Fricara Pacchu-Waydom,tape,2005,Finland

A first solo recording(limited to 200 copies) from the lines of Maniacs Dream! Nasty and blasty Fricara is the coolest. Does this tell about Tao Tao's mutation with a carcass? No, this has nothing to do with problems. It goes over everything, it's the best, all the rest is wiped away. When Paavi heard this he said it was the best thing he had heard after hearing the Faust Tapes in 1995. The salesman was drunk and told the young pope to watch out for mushrooms starting to grow in his head.

Reviews
"If there’s any contemporary label that could pull off the difficult task of promoting the cassette format it’s probably the amazing Finnish Lal Lal Lal imprint. To tell you the truth I couldn’t care less about the format of Fricara Pacchu’s Waydom though, as it’s such an impressive slab of primitive folk clatter, deranged psychedelia, motorik krautrock and feedback-riddled ceremonies. Waydom is like an uncontrollable volcano of instrumentation floating together to an impressive and majestic lava flow, initially interesting for its power more than the mind-puzzling polyrhythmic structures laying beneath, that doesn't strike me until much later. It’s like a pulsating tangle of the styles mentioned above and it’s all repeated till it invokes a sinister aural nightmare. Waydom has the shamanic and somewhat tribal feel of Avarus and Siamese Temple Ball but is still sounds modern in a Sunroof! meets Dead C kind of way. Essential." - Mats Gustafsson / Broken Face
"Another killer hit from the Pfinland psych pscene. A lot of the music coming from this camp sounds like a bunch of people shaking things and blowing other things like crazy, which is usually pretty cool, but I like it even better when they use an electric guitar or two, lock in on some circular riffs, fall into a heavy backbeat, and make the whole thing shine like glowing embers. That's exactly what's going on here with Fricara Pacchu's Waydom cassette. We're talking LOCKED in -- hell yeah, these are grooves. Like all the best Finland stuff, it sounds like droned-out Sun Ra-meets-Dead C ethnic music that you can worship pagan concepts to with no persecution complex whatsoever. Apparently Fricara Pacchu is just one person, from the band Maniacs Dream, but he or she sounds like a band to me -- one of the best in Finland!" - Larry "Fuzz-O" Dolman / Blastitude

Awesome tape....take some weird folk mix it with twisted krautrock and then put it on the blender with spoonfull of freaked out psychedelia ...

I think track 3 of the Fricara Pacchu is corrupted.

Haha! The Finnish psych/folk scene was pretty cool for about a month then it got ridiculous beyond words. I'm surprised anyone still cares!

I've been wanting to hear this, thanks!

Alfred!
America's 'free folk' scene isn't as bloated? C'mon, every scene that starts off great gets gross in the end! The cream will rise etc. Just a thought, not an attack, read it in conversational tones.

Remember that Simpsons episode where Homer becomes an outsider artist? I think Alfred is one of the gallery owner's eurotrash (or would it be be ameritrash?) friends...
