Thou had best be ready when the angry eelectric finger points to YOU! Fortunately, the 3 collaborators above stepped up to the challenged poking, resulting in each offering electric fingers of varying emotional levels ready to fist you in the ear. THUS SPAKE NURSE (& Xhol): The recipe began with our fearless leader, Steve Stapleton, cooking up some recordings & mixing in a few tablespoons of Xhol Caravan. He then sent this delicious sound casserole, one each, to Jim O'Rourke, Cyclobe & Irr.App.(Ext.) & asked that they bake said casseroles in their own sonic ovens. The 3 separate sound casseroles were then returned to the NWW kitchen where Chef Steve added just a dash of this & a pinch of that. Beta-lactam Ring now serves up these 3 piping hot dishes to you, the hungriest of hungry, hungry hippos.
Mute Bell Extinction Process: As the final finger in the fist, Irr.App(Ext.) de.emp.has.(ize) the musical aspect of the source material, instead punching it down to its more spacial, raw & cavernous aspects. The textural shifts are long & building. The fractured fallouts reduce everything to a quietly smoldering hollow...like your devastated heart!
