This is SCORN as you have probably never heard them. Harkening back to the days when it was MICK HARRIS & NICK BULLEN this shows how experimental they could sound on stage - "Lament" being recorded in Mezzago, Italy back in October 1992. It's a churning loop tape without rhythm, a massive wall of cacophonic sound which coils out like great serpentine muscles, ready to constrict the listener to fragmented bones and pulped flesh. And great - why should they have chosen a 'song' for the single. It mutates and deforms, and always has the audience on tenterhooks waiting for the mighty drum rhythms to kick in. The second side is a remix/reconstruction of the "Deliverance" track "Black Sun Rising". It's almost completely based on the mutilation of the spoken title, which washes around like a whirlpool in a Tar Pit, endorsing the spectator to accept it's terminal embrace and be sucked down into eternal darkness.

I wonder what the number is for on the runout groove? I called it when this came out, but it just rang and rang...
