The Loren Connors re-issue frenzy continues with this vinyl pressing of his 1997 album. As the title perhaps suggests, this is a heavier album with nods towards the guitar scree and feedback of Bardo Pond and Sonic Youth. All tracks are untitled and the sole instrument is Connors ever mutating guitar.

- Hell! Hell! Hell! Hell! Hell! by Loren Connors
It’s Loren Connors, it’s a remastered version on 180g vinyl -- limited to 500 copies -- only previously available on CD; it’s the 20th anniversary of one of Loren’s noisier solo experiments: Hell! Hell! Hell! Hell! Hell!
The record continued his long lineage of avant-garde experimentations on his chosen instrument, beginning some 20 years previously. Connors is in raucous and slightly more aggressive form than usual for ‘Hell!’ x5; summoning up the flames from below, such is the imagery conjured up by his working of the wah wah, working the fuzz pedals and tremolo-ing into psych overdrive. That said, there are a couple of gorgeously soft vignettes here, in ‘Guitar #7’, opening side B of the record, and continuing into the contemplative blues of Guitar #8.
Beautiful stuff for all Loren’s fans to enjoy, plus a lot for people who appreciate a bit of Sonic Youth-style guitar noise.
