Album Review

Hana, Anders – “Flesh Dispenser ” – [Utech]

Thurston Hunger   2/20/2006   A Library, CD

Holy shooting guitar star! Anders Hana solo-supernova sparks
here for a full freefire fulmination. It ignites off with
a one-man traffic jam that builds into a burning blizzard.
Second piece spends a little time in some sonic tar pits,
string-sliding whiskers of sabretooth truth, then moving on
to more mastodon arcs of ache, but ultimately the slow
choking, drowning dinosaur death. On to track three, with
chords striking amplifier matches for a while, then the
big bursts use the amps to lift the roof off an arena, this
of course releases feedback furies that whinny wild. Track
four finds the roads open like wrists, expressways grinning
ear to ear. Almost gathers a song by the side of the road,
a stumbling spin through a riff and that high Sonic Youth
secret salute. A rambunctious rambler which at the end is
driving donuts and leaving six-string skidmarks before a
metallic chunk and clunk to the finish line. At times this
felt like it was a Pixies album without all the annoying
song structure and with sheer guitar repercussions in place
of percussion. Nice one for the Utech live gallery…and I
think Noxagt fans have got to be excited that he’s revolving
around that planet these days. (Plus he’s played with Jaga
Jazzist, has a release with Ultralyd on Load, and something
on Rune G too!) Norway’s Highway Star!?! -Hunger
