One glorious hour of insanity from our friends at Fag Tapes, featuring the harsh chaos of SICK LLAMA, demented no-fi garage damage from TY VEK, a total assault from FULL MEAT JACKET, and two acts I'd never heard of (UNCONCERTED and CYGNUS) who both offer up sounds that blew my mind. CYGNUS sound as if they have been lifted from the soundtrack of a futuristic avant Japanese horror film, and UNCONCERTED combine simple surf/garage and electronic noise with fantastic results. Five artists who are each doing something interesting, if not entirely new, and the hour will whisk you away into a world of sound. Fag Tapes (and SICK LLAMA, I believe) is the brainchild of audio/visual artist Heath Moerland, and with over 200 releases under his belt, he shows no signs of slowing down. Great stuff, but insanely limited, so good luck.
