The Null Device
I wandered down to Synæsthesia this afternoon, and picked up
Can't Stop It!
, the compilation of
Australian post-punk from between 1978 and 1982.
Some of the tracks on this CD are surprisingly recent sounding;
's How Low Can You Go
sounds like something off a recent Sadness Is In The Sky
's Love By Numbers
its sequencer riffs, sounds like it could have been put together a few
years ago (though this may be because of the 80s retro thing),
and the track by Equal Local
TB-303 circuitbender and marital sadomasochism advocate Robyn "Devilfish" Whittle among their lineup) sounds almost like one of those contemporary
free-jazz/laptop-glitch act. Though the CD also does have its moments of
sloppy, inchoate punk-rawk noise (The Slugfuckers' contribution comes to mind).
I also picked up the new album by Letraset, the more experimental side project of Minimum Chips. On first listen, it has some very nice ambient moments, including a track a little reminiscent of Radiohead's Treefingers. Though I haven't had a proper listen to it yet.
