New York Ripper - Addiction [Bored Bear Recordings - 2012]

“Addiction” is the first in series of  twelve monthly 3 inch CDR releases that are to be put out through-out 2012 by Ireland's Bored Bear Recordings. Each release in this new series offers up a debut release from one of twelve new projects that are been put together by highly influential & respected Texas noise artist Richard Ramirez. 

The New York Ripper project of course take it’s name from the notorious, misogynistic, gory &  perverse 1982 Giallo movie directed by Italian gore maestro Lucio Fulci. The films plot revolves around a seedy & down-beat New York police detective who teams up with a college psychoanalyst to track down a vicious serial killer who is randomly stalking and killing various young women around  NYC.  The project brings together  Ramirez with fellow Texas noise artists Geoff Markoff whose be involved with projects such as Wasp Honeymoon, Viking Movement, L'Occhio Nel Labirinto. From evidence of the track on  offer here the project sits squarely  in the sleazed ‘n’ seared HNW box.

The single self titled titled track on offer here comes in at spot on the sixteen minute mark, and it finds the pair boiling up a nicely sleazy, opresseive & muffled mixture of  juddering & grating noise textures. The ‘walls’ pace sort of sits somewhere between slow to mid paced, and the pair layer out  three or four layers of grating ‘n’ juddering  noise in a oppressive & intense yet hazy & cruel map of tones. The ‘wall’ creates this almost grim kaleidoscopic tunnel of fixed walled noise, and brought to my mind a grey & murky journey down a long tunnel that’s slow shifting  & revolving with razors & knifes

So all told this  is a good ‘n’ sleazed opening release from this new series from Mr Ramirez & Bored Bear Recordings. So if you dig sleazy yet seared HNW this is well worth a look…this same project has a tape due out this spring, so I look forward to hearing that.
