Regard Us Sadly - Self Titled [Phage Tapes - 2010]Regarding Us Sadly is a new, tense and detailed static texturing/ static based HNW project that brings together J Cadle (from Foul, ...Massacre & Oasis Of Fear) and the perverse mind behind Static texturing based project I Am Slut. This self titled c20 is the first release from this project.
The tape offers up two side long and untitled ten minute tracks that are built around locked, yet detailed static texturing that has a tense and agitated feel about it. Each track or side of tape is fairly similar in itís lay-out and nervy attack being built around interlocking yet different shaped and textured static. With-in each track we have layers of: jittering, hacking, scraping, churning and judders of static tone. Each side of tape keeps you pinned and tautly set into itís locked and layered walls of static torture.
The tapes sleve is art printed black and white on thincard. It features on the front cover a picture of a person with their head in their hands, and inside is a series of black and white lines which of course nicely follow the repetitive, but patterned texture of the noise inside. So this is a tense and nervy opening release from this pair which promises more edgy static texturing for the future.Roger Batty
