8/10 Mike Staff review, 22 January 2014
The mighty Holidays Records have already pressed LPs by No-Neck Blues Band's Pat Murano's Decimus and Key Of Shame projects, and now here's an offering from NNCK themselves, recorded around the time they made the sprawling 'Qvaris' double LP. In contrast to the subtle restraint of that mammoth slab of wax, though, 'Furamingo Josei' is laced with a playful abandon and sense of silliness which makes it a much more accessible listen. The first side opens with puttering polyrhythms which phase in and out of one another over some loose Japanese-sounding melodies which melt in and out of the churning sonic soup in an hypnotic and feverish fervour, and then towards the end of the side the focus turns more to freeform vocalisations which form weird chirping rhythmic patterns guaranteed to either hypnotise or annoy depending on your temperament. Over on side B there's a warped raga drone alongside a thumping primal rhythm which slowly morphs into a mutant chunter replete with meandering string-plucks and blown-out vocalisations that awkwardly dominate the mix. Then we're treated to a passage of near-silence which slowly fills with breathy weirdness like everyone's emptying their spit valves directly into a microphone. Somewhat anarchic but after the full-on assault of the first 10 minutes of this side it's dreamlike and soothing, a feverish trek through an alien forest.
