Out Now

The ridiculous kicks out the elegant with this unconventional ‘break up LP’ from Welsh anti-artists Awkward Geisha and Lolfa Binc. Neil Crud (un)willingly participates.

Awkward Geisha have lengthy made completely no sense in any respect. Producing, very often unlistenable items for causes solely recognized to them. There is no such thing as a cohesion, I doubt there’s even a plan and there’s positively no level to them in any respect. Extra energy to Awkward Geisha!Churning out a staggering quantity of fabric, they do have a penchant for a split-release at times. This month’s esoteric commerce deal is with Bethesda’s equally obscure Lolfa Binc.

Machine Tribe Recordings of New York get the honour of brokering the deal and ‘Sugar Romeo’ bizarrely opens with a two-minute teaser trailer / observe for this very album. Uncommon for Awkward Geisha, they virtually observe conference with a few actual songs! First murdering Elkie Brooks’ traditional, Pearl’s A Singer. Fortunately although, whereas Pearl is taking part in songs on the piano, this model disintegrates into white noise (an AG trademark). The subsequent observe, See You In Disneyland follows the same path, solely it’s 13 minutes lengthy, with over half the tune giving solution to excessive frequency drill noises (for artwork’s sake after all). 

Erectile Dysfunction is the title and topic of observe 5 – utilizing narrative from a medical journal over incidental drums. We end in the same vein, solely Brummy pork pie methodology takes centre stage! Cwmbran is an odd place, it’s stuffed with awkward Geishas.

Enter Lolfa Binc for his or her facet of the cassette. A band who’ve set fireplace to phases, squirted moisturiser in radio studios and defied purpose and sensibility since their immaculate inception. Their contribution to this outlandish, but tremendous launch is the thirty minute title observe. Slipping out and in of their native Welsh and English, Lolfa Binc additionally slip into an incomprehensible karma coma. Sugar Romeo prods alongside, probing the sonisphere by means of a distant megaphone because the beat throbs till all of it fades away. A bleak panorama slowly takes its place, obscured by clouds, as echoes of Pompeii Floyd swirl across the room. It’s a very good ummagummered ten minutes earlier than issues begin choosing up from the place we left off. Mouthpiece, Rhys Trimble dials again into The Matrix and stutters by means of a vortex of added infinitum. Effectively, sixty two minutes of painful pleasure…
