Backwards Devil Music, Part 13
This recording, from about 1992, represents one of the first attempts by the Meat Beetles to create music without actually using any musical instruments. All sounds used here were either from cassette recordings of radio and TV broadcasts, or from vinyl records spun by hand on a turntable, all augmented by judicious use of electronic processing devices. This is a big hunk of noise, clocking in at just under 23 minutes. Don't listen to this in the dark! And be warned: There is some language (f-words and such) in this one that some may find offensive. Also, the sound quality on this one is a bit sketchy--lots of hiss--but that's the nature of the cassette beast.
