Sissy Spacek - Freaked With Jet [Gilgongo Records - 2011]

“Freaked With Jet” finds US noise project Sissy Spacek  at their most pummelling, repetitive & unforgiving. This  group originally started off as the grind core meets rapid noise cut-up project, but over it's 10 years existence they’ve dabbled with & abused: avant jazz noise, electro acoustics, sinister sound tracking elements  & all manner of often rapid noise fed matter.

The album finds the project as a three piece of : Charlie Mumma on drums, John Wiese on electronics, and Corydon Ronnau on vocals. It features a total of 75 tracks, and it was recorded in 2008. The album conists of six 7 inches that are now long out of print, but really you wouldn’t think this as much of the album is very repetitive & samey in a good ‘n’ monotonousness manner- the albums really like repeatedly banging your head against a wall & getting some sort of buzz from doing so.

Basically each track here ranges from 5 to 35 seconds a piece, with just two tracks hitting near or just over the minute mark. For the first 54 or so tracks it’s all about locked & repetitive battering hardcore drum attacks that are seared by fast ‘n’ ear melting noise attacks, and topped off with unchanging raging mad-man hardcore shouts. These tracks are fairly inter-changeable & samey in there feel, yet it works in its almost stuck noised up grind core way.  Track 55 is the longest track here at 1 minute and five seconds, and this finds the three piece vary the pace for more stop/ start battering drum pummelling’s , snaking noise textures/spurts & vocal barks. Then after this  track we're returned to the seconds long tracks once more; and these are once again  damn punishing ‘n’ pummelling through the noise textures seems slightly more sliding, grating and less precise in there feel which gives a great feeling  like almost the tracks are split ‘n’ ripping at their seams.

So  here we have an very uncompromising & repetitive take on noised ripped grind core. Certainly this it’s not for every one, and those  who are after the projects more jazzy & moody edges need not apply- but if you dig Sissy Spacek   in battering & unrelenting noise/grind core mood this is well worth your time.
