Health Program, the [coll] – [Boyarm]

Strange stuff. The Boyarm label claims “we have formed our own niche in the category of abrasive music.”. And so they have. For this CD, they took recordings of a typically hyperactive death metal drummer (John Caldwell of Lucifer’s Hammer) playing solo, and sent a different portion of those recordings to each of fifteen noise-type artists. The artists were instructed to add whatever they like as long as they leave the drum track just the way it is. An odd idea, but what the hell. So we end up with fifteen short noise pieces, each one having Those Big Drums as its centerpiece. Seems to me that no matter what else got added to them, the pummeling drums still end up as the star of every piece. Hard to single out any particular track(s); they are all strange, interesting, and, yes, abrasive.
