about

'The Slate Pipe Banjo Draggers actually sound like their name; one gets the sense that a few home-made noise generators were mishandled and/or abused in the making of this CD-R. Seafood Recipes plays a like a catalog of modern electro/post rock/noise maneuvers, and I mean that in the best possible way. This is not some Tortoise-like belly-crawling muzak. A more accurate comparison would be Third Eye Foundation; opener, Alpine Sin Balloon, combines that sense of foreboding - skeletal rhythms, moody guitars and screaming nightmare distortion, with big beats and skittering percussion. The spirit of the late great Muslimgauze is resurrected in the trippy ethno pulse soundtrack of The Filth of Britain, and may as well throw Nurse With Wound into the mix, too. The Banjo Draggers have a penchant for exposing the beauty in dissonant washes of distortion, samples, tinkling toy pianos, plaintive guitars, etc, and to their credit, they do it with invention and style. The results are not always pleasing, but then this stuff is as informed by industrial horror as shoegaze bliss. The Slate Pipe Banjo Draggers conjure wailing walls of distortion that invoke fearful cringes and hypnotic lulls, often at the same time. 7/10 -- Lee Jackson (27 June, 2006). Foxy Digitalis
