- Unnecessary Woe by Sly & The Family Drone

I've got two vinyl records this week to stab plastic keys tunelessly, arhythmically and angrily along to. This is the first one. Its "punny name time" with these portentous percussive tykes from Basingstoke. "Probably the worst live band in the area" say the Basingstoke Gazette. I'm relieved I'm not a journo for those douches; they obviously have no idea of the true power of well-executed experimental music.
I won't rant on too much about this and cause you all unnecessary woe. It's a slow-building deep, dark and dingy tribalistic affair which, whilst being drum-heavy, is also monolithically atmospheric with low, foreboding moans and grinding electronic noises, shards of feedback and the galloping hooves of Satan being casually rinsed into the mix. Close your eyes and you are standing naked, shivering in a pentagram surrounded by blood-soaked virgins in goat head masks battering their drums, immaculately arranged in a ring around your sorry doomed ass.....
Sounds kinda like that. Shit & Shine, Black Dice and Crash Worship are mentioned in their brief biog. Definitely early Shit & Shine in the pummelling noise-rock meets deranged sonic miasma stakes...a little A Middle Sex, early Gnod, also last week's stars Nope at their most fierce I hear towards the climax. This is a hard, brutal psych-noise rock album in a beautiful package that includes an eerie printed PVC slip sleeve, adorned with a lovely nightmare skeletal character.
