Haha! Forgotten how entertaining the man can be. Loving all this!


I hate to be negative but im really not feeling any of this extreme lo-fi stuff. to me it all sounds very amateur and poorly executed. I know I know it cope so we're all supposed to eat it all up but really..? is this the best the man can do after 30 odd years in the studio and on tour? or is making the best music he can not part of the equation?
Sorry I still like the guy but ya got to admit its a long way from peggy suicide or even 20 mothers and I mean that it the worst of ways.



That said, to me, a number of these tracks do actually remind me of some of the more idiosyncratic b-sides from the Peggy Suicide era (don't forget we got Bagged Out Ken, Straw Dogs and many a dance remix around this point). The Daemon, in particular could even be a mid-80s b-side and if Black Forest of Dean had turned up on the Try, Try, Try EP, I don't think we'd have batted an eye-lid.
