|... two sets of live/in-situ face-slash from mr. lucas abela - both utilizing the same plate-glass / contact-mic / pedal-belt “instrument” he’s been honing over the past few years ... squawky (of course) & even bordering on sound-poetry (in spots) ...|
lp is a three-way tie (for last) between bob bellerue’s anarchymoon, george proctor’s turgid animal, and keg de souza’s all thumbs press ...

birthdays consists of two live sets by maverick amplified-glass player justice yeldham recorded during his & keg's recent tour of europe. if you've never heard of the guy you are in for a bloody treat. using concert-grade piano contact mics, he amplifies a sheet of glass and plays it with his mouth and face, processing it with pedals attached to his belt, usually barefooted. the results are unworldly, and hearing it you would never imagine what created it, something only an aussie could achieve. like careening assaults of insect spaceships, he transports the listener to other worlds of sound, ending most often in a crash of the glass upon his head. he survives, bloody but alive, never worse for wear in the morning.
side a was captured in marseille on the eve of justice's 35th birthday while side b was recorded on kegs birthday in porto. and to top off the birthday cheer keg also did the cover illustration as a gift for justice's birthday. mastered by the god-like rasheed of dubplates (berlin), the record has been collaboratively released in an edition of 600 copies across the world by anarchymoon recordings (north america), turgid animal (europe) & all thumbs press (australia).
