It Ain't Happenin' c30
Similar to Vampire Belt & Flower-Corsano this here is a Superduo. Christopher Riggs and Percussion SUPERSTAR Ben Hall [hey he played with Bill Dixion. That goes a long way in ma book.] make some glorious racket.
I mean COME ON.
This shit just ain't fair.
There's no doubt in my mind that this is one of those very underappreciated lps.
some great post-ashtray noise/drone/whatever. I tend to sandwich this between Birds of Delay & Temperatures lps for whatever that's worth.
It's a shame that the grand total amount of Vampire Belt releases is a paltry sum of four. Granted, all of them make up for it by the sheer quality of them, but it's still something I can bitch about right?
I mean, granted it's not like we're lacking Nace and especially Corsano stuff, but there's something fucking special when these two madmen play together in this context.
If you haven't heard Vampire Belt think free improv guitar/drum stuff. Ascension, Thurston's collabs with Tom Surgal, etc.

Anyone who read this blog before I hit that giant restart button in the sky probably knows that I'm a big fan of Cousins of Reggae, Dreamcatcher & of course Thames.
Thames is sorta inbetween Dreamcatcher & Cousins in sound. Sorta a wild mix between the fucked band vibe of Cousins and the noise duo Dreamcatcher.
Really great stuff.
Patriotic Window Klings
I'll be the first to admit that I thought this was going to be a Ducktails or Sam Merguine clone based on the cover art and the band name.
Welp, book cover judge and all that crap.
Instead it's a hot guitar duo noise improvy record. So in other words it's my sheeeeit.
