I feel that B-side perhaps obliterates better? Brutalica offers the more cut-up approach, where sounds abruptly change from one to another, which is very well done, but after all I do prefer:PAIN JERK "Loud Acoustics For Nude Mobile" tape2 long tracks. A-side being utmost killer harsh noise in the finest tradition of early 90's Japanese pedal orgy. Fierce Merzbow'ish wah-wah sweeps, heavy duty bass rumbles, crispy high end. Sounds moves relatively quick pace, yet not really cut & paste method, but natural flow like live set. B-side seems little less heavy, more quick loops, bubbling filtter sounds, etc. It offers less brutality but no less of sonic substance in general.

No real reason why, and no idea how it got there. Been just moving it around, but not actually taken it where it belongs, until now. And C-10 is quick to give listen. One guy with electronics, one guy vocals. 1st side is little bit weak, but things improve by the end of b-side. One could think of Slogun, Brethren and such american acts, where lyrics are the key focus. Shallow Waters remains behind those acts with lacking the sheer violence of Slogun and more complex & original solutions of Brethren. Noise is relatively well done, but the clean shouted voice going through Crass type of endless lyrics, start to lose its impact when approach is nothing but shouting. It's decent tape, but also would make one wonder, is there is such a strong message intended to deliver, why vocal approach is more of the crust-punk and less of and political speech? One should take a look into politics of the past, where good spokesmen could lift the speech into utmost rage even without backing noise.

This is like heinous crime towards noise! 30 minutes is such a dull listening experience, one wonders how it can be? Werewolf Jerusalem at its best, is obviously one of leading names of the genre. Sewer Election has only few misses among strong line of hits. But THIS? What the fuck is this? A-side titled singular is like test how far joke can go. stupid crackling one dimensional noise that sounds simply bad. On the beginning on B-side, called Linear, you feel yeah, it is probably a concept music, and indeed little improvement with sound, but soon to be watered down to utmost failure. It's hard to even imagine how to be able to make so lame noise, so I guess it must be intentional. Not looking good either.
Quote from: Max on November 27, 2010, 01:20:41 PMwell, i actually like it a lot! there's just something in that dull crackle that tickles my nerves the right way. it's definitely stupid and one dimensional noise. a joke? maybe to an extent. there's a "fuck you" attitude to this tape (my own assumption, of course), a bit like with Kasettemusik - which too raised a lot of negative response when released and which i also like.
