Kenji Siratori and Torturing Nurse – “Mad Blockhead’s Tale”

Six collaborative tracks psychotically pace between two points on a threadbare rug– on one end, Siratori’s electronically-altered mutterings and exhortations; and at the other, blasts of glass-in-a-blender white noise artifacts. But what starts as a “versus” split minidisc ends as more of a collaboration, with increased give-and-take between all musicians. Crippled with severe monolingualism, I have no idea what Siratori is saying– but as a purely abstract noise release, “Mad Blockhead’s Tale” truly works. Bonus points for the somewhat retro cover art, which looks like a true crime paperback. Available from Roil Noise.
