Wow! After 7 minutes or so the creation of a screaming with energy, high frequency hallucinatory pagoda occurs, not from the instruments directly but from the interaction of the sound waves. It's awe inspiring.
Fabulous lo-fi psychedelic heavyness on offer here. New tracks ooze with fuzzy evilness like the joy of a trip going bad and the 19minute Newcastle gig that's on the b-side is just mental. I had the pleasure of being there too. Top banana.
Favorite track: Hallucinatory Pagoda (Part 1).
The first edition was limited to 50 numbered copies with orange tape shells with printed colour inlay/insert. A second edition of 25 copies with baby blue shells followed shortly after the first. Both now SOLD OUT

The second release on RS offshoot label Swap Meat. This time it's a trip into the murky world of Lobster Priest, featuring members of featuring members of Bong, Haikai No Ku etc. Completely out there psychedelic guitar howls lost in a murky fog of sludge filled riffs. Hi-fi this isn't, righteous it is.

Not sure I do. A lot to take in. Price per track great but just chose a songtitle, for all I know it could be Tropical Trash! But ... "Jungle Rot" I think it was? The sleeve to that was cool. I think... (Maybe take another look?) Summation? Wouldn't buy a limited press onto a vinyl family the size of an "Apu gag" for a dollar. My reasons are private. Paul Schwarz

Well this is damn good. I’m struggling to describe it, but here goes: Birthday Party era Nick Cave arthouse post punk with a stoner rock vibe to the production. Whew!
The bass drives the music and there is considerable variety between the songs. They tag it as, among others, psychedelic rock, and while I’m not sure I hear it, this lines up nicely with other recent standout additions to my collection like Hochen, Dreamtime, and Black Rainbows, who also use that tag. So maybe it’s just me. Lute FP
