When I first heard this, I had to check that this was actually a Drone Records release, because this is not really what you could call drone music, nor what I have come to expect for the Drone Records 7” series.

Both sides of the vinyl follow an almost identical approach with a rather chaotic experimental industrial sound. The tracks appear to be loosely constructed with what sounds like a lot of improvised distortion & modulated frequencies. Underscoring these main focal elements is an underbelly of muffled bass textures, where all the while female voice recites something entirely indecipherable in the background (the promo blurb indicates it is: “autobiographic text from Klaus Kinski, the legendary 'daemonic' actor, as an inspiration, 'to transform his greed for life musically'”).

To keep the review short and sharp, to my mind this release is far too noisy & messy to qualify for a drone description & with the loose, experimental, improvised commotion that has been created, it doesn’t really appeal to me. Better luck next time around perhaps?
