TURK KNIFES POPE-MAD DOG, CD, 1997, USA








These accomplished and largely overlooked Long Beach, California drone merchants both predate and surpass much of the mountain of work of a similar stripe thats accumulated in the years hence as The Drone has assumed primacy in many avant quarters. Drone is as drone does and iterating what distinguishes Turk Knifes Pope from their peers would have to begin with the sonics themselves, which are by turns buttery rich and tartly astringent, febrile with harmonic excitation, warmly enveloping (if emotionally unsettling) and beautifully produced with strafed layers of harmonium wheeze, string scrape and electronic burr rippling across the cilia of your ear canals like the sexiest sandpaper ever.

Great stuff! Even managed to grab the album for cheap after hearing it here :) Any other stuff by Turk Knifes Pope or similar acts would be highly appreciated!

What a great album! Could you perhaps upload the 'Turk Knifes Pope / Petit Mal - Sleep Therapy Suite / The Process of Emptying an Open Window' split CD as well (Zenflesh One)?
