Mrs Rice - Rice Corpse [Dual Plover Recordings - 2009]

Mrs Rice is the sonic clunking and noisy improv meeting of Australian Glass eater, manic ranter and noise maker Lucas  Abela with Chinese Pianist Li Zenghui(who normally plays Sax) and percussionist Yang Yang.

The album features six tracks which fall between two to twelve minute mark a picec; with each track being a demented and often violently da-da collusion of hammered to jaggedly tinkled piano abuse, amped up vocal bellows, whines, mad-man chatters and out breaths, Chocking feed-back clouds, the odd battering of drums and general manic cluttering and improv. The first few tracks really bang into you in a sadistic rewarding  manner giving one the feeling of manic glee and violent merriment- this is playful, bloody, face smashing and finger pulping noise improv that attacks you with rabid vigor. The problem comes with later tracks, when the trio seem to replay the same sonic terror tactics over and over again; you see this sort of thing should be short and sharp leaving you breathless and shaken. But instead by track four or five youfve become a little jaded and slightly bored; as therefs no real shift in pace, sound or attack- it just keeps hammering and hammering into you.

Certainly an interesting and violent take on improv with the three piece being an original and rabid pairing; itfs just a pity it couldnft have been shorter and shaper with the three piece adding more dramatic and varied shifts into their sound and attack.
