you dig my disregard of the order of sides? Well, the same technique applies to side one - heavily sampled dialogue from the film draped over a weird cyber-growl with some excellent creepy cosmic noises ebbing and flowing. The deep, rich tone on the other piece here cathes you in the throat and wouldn’t sound out of place on an Eleh or Eliane Radigue movement. Good stuff but I think it may have upset our Business Lady
