Double Leopards-The Axe Helve,LP,1999,USA

This prolific noise drone group features Chris Grey (endless boogie, white rock), Marcia Basette (un, hototogisu, etc) as well as other un member/fursaxa member, grant acker, on one track.Working with almost static forms in a similar way to Japanese Fluxus operatives Taj Mahal Travelers, Double Leopards drop in elliptical melodies and rainbow electronics that flare just beyond the horizon, briefly illuminated by auroral bursts of tone that strafe the sky. Like Coil, Throbbing Gristle or Mirror, there is so much detail to the group's conceptions that they feel inhabited, so much eerie, subliminal action that their instrumentals seem to be undeniably about something, a hunch given further credence by darkly evocative titles.This is their 1st extremely rare LP.
