A double album released in collaboration with the UK's PETA organisation, to whom a donation of £1.00 from each sale will be made. Three recordings from December 2005 and January 2006 on each disc. "F.I.D.' (Fur Is Dead) follows the lead of the recent 'Minazo Vol. 1', the tracks are coated in defined melodies and ultra noisy denser textured ambience, the use of guitar feedback taken to a new sculptured level.
Each track here is very different, not staying in one set of sounds, which makes it a wonderfully balanced double album, standing as one of his best releases of this year.
Disk one opens up with 'Exteriorization?@ No.1.', which kicks in with a looped melody under a mound of feedback, then burn and crashing sounds are added, that form into this wonderfully wonky melody full of strange nostalgia, it moves deeper into the mix like a snake slipping off into the grass, as banks of static pound, but all the time the track returns to the melodic twists. Later on, he drops in a looped washed out fairground like melody, as the sounds build; he paints amazing distorted, yet memorable sound patterns. 'Forest of Kelp' is the next track and the longest here at 21 minutes- sounding just as the title suggest some vast churning forest of sound, full of dry hissings, seething banks of droning static, fazer like pulses, but all the time keeping a background of oppressive tempered static.
At about the half way mark this great eastern type feedback guitar pattern swirls into view, like a twisted snake charmers songs, it‚s both enchanting and tinged with great sadness. The track also has a slight spacey vibe recalling elements of 1997‚s 'Space Metalizer', as it drifts into tight moog-like twirls and twists of sound. Really one of his most amazing pieces of work, transcending noise and music, audio painting of the highest form. Disk One ends with 'Seitaka' , full of tight bassy punches of looped beat static, distortion.......
