MIRROR/DASH - "I CAN'T BE BOUGHT"

Anyway, so Cloudboy and I were checking out Thoughtforms a couple weeks back and there was a particular point where the frequencies started to rub against each other creating a sort of microtonal cascade of harmonics and I thought to myself, hmmm, yeeeeeah, sounds kinda like Sonic Youth...

At that exact second CB turned and whispered excitedly: "Wow. Does this remind you a bit of Sonic Youth?" There was a particular quality to the sound wh/ we both agreed could be described as 'chiming'...

Well, plennnny of chiming goin' on here, on "I Can't Be Bought" a live freak-out by Kim and Thurston from SY. Notes ring against each other; guitars howl and collapse in waterfall-like shards of noizzzze; Kim moans like an old ghost locked under the floorboards while Thurston seemingly dismantles his pick-ups from the inside-outwards and at one point it sounds like a motorcade of police-cars driving past at high speed: in otherwards, the usual....and v. pleasing to the ears it is too. It's spooky, sexy, smart, skronky; each in turn.



And, speaking of SY, I'm off to this in a couple hours. Accompanied by one of the biggest collections of Yeovil-centric freaks assembled in a while: Farmer Glitch, Bren-W, Flinty, Spike, Shaggy and Lurch (well, okay, he's a London boy these days, but I've seen him covered in woad dancing round a burning wickerman full of charred yuppies...): South Somerset heroes, one and all.

The line-up is apocalyptically great (and only an hour or so's drive from 1973) w/ a whole bunch of my favourite bands and artists in attendence (and if you're going too, then step up and say hi...):
