Apparently these guys have put out previous releases on the likes of Night People, Kill Shaman and Skrot Up but I’ve not encountered them before and this tape really doesn’t help explain much except that they’re a duo with the initials CG and MM and they make weird chopped up repetitive murky post-punk techno pulse’n’drift that’s bleak and relentless, with lots of cut’n’paste samples and slowed down tape loops, grainy textures, echo on everything, it’s like wading through a lake of the bitter treacle that’s left in your weed pipe after it’s gone too many months without a good scrub.

The flip opens with a slow, droning, dubbed out number with some clearer vocals but it’s still got the same bonged out tweak vibes, then there’s some slinky celestial dungeon grooves and distant fairground tinkling for some more dread-laden choppy dub-pulse mischief, and then another particularly moody vocal-led bit of sewer murk to close. The indecipherable and mysterious DIY aesthetics at play are reminding me a bit of the weird Cop Car Music tape we got in not too long ago but this has a darker, more ominous undertone to its hypnotic bleakscapes. Murky, spooked out and mysterious stuff.
