The first side of this long single - "Evil Monkey Boy" - initially suggests it's going to be a dark Death Metal thing before the multi-layers of agonised sound and distorted human screams twist the thing into another dimension. Overloaded noise backs up on itself like a stinking toilet while the feedback describes strange and arcane shapes. The other side - "She's Not Heavy, She's My Mother" - chooses a dark loop of black fuzz which bridges the gap between GODFLESH and, say, MERZBOW - the base is a series of black loops over which various overdriven sounds of audio torture are spread like some flayed human skin which somehow still screams the death agonies of it's former owner. As with the 'A' side, it metamorphosizes into a serpentine zoomorphic beast before sticking in an endless loop of white noise and high-pitched squeals. Dissonantly, ear-drum-scratchingly delightful.
