Work continues, meanwhile, on the mind-blowing debut album by Ice Bird Spiral...but to help record some particularly difficult n dirty sounds, I was recently forced to buy a contact-mic built by Crank Sturgeon.

(Click to enlarge n you can read all the bumph about it)

Crank's mics are pretty damn legendary in the noise underground; you can mic up & record virtually anything w/ one of his mics: from a sperm-whale to an ant to your own'll record the lot! However, he warns his customers not to put it in a lawn-mower or smash it against bricks...I dunno, that blob of resin is pretty sturdy lookin', if you ask me.

See what we're up against? Yeah:

Tremble, puny mortals, for this is what'll happen to you when you dare become part of the Free Noise Scene. My God, he's like fucking Galactus or something, but with a fish-head. Watch out! H-he's here, too!

“however i can’t guarantee its lifespan if you go around amplifying lawnmowers, wacking it against bricks, or chewing it”... hahaha!

BTW, the voiceover request is "yes"! give us the lyrics and we'll give you muttered vikingwordzzzzzz

The "Eardrums shall fail" blog said:

"Remixing is raised to art status when you give new life to music, any type of music. To see potential in a boring cut, to push the envelope all the way to different galaxies, to let your mind wander where the original intention left off - all this presumes passion and marquees lighting up over your head as opposed to a mere lightbulb. A writer, most of the time, is a passionate reader first and a remixer of words second. Tago-Mago does that with music. I may not like each and every track but that would be a strange and new feeling anyway. Rarely have I heard a reinvention of music I was, or thought I was, familiar with, in such unexpected ways. His major influence is Can, and the mixes are inspired by a variety of hip hop and electronica artists."
