More extremely rare material from their later years. This was released in some form as a very limited issue back in the 90s, but this new edition is its first proper release. Rancid Poultry get political? Well, not really, although they were clearly trying to make a statement with this release. But, what to expect? An intensive trip, and a barrage of pieces that rarely let-up, and deliberately scrappy changes and editing, making it feel like a mad post-rock patchwork of pieces in the manner of The Faust Tapes maybe, although it sounds nothing like it!

p.s. completely forgot I wrote this small review in Audion #51 (Spring 2006) in a prp GROUP feature...

The 79 minutes of live jams featured on Rancid Poultry's THE POLITICS OF MONOTONY, from 1994/95 find them in a raw rocking vein, heavy and over-amplified, sounding a little like Peter Frohmader's Nekropolis band, but with an industrial fried edge, and a feel that many people tend to call post-rock these days. Freaky, intense and wild indeed!
