Crank Sturgeon – “Hair On The Fozen ‘Nial” – [Self Released]

Talk about a mind fuck.. where do I start? There is nothing wrong with the cd player and no, your brain is not short circuiting.. Crank Sturgeon is a madman from Maine whose creations are concocted using homemade, ultra-sensitive vocal/contact microphones.. plus a whole slew of other found sound sources, instruments, machines and god knows what else. These pieces are about as schizophrenic as it gets. You shut up when I’m talking to myself, bitch. Imagine a tiny little sound amplified times 100, chopped up, looped and layered.. a noisy, scratching, gurgling, scraping, glitching cacophony! Plenty of weird human mouth sounds here.. words or burps or throat clearings.. all the voices in my head talking over each other all at once -take turns god fucking damn it before I bust a vein! And just before chaos gets the best of you, Crank will break out into a catchy little, awkwardly delivered jig..circumscribed within the brain tease.. sing along on track 1,12, 15 or all of them??. Try track 4-its about making friends! Nonsensical spoken word- esque slurpiness on #7 (mandating, womendating, reproduction maybe?) or #9..#6 is comprised entirely of SHITnFUCKnDAMN. Hair on the Frozen ‘Nial is delivered with the most sophisticated and refined sense of humor. I still find you attractive as hellakjhdkjlahsd9kdjbvzjkchv -Surfer Rosa
