LP documenting a live collaboration between Factrix (an experimental guitar band led by Bond Bergland, who’d go on to front the Saqquara Dogs) and Monte Cazazza (whose recordings for TG’s Industrial label pushed John Duncan-like buttons galore). Tanna Emmolo-Smith (Monte’s usual collab) is here, as is Z’ev. And the material is riotously noisy, if not quite as disturbing as it probably was if you could see the projected visuals. Back in this era of industrial performance they showed some rough shit. Or at least what I considered rough shit. Sonically, this is a really lovely mess.
