There are 58 tracks on this release, which runs for a total of 12 minutes and 18 seconds. Some songs â€“ and I use that term extremely loosely for this gang’s blown-out brand of unrelenting, scorched earth noise â€“ barely reach the 10 second mark, while the longest last for only half a minute. Sissy Spacek are to noise like the Tasmanian Devil is to Looney Tunes, or Animal is to The Muppets: they are the craziest but also the most interesting characters.
This compilation collects a couple of now-it’s-here-now-it’s-gone releases in one succinct package. Here, the â€śDashâ€ť LP (featuring Lasse Marhaug of Jazkamer and Will Strangeland of Silver Daggers) is coupled with the â€śAnti-Clockwiseâ€ť seven-inch. Good luck, however, judging who plays what, where a particular track begins or ends, and just what the hell the difference is between one blast of destructo-clang and the next. This is essentially an undifferentiated mass of sheer chaos, enjoyable for splitting your skull or pissing off the neighbors.
If you dig this kind of thing â€“ and on certain days, I most certainly do â€“ it will be right up your alley. It’s like grindcore with the ‘grind’ maximized and the ‘core’ removed.
