Due Process – “Combine XXIII-XXXV” – [Phage Tapes]

Might as well call this OverDue Process, potentially the third
or later installment but the first to make it to KFJC, and in a
way make it from KFJC. Some of the source sounds here were shot
out on KFJC’s signal back on Dec 10th, 2005 when Emil Beaulieu
(nee RRRon Lessard) swung by our station, surely with KFJC
ally Thomas Dimuzio at his side. Those two gents, along with
John Wiggins constitue the Due Process-ors, who for 20
years have ping-ponged sound through the mail, the internet
and their sonic intestines. Of some note, especially on
side B, Zanstones wheeze-weaves some Kentucky squeeze box
into the mix. Quite nice as the processing here often as
a sort of inhaling kind of rhythm/wave to it. The first
side has insects bouncing off tiny springs or so it sounds
to me, some underwater reverb too. I think Wiggins brings
plenty of percussion into his mixes. Felt like lingering
organ to was involved, but it is all probably switches,
pedals and synth in various guises. The last three
tracks on side B are apparently the source material,
the very last being the most mellow, but far from a
drone. Burstiness seemed to be a recurring motif, and
maybe more humor than one might expect. Although online
I found their “Future Flashback” which was a cool
audio cartoon crowded with folks. This is more
subdued with industrial shades, but again a light
almost humorous touch. Noise plays, not slays.
