ROADSIDE PICNIC "EXERCISES IN LIVING" CDr (AOW 269)
Second AOW release from the UK's Roadside Picnic, this time turning its attentions to the self-help books and audio cassettes written and recorded by Dame Joan Collins. Across two shorter and distinctly different pieces, Collins' work is deconstructed, destroyed, and refashioned into both crushing blasts of dense, overloaded noise detritus and hypnotic, lulling, but ultimately disruptive sleep commands from Joan herself. A seriously different sound from Roadside Picnic's previous AOW release, illustrating another of the many sound facets of this challenging and creative project. Weird, psychedelic, crushing, and irreverent.
Packaged in a fold over cover in a clear plastic bag, in a limited edition of 15 hand-numbered copies. $7 ppd. in the United States, $20 rest of world.
