Album Review

Maldoror – “She ” – [Ipecac]

Thurston Hunger   5/29/2006   A Library, CD

An album every bit as cracked as its CD
case. Pretty in Pink, and in Pain/Pleasure
A pairing here of Mike Patton and Merzbow
with some howling electronics. Band name
taken from a story by sense-insatiable
french writer Latreaumont… Hyperactive
and humourous, a noise theme park run by
cartoon characters gone to seed…or is it
to speed? High paced ping pong matches of
scream and static that are immensely likable.
It starts with some klunky toon fx, track
6 is just beautiful. Title and packaging
make me think this is what really goes on
inside the heteroversexed mind…sent to
us by Ipecac, Patton’s label with his mgr
Greg…who when sending it to us said, you
guys will probably play this. Change that
probably to definitely. KFJC offers a home
for all Hanna Barbarians crashing the gate.
