WRECK OF THE HESPERUS / DE NOVISSIMIS: Split: 10”

Both of these artsy, crusty bands play indecipherable, annoying, and maddening doom from Dublin. Each artist lays down one bizarre track, with Wreck Of The Hesperus being slower and crazier than De Novissimis. De Novissimis features not one, but two wacky “singers,” one of whom had a creature-like tenor to his voice reminiscent of voices on the soundtrack of the film Ghoulies III: Ghoulies Go to College. This record is the musical equivalent of setting one’s pubes on fire, and I do not mean that as any sort of compliment.
