TwoDeadSluts OneGoodFuck/Cock E.S.P. – Split C4
The world is moving fast. Faster and faster every day. Each friend added to my stupid Facebook page just makes the endless spewing of information wash by like water flowing through a breaking levee, flooding more and more with with each opening fissure. Is information cheaper today then it ever has been? Or are we actually valuing it more by spending more time mulling over it, archiving it, and finding new ways to present the same old shit.
These questions are heightened by this fantastic little 4 minute cassette I have here. Yes, 4 MINUTES. Four minutes of pure depravity of course. So, does this mean that these sounds are just so fucking worthless that the artists only needed to record 2 minutes each to get their point across? Or should this diamond in the rough be treasured for every second because of its intensity and value? Is this a case of information overload or information to be valued?
The infamous TwoDeadSluts OneGoodFuck kicks off their track “Red and Brown” with a heartfelt piano melody then shoves the keys in your ass with no transition to a raw power electronics assualt. The track is very well layered with never ending screaming and a weird choir melody that is somehow also harsh as hell in the background. I’m really digging how just totally insane this is and think that it does well to portray the total chaos that is their live set.
Cock E.S.P. is an act whose performances rival that of the sluts. Fortunately their track “Masshole” does as well, and it is of course exactly what I was expecting. Harsh noise of the purest form. There is no musical elements to this whatsoever, it’s just a strait-up noise blast with various horribly harsh sounds, metallic shuffling, things rubbing together, screaming, and feedback.
So in the end my questions still remain unanswered. In two minutes it feels like this tape is more of an epilectic seizure than an actual release made to listen to on a stereo. It’s a fucking heart attack wrapped in plastic. If information could kill, this will be your demise.
