Louisville's finest maverick noise punk troupe Tropical Trash have a filthy tape of 'Unoriginals' out this week, mutating a couple of repetitive early minimal NY classics into swampy knuckle-dragging chug-a-thons.   On side A they tackle Terry Riley's 'In C', which starts as a slowly morphing hypno-riff dirge before stopping dead to be reborn as a clanging, screeching cacophony. Side B is even more primitive, a neanderthal thump'n'shred through Rhys Chatham's ode to E minor, 'Guitar Trio', building from a one-note twang to an uninhibited clatter'n'scrape clamour full of gnarly feedback and creeping overtones.   It's a thoroughly enjoyable recording, mixing a reverence for the liberating spirit of the original pieces with a chaotic, freewheeling vigour and a love of dirty, broken noise that's well suited to the cassette format. Both tracks go on for ages, too, as you'd expect. When are these guys going to do an LP though?
