    Very f-ed up to include psychologically harmful backward masking. At least they’re honest about it. One reason I never will listen to a NON record. A misanthrope like Boyd Rice is not to be trusted.

      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.
