Album Review
Lawrence Of A Labia
Reviewed 2006-10-05
Experimental, but in many different flavors. There is minimal looping in a classical way, desolate psych noise/ambience, pure noise, noise clutter, and cheesy Residents rock with singing. Picks 2,6,8,9. But you might find what you like in the others...FCC 4 "shit".

*1-(7:41) Death knells on the lowest octave of piano. noodling jazz chords on elec. guitar with distortion. More noise creeps in 1/2way. Guitar gets more rock distorto.
***2-(12:14) Middle Eastern flute, zither? loop, soft kick drum thump go in and out of phase. soft ambient noise. Beautiful, dreamy, fairly quiet throughout.
3-(4:22) 1st min. shrieking noise a la Merzbow. Keyboard starts noodling chords in addition. Last minute quiet buzzes.
4-(2:55) Anti-fascist/political sing-a-long rock a la Residents. Worth a listen if at most once. FCC "shit"
5-(3:24) Drunken bar sax, poking on a piano, elec. bass. a cluttered mess. amateur, retarded ralph carney on drugs.
**6-(18:09) Minimalist, fast gentle stuttering synth, lonesome elec. guitar. Ebbs and flows.
7-(4:37) sequenced beat. sparsely amateur with rubberband, asian inspired elec. keyboard playing
the pitch modulator.
*8-(8:51) Cousin to 5, much more consistent and affecting tho. Darker feel. Waitsian garbage can percussion.
***9-(1:34) Haunting, blowing winds, psychedelic.
