ANARCHISTWOOD: The Nasty Album: LP

What the fuck is this? Weirdo hippy anarchist art punk from the U.K., like a psychotic mix of Crass, Gang Of Four, and Frank Zappa—weird squeaks and bleeps, manic time signatures, and a garbled, strange message. The pictures online of the main guy plus supporting band has them all dressed up in costumes with him wriggling and writhing into the crowd. This is the sound and vision of my absolute worst nightmare. You know when the CIA use torture, they blast high pitch sounds to confuse the detainees? Well, if they used this, I’d sing like a fucking canary. Un-fucking believably terrible. –Tim Brooks (Ex Gratia, exgratiarecording.bandcamp.com)
