Fixateur Externe – Disco Satan USB (Unsigned)

Here’s another dosage of Hungarian avant-garde experimentations, but this time it comes with a twist. Fixateur Externe are not strangers to these pages, and previously I had a chance to review a couple of their recordings. This material could easily pass as various artist compilation, mainly because this release represents a collection of remixes. Disco… Read More Fixateur Externe – Disco Satan USB (Unsigned)

Abattoir & Satori – Megaloschemos Live CS (Unsigned)

At first, I thought this was a split cassette release, but after a while, I realized it is a live collaboration between Abattoir and Satori. This material is not their first collaboration, and previously they released the album version of Megaloschemos and another collaborative cassette named Aether. Abattoir is a side project of Lorenzo Abattoir,… Read More Abattoir & Satori – Megaloschemos Live CS (Unsigned)

Fixateur Externe – A Fekete Gong CS (Unsigned / Blastbeat Worship)

Here’s another interesting experimental recording, recently released by Unsigned and Blastbeat Worship. Like many other avant-garde outlets, Fixateur Externe are strangers to these pages, and I previously had a chance to review a couple of their releases. Fixateur Externe is more of a collective than a project, mainly because it gathers various Hungarian experimental artists… Read More Fixateur Externe – A Fekete Gong CS (Unsigned / Blastbeat Worship)

After the Match Game 7″ comes the second full-length recording by Science Man. Once again, John Toohill proved there are no boundaries when it comes to writing and publishing everything in the true spirit of the DIY ethos. We all know that prolific artists are becoming repetitious or losing quality during mass production, but Toohill… Read More Science Man – II LP + Flexi 7″ (Swimming Faith / Big Neck Records)

Science Man – Match Game 7″ (Swimming Faith Records)

During the day, John Toohill is a creative individual who performs with the bands such as Alpha Hopper, The Hamiltons, Night Slaves, Spit Kink, The Midnight Vein, Black & White Cat / Black & White Cake, Cobra Cobra, and I probably forgot some other bands he crossed paths with during his musical endeavors. In the… Read More Science Man – Match Game 7″ (Swimming Faith Records)

Captain Frederickson is one of those groups focusing on the humorous side of life, but still, the group supports charities with their… Read More Captain Frederickson – Absolute Disaster
