Create Disturbance In Your Mind

Invaluable, skull-perforating 2CD compilation scooping up lost trax from secretive London soundboys/shut-ins Midnight Mines - purveyors, in their own words, of “improv attacked with a primitive garage band mentality and a love of the endless prism of the JA version excursion”. Create Disturbance In Your Mind adds a clutch of previously unreleased cuts to all the music from their first three cassettes, originally issued in tiny quantities on their Mystery Plane private press and now much sought-after: Dancehall Style (2013), Insect Doom (2014) and Mother’s Mod Lament (2016). They adroitly apply dubwise space-juju/sci-fry to unvarnished, distortion-strafed, bonehead r’n’r ultraviolence, with howling wracked guitars and bin-lid-clatter drums foregrounded, like On-U duffing up Brainbombs or something (bear with me!). There’s introspection too, something of a classic NZ loner/zoner vibe - hence links to the current Xpressway/Corpus Hermeticum-fetishing Gothenburg scene (I Dischi Del Barone released last year’s ‘Stations’ 7”) and the fact that this compilation comes courtesy of Auckland’s own impeccable Independent Woman label, which has provided a home for tapes, CD-Rs and lathes from such estimable kiwi fruitcake-visionaries as Alastair Galbraith, CJA, Roy Montgomery, Maxine Funke, and Brian Cook. It’s safe to say there’s nowt else out there in 2019 that sounds quite like this, nothing so radgy, ecstatic, combustible, crazed, committed, extreme, and still, you know, GROUNDED and demonstrably, objectively GOOD. Unplug thyself from the fucking matrix and fill yer boots - believe you me, this set will restore your faith in the underground.
