Fecalove/Cris Ex - Ass + Mouth [Turgid Animal Records - 2008]This ltd tour Split brings together Italian Noise Pervert Fecalove with fellow Italian electro Acoustic and noise maker Cris Ex. And much like the recent Hoor Paar Kraat split this is a rewarding and searing ride.
First up we have a quite lengthy and shifting track 15 minute track from Fecalove entitled Beauty of The Anus. It opens with a nice sinister boiling drone before cracking Open into ripping and roaring noise textures and piercing feedback wines with traces yells and shouts. The rest of the track nicely seesawing and shifting between almost rhythmical deep static roars and hits, piercing feedback needles, amped up and grimy drones with vocal rants and some quite atmospheric yet sickly atmospherics. Though vocal elements are present here- this is much more a shifting noise track than some of Fealove's more Power electronic work.
Next we have two five minute Cris ex tracks. First-up we have Movement 01 which seesaws between demented piled up male screams/ yells with boiling noise power and weird cut up vomiting and gurgling vocal cut-ups with eerier crackled airs. Then lastly we have Movement 02 which starts off damn creepy with distant growls before noisily driving into more strange vocal cut-up elements- this track been a little more quirky and almost musically than the first track and it also drifts into crackled ambinent type vibe towards the end
Another highly consistent track from Fecalove showing him filling a long form piece very nicely and my first taster of Cris ex strange, violent and atmospheric noise worlds. Really worth hunting down a copy if you can.Roger Batty
