hototogisu / burning star core “volume one” compact disc
|finally, back in stock !!|
october 2006 release; a massive whir of krautrock-inspired doom-drones & psychedelic noise from the hototogisu duo and the full trio lineup of burning star core. a surprisingly varied/dynamic set, encompassing passages that sound not unlike amon düül, closely followed by ones that sound like a lightning bolt bootleg... hell, the last piece even sounds like the lost billy bang/david tudor mind-meld we’ve all been dreaming about...
of the recent invasion of hototo/bxc-related gelt, i’m feeling this one the most... highly recommended.

five tracks, totalling approximately fifty minutes. packed into the small horrible room (rip) inside the cedar house (rip) down in lexington ky (still alive), individuals huddled in every corner, painting the room in colored cables, glossy wood and metal boxes. deafness and disorientation was administered through the afternoon on into the night. summoning over two hours of recorded tape, it was decided to cut the baby in half for adoption between two imprints. heavy blossom ferried away the long thick sides of torso, and dronedisco seized the hooves, antlers, and jaw. the disc starts off with an appropriate invocation; from there punches blindly through one stone cloud after another, coughs and gasps from exhaustion, stumbles and lies motionless. the ritual concludes with a moment of naked acoustic/instinctual spasm, then a cut-off of
originally released in a very small quantity on cd-r as merchandise during various us and uk spring tours, the dronedisco half of these sessions has been edited and resequenced for this release in the autumn. the pro-pressed disc comes in a black polycase with black and white inserts and a special randomly-selected 1" button (there are five button variations in all).
