Here's an LP called 'Grain Loops'. When Phil gave it to me he said "I think it's literally just loops of somebody pouring grain" but on closer inspection that doesn't seem to be the case. This is in fact "30 works for sandpaper and 4 snare drums". Anybody who wants a record with tunes on should turn away now, for no good will come of this.
The plus side is that each of these loops is only about a minute long. The downside is that there are 30 of them. I presume from the description and the sounds I'm hearing that he's just put sandpaper on a record turntable and played along with drums? There are some truly disgusting sounds here, it's amazing how long a minute can feel sometimes. Sometimes the sandpaper lets up and the pounding drums take the fore. Here again a minute feels like an eternity as the relentless repetition drills into the very core of your skull. It's punishing stuff and you'll love it or hate it I guess, but you can't say I didn't warn you.
