MAX KURT/Lord Shiznit (2009)
Recorded onto BR in trains across England, Wales & France between August and December 2008.
Gwilly Edmondez: SU10, TCM20DV, Ac. Guit. & one of those crap Stylophones they started flogging in entertainment outlets last year but has now been trashed. The dictaphone tape in track 21 features the alto sax of Karl D'Silva, as well as one instance of Nick Herbert's trademark yaffle.
What do you want now? I can't believe the levels you're prepared to accept of the almighty dupe. While standards in production rocketed inversely towards the dream-Platonic surface, Gwilly still found a crack that, like when he was three in the Welsh, luminous Welsh puddles of Ewenny, he took leave to pry. Where Anatomical Disseminator indulges impatience and haste, Lord Shiznit fires interruptions at the deadly continuities, accepting nothing but sweet fish.
The second MAX KURT album is dirtier than the first. Even where there are 'beats', they are far more manic. Where there are songs, they can embarrass the listener. Again, made for the internet (though hardcopies will be made available at live shows and selected outlets such as Newcastle's (UK) Alt Vinyl, this album was completed for (and is premièred on) UBUWEB.
