Incapacitants & TADM - Stocks and Bonds CD
Two of my very favorites on the same disk, now that isn't something you get everyday. There is even a short collaboration track. The first Incapacitants track starts out like a bagpipe that is somehow involved with the creation of these groups of elongated sounds that are drawn out and splashed with some variable doses of feedback. By minute 3, the pipes have completely disappeared and the wall of noise begins. This is smothering noise that you have come to expect and moreover respect from the masters of Mikawa and Kosakai. Both Incapacitants tracks are well over 15 minutes and worth the cash alone, but then to have one the craziest Canadians in noise on the same disk with two long tracks of his own. Yeah baby! Jason continues to amaze me with the intense static harshness that he is able to generate out of computers. You had to see him live with Kazumoto Endo, it was absolutely incomprehensible how menacing the wall of feedback that stood at the feet of the crowd. These tracks are perfect examples in the proper way of implementing computers in noise and possibly even more to prove to those who are still skeptical.
