Birchville Cat Motel – “Seventh Ruined Hex ” – [Important Records]

Nozmo King   2/2/2008   A Library, CD

Eschewing all shimmery or hyper-rock amptones, Cammpbell Kneale spreads a generously dense, searing dronecrusher in five relentless parts. Do yourself a favor: Feast your eyes on the liminal photos inside this mini-gatefold while the record is playing. The palpable tension in the air molecules eminating forth from speakers are a perfect juxtaposition! I asked Campbell about the context. Supposedly it’s a Javanese ritual wherein these people actually feign suicide to cut the demons, who have infested them, out of their bodies. Matthew Bower (Pure, Total, Sunroof, etc) lends a hand, heaping blissful chaotic guitar sludge as only he does best.
