STATIC EFFECT-DEAD GAME IN ANY WEATHER, TAPE, 1989, USA


Following on from my share of their Certain Random Firings LP way back in 2007, here's more of Randy Greif and Mikahil Bohonus' signature mix of dystopian malaise and atmospheric pressure. Greif's is a name that long time followers of Mutant Sounds should have some familiarity with; several albums of his having been shared by both Jim and myself over time, this long time sub-underground operative having been one of the more significant innovators to have emerged from the recesses of 80's/90's post-industrial cassette culture. I've not heard Bohonus' main project Warworld, but from all available indicators, Greif's hand feels like the decisive one here, with the dank zones of fecund rot and swamp gas atmospherics here emitting much the same sense of evocative dread as did the majority of his solo work from this period, with the third untitled track here in particular evincing Greif's absorption and re-contextualization of Jon Hassell's Fourth World concepts into something inverted and malarial.
