Mindflayer

Its Always 1999

LOAD 059 CD

Robo generated psychic booty
pulse coupled with metro scrambled drumstick action. Battle station personnel
on this disc includes Brian Chippendale of LIGHTNING BOLT and MEERK PUFFY
of FORCEFIELD. The duo have oscillators working overtime in the psychic
war deck and gabba friendly drums. This CD is a re-release of a barely
available record from the Ooo Mau Mau record label from 2001. The record
was recorded in the halls of FORT THUNDER, a deserted cultural bunker/state of the art Dunkin Donuts
in Providence, RI. The record has been re-mastered for loudness and delicacy,
so pay heed.


   The sounds
on this record are the hustle and bustle of bass-bin boom on the space
throughways of the Milky Way circa 3167 A.D. Slowed beats with the force
of tree roots hitting supertanker hulls. Vast radio dish networks with
squelch and pulse tremors using solar systems as tweeters and white dwarfs
as shredded woofers. Your head is caving in, your eyes are melting. Time
is space and colors are sound. All is brown, hail the ramparts, to the
battle stations!
