Craig Johnson: untitled tape

Craig Johnson: untitled tape

Originally released in an edition of 7 CDr’s under the title Flugelrad, this is a tape of brief improv sketches by Craig Johnson (aka Laserbeams of Boredom). While it includes that project’s mindblowing drumming, it also features drum machines and lots of circuitbent toy instruments, giving it kind of a playful, junky trash-art feel. The tracks with distorted drum machine beats particularly blow things out of proportion, and the bit with all the chiming crystal and chipmunk-y sounds? Too much. This guy just fries my brain and eats it for dinner, every single time.
