EVIL MOISTURE/COMMODE MINSTRELS IN BULLFACE-S/T, SPLIT 7", 2001, UK/USA
British nutter Andy Bolus cuts a swath of his patented lo-fi dadaist tape collage cacophony across the A-side of this curiously packaged split single (wonder if they all came with Clive Barker comics attached?) while Caroliner Rainbow offshoot Commode Minstrels In Bullface help extend the ergot poisoned Caroliner aesthetic into zones of insular and twig rustlingly organic improv praxis across the flip side.
EXPANDED MUSIC COMPANY-TU SCENDI DALLE STELLE, ONE-SIDED 7", 1982, ITALY
This Italian mystery item (an accompaniment to some sorta theatrical spectacle, if memory of an old auction description serves) leads listeners in on the faintest vapor trail of ghost melody before forcefully sucking them through a wormhole into a dystopian psychotropic dimension of synth stacked malevolence straight out of the Heldon playbook. Staggering.
FACTRIX CAZAZZA-PRESCIENT DREAMS/ZANONI, 1983, USA
I'm not entirely clear on what Monte Cazazza's role is here (having not closely followed his activities), but the vibe on this fascinating single largely correlates with the eerie and slightly subterranean sounding post-psychedelic probings that this San Francisco experimental outfit proposed on their superb Scheintot LP (posted by Jim a while back), though the narration on Prescient Dreams and the Wurlitzer beat that underpins the latter half of Zanoni help give this single a distinct scent.
FAHNLEIN FIESELSCHWEIF-S/T, 1981, GERMANY
Cheerfully lopsided and sometimes mutant funky Neue Deutsche Welle post punk playfulness pitched somewhere between Tom Dokoupil's work with Wirtschaftswunder and Silouettes 61 and the C.U.B.S. single I posted back in an earlier installment of this 7" series.
FAXED HEAD-S/T E.P., 1992 + SHOW PRIDE IN COALINGA/THE COLORS OF COALINGA, 1993 + NECROGENOMETRY E.P., 1993, USA
A demented triptych of dada garbled death metal detournments from this Bananfish-approved mob of pranksters.
FIBO-TRESPO/PHONOPHANI-KADOK?/END OF ALL THINGS-SPLIT 7", 2000, NORWAY
Terrific split between these two notable Norwegian experimental projects; Fibo-Trespo (aka Sindre Bjerga and Kjetil Brandsdal) cutting a delightfully unstable path across the A-side with their pitching and listing loop wobble-and-synth-puncture assemblage, while the gorgeously organic and defocused abstract electronica that Alog member Espen Sommer Eide's constructs under his Phonophani guise wraps your brain in nocturnally undulating tides of half-faded thrum, rustle and muted pulse across the B-side.
