We’ve got a more mega-limited LPs in from the good noise historians at Urashima and this is one of two made by Maurizio Bianchi in 1979 under his Sacher-Pelz alias. To my palpable relief on this snowy and freezing morning, this isn’t one of his more confrontational pieces (my introduction to his work was the unpalatable and opinion-polarising screech lament ‘Symphony For a Genocide’) but is in fact a piece of musique concrete-inspired dark ambience. Sonically it’s a lot of rumbling and bubbling and murky decay, sometimes with slowed down vocals poking through or some kind of throbbing air conditioner hum, while on the other side some sparse synth loops and waves of analogue crunch’n’flutter lend almost an early techno air to proceedings.
It’s creeped out and mechanical, like Decimus taking a knife to the Eraserhead soundtrack, lots of subtly looped creaks and groans and synth twitches in an experimental analogue soup like a hazy Nurse With Wound nightmare. It’s bleak and paranoid but strangely soothing and human stuff, much more accessible than I had feared. If you’re into vintage experimental noise this and its companion LP are must-haves - get one while you can!
