Porest “Tourrorist” [Abduction Records]
jack soil 3/15/2006 A Library
Oakland’s very own Mark Gergis (also in MonoPause, Neung Phak) and bunch of other usual Bay Area suspects figuratively fly a passenger jet into the towers of the plunderphonics genre. This is just about as politically charged as any record ever could be, For your first listen (especially taken as a whole), Tourrorist will more than likely offend more than entertain (as by design ‘I’m sure). Tracks 3 and 4 will have you taking a second and third listen to wrap your skull around the message. Another note on track 4; this is a synth disco track from Finland’s Aavikko but in English) Dismantle your dirty bomb and what do you have? But, keep it all connected in a little brown suitcase and you’ve got a powerhouse of a weapon. As the DJ, you’re the carrier; so, the payload is up to you. Audio terrorism in this age = some touchy shit; would Mohammed the Prophet approve? You be the judge.
