Mincemeat Or Tenspeed / Drums Like Machine Guns [coll] – [Badmaster]

Two noise bands on a split LP from Badmaster records.

The Drums Like Machine Guns contribution (censored dude side) is feedback guitar vamping and distorted echoing bass drum and vox. Track 2 is probably my favorite on this side for its detuned guitar chording that degenerates into electronic fuzzy video game doom pulses. Many of the tracks are strong but sound fairly typical of the harsh noise genre, feedback and static the bricks and mortar in a wall of sound.

The Mincemeat or Tenspeed contribution (kitteh side) has more musical elements both melodically and rhythmically. Although split into 3 tracks they all track through nicely if you feel like playing a sidelong. It starts out with a simple melody of repeated notes which is manipulated in various ways over the three tracks and is ultimately deconstructed into noise. That might sound a little tedious but the manipulations are varied enough to keep it interesting.

All tracks instrumental noise, FCC clean.
