Petit, Phillipe – “Henry: The Iron Man” – [Beta-lactum Ring Records]

Two long tracks and one shortie of skritchy scratchy staticy voices, like a deaf-mute’s schitzophrenic thoughts as they walk through a quiet bus station depot. Hollow ambient voices turn into a loud stagnant drone, the bus station bustling now, and loud trains whir and whizzz by like an industrial battlecry, then back into a low monotonous dream. Philippe Petit is not the famous tightrope walker, but rather the creept turntablist. The album is based on a dream of Petit’s where he dreamed?? Shinya Tsukamoto made a twisted re-make of “Eraserhead,” amd he was writing the score… irky.
