TERMINAL bOREDOM HAS REVIEWED THE TAPE

thanks TERMBO for listening and having an experience than later using words to describe sounds you heard on the tape. I like how you used the word "disorienting" to describe things, pretty far out stuff...plus i been listening to the Factorymen and Sockeye now and i didnt know them, i mean i had heard of Sockeye and now i've been tuning into their vast discography, it's pretty vast

thanks again here it is

I Know I'm An Alien "I Know I'm An Alien and I Want To Go Home Sometimes But then I Remember I Gotta Try and Understand You" cassette
The project name and release title, combined with some very wacky song titles had me thinking this might be a tough listen - a gimmick that would surely grow old after 16 songs. But it was actually a pretty good listen...a one-man project based out of the UK, by a man (alien?) calling himself Walter Weirdheadd. Very strange electronic experimentation with occasional guitar/bass, reminds me of the Factorymen project at times. But perhaps even a bit more disorienting. The "alien observing humanity" gag doesn't get old due to the fact that there are few vocals on the cassette - the vocals that are there are electronically distorted, and sometimes vastly overpower the rest of the track, sometimes the opposite. Tough to understand (even keeping an eye on the track titles), they mainly just make the whole affair more disorienting. More than anything, this tape reminded me of some of the obscure Sockeye side-projects...ones where they eschew their reliance on crude, absurd humor in favor of weirdness and social commentary. This guy's Bandcamp is worth checking out if you're a fan of this type of oddness. 50 physical copies made.(RR)

Review of Hobo Shaman on Gilded Gutter and new track from upcoming album

"Human’s imagining being aliens imagining to be humans has a proven track record of being a powerful thing …. Bowie and Sun Ra both established that when one is in charge of one’s own universe there’s room to concisely define parameters in order to communicate ideas.  I can’t tell if these 13 songs feel dysfunctional as a result of rebelling against or actually reflecting our everyday life in this city.  Could well be a bit of both.   I was drawn to this record because it so clearly gets this concept across; it conveys the sensation of having oneself mirrored back –part hilarity and part surprise.  With songs like ‘Hey Hi Tech Lover’, ‘Becoming Human’ and ‘Hare Hare Against Genetic Engineering’ I Know I’m An Alien captures both those things, the absurd side to being human and the shocking."

Review of Hobo Shaman on gilded Gutter....!

Also, a new track has been unveiled and it is a cover of the Beatles' masterpiece "Piggies", written by the amazing George Harrison. The lyrics are still as relevant today as in 1968. Maybe more so?
The new Album coming out very soon will be called Brain Terror (Forget Your Head) and will have two other versions of songs by David Bowie and Roky Erickson.
