Live At Browns

Emerging from the shadows of Siltbreez HQ as hench and ready to rumble as the sunstroked arachnids that have started appearing in our house over the last few days, this blazing live doc of Vertical Slit straps the perpetually idle imagination of no-gig land to a rocket of debased, primitiv psychedelia that corrodes and combusts into clouds of metallic waste and celestial soot before our very ears!

Ever/Never’s “Heavy Action” battle-pack from last year served as an untouchable retrospective on the ever-illlusive, dark, damaged genius of frontman Jim Shepard, holding a candle to both the mystical, Nicodemus-esque acoustic fragilities of his solo work (Folk City Aztec Drama series ++) as well as live and studio accounts of him leading the midwest militias of V3 and Vertical Slit, outfits that’s  visionary grit bare comparison to NONE…one, or two, viable, romantic comparisons to The Fall being the only thing that’s ever really stuck.

Rough, GLOWING like a dive bar overflowing with radioactive gravel, Live At Browns swarms with hydra-headed guitar, deadly feedback-alchemy and the fluid, progressive song structure from the opening rendition of the almighty cyborg ceremony, “Metal or Meat?” (which we’ve convinced ourselves is Shepard’s “Cortez The Killer”?!) into a pair of fire-breathing Be-Bop Deluxe covers, all the way to the closing, tunnelling thunder of “Lesson in Logic”.

Incredible bookmark in the myth of the ‘Slit, HIGHLY recommended. **
