P-ORRIDGE & Z'EV: DIRECTION OV TRAVEL
CD: Cold Spring Records CSR30CD
I think Genesis’s best days have long since gone, I must admit I
quite liked this album.
On the Cold Spring
label, it is well produced and supplied with a 20-page booklet. This contains
2 pages of information on the recording and the rest of the space is taken
up by info about trance states (If you’re into this pretentious
nonsense it makes great reading. I’m not and therefore found it
a pile of old crap).
This is a nice minimal dark ambient album with the sounds generated with
tribal acoustic instruments. There are elements of drone here reminiscent
of early Thomas Köner
work (although Köner
used gong samples instead of bell samples to generate most of his tones).
It is the best material I have heard from Mr. P-Orridge for some time
now and would make a great stocking filler for a disturbed child this
