AS "..." as "......."
Port Radium

[Dasein Edition, www.dasein.biz]

I've no idea what the fuck this is and I'm not too concerned. I don't care who's behind this brief little 11 minute onslaught of cacophony. I don't know if the CD came with a bunch of books, inside of a pamphlet or perhaps was smothered in political agenda! Whether these people are trying to make a statement, prove a point or simply make audio art is not that crucial. What's important is this release exists. I don't care if this assault group plays with rifles, broken records, and static or smashed up, re-processed guitars. I couldn't care less if they own the latest music software or if they recorded this on a Vic-20. The blasts are fuzzy guitars, complex electronics mish-mashed with deathly silence. The grating noise brings images of abandoned industrial sites to mind, while the pacing is crazy fast. Before you know it, 11 minutes have flown by and you're all the richer for it. The CD itself comes encased inside of a 120 mm x 120 mm mostly green fold-out poster. The cost is a mere 5 Euros. Grating, resilient and brave as hell, whoever these people are, they've just impressed me. With a limited pressing of only 300 copies, you'd better get yours now to prove you're the only one on your block to blast this stuff to annoy your neighbours.
