Wright, Peter – “Terrifying Realisation We Might Be Wrong, The” – [dirty knobby]

peterwright2_front_large RESIZED.jpg

2009 Dirty Knobby Deed Done Dirt Right (and added now here
at KFJC in 2011). Peter Wright is a New Zealand transplant
to ol’ Blighty UK. Let’s start on the flip first, two tracks
that I almost wish had been interspliced. The ramshackle
unplugged electric guitar of “Little Voices” played through a
vacuum cleaner, sets the sky for an expected Flying Saucer Attack,
instead a silent spin or two and then up into echelon
atmosphere. “Folksong for Degeneration – Version II” could
almost be the long wire separated at birth resonance of the
first track. Slow glissando escalator through the heavens.
The title track, has air sirens and distant bombs with
their fuses scraped, guitar ploonges, panic in the streets
but after a while the sound thins out, time stops, we live,
in peace and in pieces. To me, this is “active drone” if
not in fact radioactive. There is a short feedback coda
after some silence at the end, perhaps that is the “Terrifying
Realisation…” For me, it was that this 7″ is over much too quickly.
