8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 05 November 2013
Serious chinstroking bod, Basinski collaborator and LINE honcho Richard Chartier is back under his more playful (but still pretty serious) Pinkcourtesyphone alter-ego this week, but this time he’s teaming up with a load of buddies - the first half of this album consists of reworks by the likes of Frank Bretschneider, Yves De Mey, Pjusk and Simon Scott, all offering up pitch black slices of vortex-like dark ambience and woozy dubbed out deep space techno. It’s a cosmic void which is lent a good sense of variety thanks to the multitude of contributors but the changeovers never seem jarring.
The weirdest is yet to come, however. Halfway through the album we get to a second section featuring none other than former Cramps/Gun Club guitar hero Kid Congo Powers, who recites Amanda Lear’s ‘Photograph’ over a steadily pulsating backing of droney technoid darkness. This is then given reworks over the final few tracks including the uncomfortable buzzing dronescapes of the Creepy Autograph Mix and the jittery electronics and sleepy piano touches of the “cut by CoH” version. Curious stuff intended for in-depth listening, it’s a surprisingly cohesive collection given the variety of talent involved in its conception.
