is the best policy. No-one likes a bullshitter. Tell the truth. The whole
truth. Nothing but the truth. People will respect you in the end no matter
what you‚ve done. Mask of the Slave records know this. They are
100% truth merchants. Their statement found on the press release sent
in with this release bares this out. They wrote: "Warning: the constant
noise frays the nerves!", and by fuck they weren't telling porkies.
Richard Ramirez has established himself through his many projects as an
agent provocateur. A man obsessed with taking electronic noise to the
higher incomprehensible levels. A zealot who explores the possibilities
of aural torture then puts into practice everything he's learnt. A man
you don't fuck with. Not unless you want your body and mind fucked beyond
all recognition. "DeProgramming Pornographers" is a three track
42 minutes release that goes way, way beyond what can be constituted as
music. This is sheer hell for ears, body and brain. A none stop attack
of electronic torture that threatens to dismantle the self cell by individual
cell. Think back to the worst pain you‚ve ever physically suffered.
Then quadruple it. That is what "DeProgramming Pornographers"
sounds like. A no nonsense, no frills, no holds barred barrage of noise.
Nothing more. Nothing less. So unrelenting is this release that I couldn‚t
listen to it anymore. I played it four times on the trot and had to surrender.
Giving in to music was never in the plan. The white flag was raised and
I went and laid down. My head thumped and ached but the silence descending
was a merciful release. There are just some things an old reviewer shouldn't
be subjected to.
Which for fans of Richard Ramirez is exactly what they want and expect.
For them "DeProgramming Pornographers" will be right up their
street. A release to brag to friends about. A release that proves their
tolerance levels are above everyone else's. For they are the hardcore.
The ones who know no limits. This 120 copies only CDR is for them and
them alone. They are welcome to it. I was once like them. I was there
at the start of the whole extreme electronics scene. Age though has crept
up on me and I can't take it anymore like I used to. I've been there.
Heard that. But no more. Best let the youngsters have their day. At least
I was forewarned what to expect by Mask of the Slave records. For that
they have my thanks.
