Tongue on Finger

Welcome return for this legendary UK underground cell from Newcastle, piloted by Ben Jones and Hasan Gaylani now for many, many years: edition of only 50 copies six-track cassette album that occupies a nocturnal zone of bowed and struck electro-acoustic soundings somewhere downwind of Organum, NNCK et al. That patented Jazzfinger dead-at-the-steering-wheel drone, achieved through the obsessive application of busted cassette decks, is at the heart of this new work, with pulsing low-grade atmospherics over slow Chalk-like accordion drones, buzzing, tactile string work... aspects of MEV’s sci-fi/Industrial masterpiece, Leave The City w/a similarly dramatic and atmospheric approach to junkyard ritual make this one of the highlights of the SOC catalogue to date: recommended!
