Lunch With Beardo

Lunch With Beardo

Surrealistic Picnic

FDH Records

This stuff is so bizarre it makes my parts turgid!

Made up of three sections (all entitled “Official Communications from the Planet Lunch”), these works start where Sun Ra left off –in fact, track 3 is subtitled “Space is the Plate”– and anyone who enjoys disembodied voices, strangled trumpets and random clicks and buzzes will eat this lunch up. Waves of electronics provide a bed for backwards moaning, processed guitars and loops. Fans of Olivia Tremor Control, Metal Machine Music and, generally, all things weird and wonderful will put this on endless repeat.

The rest of you, you’ll run screaming from the room. Such is art.
