Russolo's Pet Project - It's Clobberin' Time!

And now it's time to bring out the fuzz... Russolo's Pet Project is the experimental side project of Northern Ireland's underground meisters of feedback,
SUPER-8. With ample material to download from the Russolo's Pet Project space on the web, it is time to indulge in the mix of material, all curiously themed with choice Marvel & DC Comics Super Hero characters. What do we make of it?


Choice material on offer include Freedom Girl (Catwoman), taking shape as a dreamesque ballad in the mould of the Velvet Underground, while Wrong (The Joker) takes on the best of the Jesus & Mary Chain circa 1991. Elsewhere, in Ben Grimm we have what Death In Vegas might come up with if they remixed a few Velvet Underground out-takes, where the backbone runs in the vein of the claustrophobic dystopia of late 90s, but the melody runs delicate and free as VU 60s. Live Wire Live Moment, another track of note, is Primal Scream putting structure to the dysfunctional Lazycame territory of William Reid. All in all, the demo material, some more recent than others, is well worth the indulgence. 8/10.
