CONTACT MIC BY CRANK STURGEON

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 bowels...it'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!

RIP CHARLES GOCHER



Very sad to announce that Charles Gocher (centre) of The Sun City Girls has passed away in the last few days after a three year battle with cancer.
