NINE FINGERED THUG: BITTER BALLADS: 7"

Jul 14, 2011

Sludgy, tribal noise rock courtesy of a band hailing from Raleigh, North Carolina. This seems to be a bit of a concept recording, in that the lyrics to both songs appear to be first-person narratives relating to the relationship of German surrealist artists Hans Bellmer and Unica Zürn, the former best known for his “Die Puppe” series of pubescent dolls, and the latter for her automatic drawings and anagram poetry. If you’re remotely interested in early Swans and the like, you’ll no doubt fine much here you’ll dig.
