LISTEN IN AT LEAST TWO YEARS DEPT: Mouth Crazy LP. If
you read my last column, you'll realize I've been dusting
off all the old Ecstatic Ass Run LPs. So, 30 years from
now, will these be selling for $50 or more, displayed
low under the glass cases or high on the walls of record
stores? I could see the noise-prov blare of the Max Factory
LP sounding a lot more mind-blowing in 30 years than it
does now. The same goes for Mouth Crazy, except that it
also happens to sound mind-blowing now; this is an excellent
LP. They're a trio doing the whole drony/noise-jam/trance-drumming
thing. As a thing, it is NOT new, not at all, but just
because something isn't new doesn't mean it can't be MADE
new. (That's what Ezra Pound was talkin' about...) The
New Faggot Cunts from Nashville, TN actually sound a lot
like this band -- both even have a girl in the
band. But while the NFC's are really good at this style
and surely getting better even as I speak, Mouth Crazy
are BLESSED with it. Plus, they achieve that thing that
it so rare for musicians of any genre: SPARSENESS.
it! That's all I've got! Dolman's column has made me feel
like I'm being redundant! He stole my idea! Just so he
could make a Larry King joke! The bastard! I quit!
Sonder lives in Lincoln, and recently celebrated his
1000th consecutive day spent sitting at his home computer
listening to records. (He did participate in the interview
with Matt Silcock about Raymond Pettibon, but during
it he was still sitting at his computer and he played
records throughout.) Don't miss his dense 'new records'
