4-way C90 sprawl featuring equal parts US and UK underground talent- on the YELLOW side, Texan legends Book of Shadows weigh in with a suite of glowing psychedelic excellence, followed by the curious loops and esoteric ambience of the hermetic Harridans of the Harvest…flip the tape over to the BLUE side and you’ll find a stellar stretch of liminal minimalism from Nectar of the Moon (aka Gitche-Anahmi-Bezheu, Dream Safari, Water Lily Jaguar etc), while Blackpool’s 14 Graves of Interest wrap up proceedings with the first of their sinister tributes to ’70s/’80s trash horror movie wonderment…

Double cassette madness from this odd couple- on “Crumbling Mouth Parables”, Scrapie Flock provide all the dark, dank agricultural decreptitude you could ever wish for…deeply parasitic synth and feedback cling to the damp underbelly of collaged wood/metal/glass improv…meanwhile Playful Dick have cooked up some fresh music to accompany a bunch of ancient, previously unused lyrics, coming across in the process a little like Richard Youngs trying to make a Black Sabbath mini-album…or is it the other way around?! For “Treatments”, the Flock and the Dick swapped scraps and proceeded to commit heinous acts upon said source sounds, to predictably DELIGHTFUL effect.

Green C50 + C40 cassettes in a clear double case with full colour artwork and tape labels, plus inserts.

Come the end it razzed and writhed somewhere near the floor- a fart so ripe, there for all to savour…pointed disappointment, no itch to scratch, though soon enough in swooped fantasies, scenes of ill repute, dreams of startling reality…we’d already paid for our punishment upon gelatinous groundings and sought solace in clouds and cats and gypsies…the rest we’ll save ’til bedtime…though wind back twelve and we wuz barely cookin’- still suckling on the misery tit, extra helpings of bacon- everything so primitive, the interiors so very ’70s…trundling through mulch brought its own problems- a new pit to fill…there was little we could put into words, but we all knew it needed spelling out…O-U-T…

Clear cassette with gold liner and a red sticker in a clear case with full colour artwork (choice of two different covers), plus an insert.
