7/10 Ant Staff review, 16 February 2017
‘Music Without Discipline’ is the third full length from Richard Smith, who’s half of Bronze Teeth (Diagonal, Khemia, BAKK) and Green Gums alongside ex-Factory Floor chap Dominic Butler.
For this double LP on Not Waving fellow Alessio Natalizia’s Ecstatic label, he turns out eleven off kilter hardware jams that range from wonky club/floor tools to stranger beatless numbers. Dancefloor highlights include the clonking and squirming acid of ‘Dance You Awful Cu*t’, the gurgling techno of ‘Birds’ the trippy, bleeping ‘Texan Flower Girl’ and the grotty slammer ‘Living Without Gain’. ‘GO 2’ is like a deranged Larry Heard jam, while closer ‘Ballet’ is a dissonant yet pretty outro. Everything seems to be captured in it’s raw form and not over polished, which adds to the records rough charm.
