This is a short but sweet tape of noise superman Kevin Drumm rocking it with a guitar and synthesiser set-up, wrenching juicy textures and potent tones out of the gear. Gtr / Synth 2000 was released by Bocian Records last year, but it sold out so soon that they’ve done up a limited re-press of 90 copies. C30 cassette.

8/10 Ant Staff review, 26 April 2017

This tape from Chicago noise maker extraordinaire originally appeared and vanished swiftly back in September 2016. Thankfully Bocian have done a second run in an edition of 90 copies - so now’s your chance to grab a copy without having to feed the vultures over on Discogs. While you’re at it, we still have a coupla copies of his ‘Elapsed Time’ 6CD box set on Sonoris sat on the shelf at the time of writing. If you’re a Drumm fan - that one’s a no brainer and is just waiting to nestle up next to your ‘Necro Acoustic’ box for a smooch.

The first side gets going on a heavy downer vibe with some fluttering static and grumbling, menacing low end which is threatening to take out my speakers. It’s like being sucked through a black hole in slow motion. Things develop into some serious frequency abuse with sizzling noise - out of the black hole and into a furnace. Some of the later high frequencies that emerge have potential to cause tinnitus/ irreversible damage to your hearing so don’t even consider playing this on headphones as the churning and screeching peaks into a blistering racket in full on ‘Sheer Hellish Miasma’ mode.

The second side builds from sparse drones, layering equilibrium disrupting, woozy low-end and gnarly oscillations. They become pretty harsh, before things erupt into dense, gushing noise that’s like being swept away by a fast moving flood of liquid mercury, leaving your atoms dissolving in a silver pool.
