Noise merchant Russell Haswell presents this new mini LP which sits right between a 12" and an LP. Here he collaborates with Sue Tomkins (Life Without Buildings). Her distinctive voice is sure to give a unique edge to music Haswell describes as being influenced by the music he heard during his formative years.

Russell Haswell is back on Diagonal with this wee mini-album that gets going with the ominous sizzler ‘The Surface is Unrevealing’ that comes across like H&M’s (that’s Jeff Mills and Robert Hood, not the kids clothing store) ‘Mutant Theory’ from their Tranquilizer EP, deconstructed and tranquilized into a state of near death as it melts into a fizzing pool of luminous green goop that gets sucked into a giant plughole.
‘First In Man (Williams Mix)’ is Haswell at his most “techno”. A skeletal kick drum provides the pulse, around which all sorts of mutant squelches and zaps ricochet and splodge. ‘Worsening Daily’ is the one for me on this record - a proper mangled, generative rhythmic noise assault that’s like shoving a 909 wrapped in tinfoil into your ears in some sort of depraved act of electroshock therapy/self-mutilation. Pure, fiendish mayhem that one. ‘Special Long Version’ features Sue Tompkins on vocals and sounds like a deranged yet cathartic tribute to OG Chicago acid house as constructed by the last remaining brain cell of an acid casualty (and I mean that as a compliment). ‘Let Suffering Become You’ is a banger somewhere between the kooky techno Subhead used to knock out back in the day and Unit Moebius at their most acid-fried and wonky. Erm.. actually this is Haswell at his most “techno”.
