EYE/THREE FORKS-SPLIT POLYCARBONATE LATHE 10", 2005, NEW ZEALAND





One of the current manifestations of New Zealand underground luminary Peter Stapleton (Terminals, Pin Group, Bilders, Scorched Earth Policy etc.), Eye's initial salvo here on this 50 copy lathe cut split disc is two minutes of shattered free rock in the distinct mode of Dead C, followed much more enticingly by an eight minute fragile flicker of decayed guitar harmonics and above the fretboard clinks and chimes that creates mystery and drama from subtly manipulating these bare embers, while unknown quantities Three Forks fill the flip with a squashed and wobbly L.A. Free Music Society-like universe of small toy abuse, pause button tape mangle, broken key wander and dadaist lip flap that falls away to reveal the ravaged remains of an acid folk undercarriage.

Thanks, great record! Eye stuff rules all the way through, and once Three Forks gets past the vocals I really dig it even if its kinda quiet from there on out.

Very cool! For yr info: Three Forks consist of free-form NZ guitar legend Donald McPherson, Tim Cornelius (of NZ improv-noise merchants Sandoz Lab Technicians) and Jim Currin (of Ray Off, and boss of United Fairy Moons label). They've released a couple of CDs as well, one on Peter Stapleton's Metonymic label and one on United Fairy Moons.

I just picked up a copy of this... for some reason there was one for sale in a store in St. Paul, Minnesota. Quite interesting. If you would be interested in purchasing it or know anyone who would want it please send me an email at: concerttrading@gmail.com
