INRYOU FUEN-DAKYOSEZU, FLEXI, 198?, JAPAN
Maddeningly (almost autistically) bloody minded dirge repetition from this lost-to-time Japanese outfit released by Cragale records and, like the rest of that label's vast discography, documenting the sub-underground scene that sprang from the environs of the Minor club (Fushitsusha, Kousokuya, Maher Shalal Hash Baz et.al.)) in the early 80's; the thud trudge here unexpectedly blossoming into electronically tweaked splatter and hectoring lip flap for the final one third.
INRYOU FUEN-SHINA SHINA, 198?, JAPAN
More peculiar machinations from this above mentioned crew, here splaying out into a more psych-as-psych-qua-psych (albeit distended and discombobulated) formulation on the A side and doing a sorta
all-knees-and-elbows Elliott Sharp-like scrabble/scratch post-No-Wave thing across the flip.
INZUCHT & ORDNUNG-IRRENANSTALT/AUSSICHTSLOS, 1980, GERMANY
Prototypically tensile and anxiety plagued Neue Deutsche Welle girning and churning on the legendary Zickzack label. Almost texbook stuff from the more punk with a capital "P" dimension of the scene and certainly fun enough for what it is, if a mite more rock basic than what you'll usually find me posting.
ISAN/PHONOPHANI-S/T-SPLIT 7", U.K./NORWAY-2002
Lovely (if not lovingly pressed) split between two formidable movers on the abstract electronica circuit; Isan doling out a beatific swath of their patented pastel shaded post-Sky Records thing to lovely effect and Phonophani (aka Esper Sommer Eide, one half of seminal Rune Gramofon recording artists Alog) responding with a beautifully blanketing fathoms-deep harmonic blur of striated tones.
KEMIALLISET YSTAVAT-ULTRA, 2005, FINLAND
Ultra documents these cornerstone merchants of the Finish communal freak folk continuum at the very peak of their third-mind psych improv powers and coming off a bit on this occasion like an ergot poisoned Vibracathedral Orchestra.
KINO TONE-GET OFF MY BACK/LACUNA~LIMBO, 198?, NETHERLANDS
Jauntily eccentric early 80's post punk art pop from this exceedingly obscure Dutch unit that would have fit like a charm in the Cherry Red stable.
KJERTL DEL BRONDO GROUP-S.T. EP, 199?, NORWAY
Screwy and unpredictable art rock-into-garage-punk oddness from this Byron Coley-approved Norwegian outfit featuring one Sindre Bjerga who'd hereafter go on to generate a vast discography of improvised strangeness as part of the Bjerga/Iverson duo.
ANDREW KLIMEK-AFTERBATHINGINTURPENTINE, 1979, USA
Wonderfully damaged sounding post punk experimental rock in a disjunctive Beefheart-by-way-of-Tin-Huey stylee from this Cleveland underground scenester. Andrew was the brother of Styrenes/Mirrors member Jamie Klimek and a member of Anton Fier's pre-Pere Ubu/Golden Palominos unit Ex-Blank-Ex, but the reemergence of this sick treasure should hopefully insure some notoriety for him in his own right.
