Dustdevil & Crow

You can now listen to pretty much all of the latest album from Dustdevil & Crow on the Free Music Archive. Dustdevil, if you didn’t know, is Michael Duane of the no-wave DustDevils and numerous other projects – Atlantic Drone, some others. (he’s also youngmosstongue.blogspot.com … and knows pretty much everything there is to know about punk, post-punk and 1960s-1990s experimental music.)

Anyway, here’s “Moss

I see what you mean about Current 93, but it sounds much different. It sounds like some form of psychic agony concocted by John Fahey and Kenneth Anger (with a little Jandek?). Not that that's a bad thing cos I can't say I stopped listening to it. I'll be back there for more.

That's actually an interesting comparison, Fahey, and I'm assuming you mean the later, noiser stuff? And, of course, it's pretty much guaranteed to make a guitar player happy to be compared to Fahey, isn't it?

I always think of Michael as Sonny Sharrock meets Shin Jung Hyun ;^)
