The High Confessions - Turning Lead Into Gold With The High Confessions
Relapse gets points for this one, a departure from their standard fare, a post-punk death rock drive across three decades of underground music passing milestones of noise, drone, industrial, and general post rock art damage along the way. Which, upon checking the roster of creatively restless personnel on this album maybe shouldn't be too great a surprise.
Steve Shelley - Sonic Youth, Crucifucks, Two Dollar Guitar, Ciccone Youth, Lee Ranaldo and The Dust, Wylde Ratttz, and Dim Stars (among millions more)
Chris Connelly - Ministry, Revolting Cocks, Pigface, Acid Horse, Murder Inc., The Bells, The Damage Manual (also among millions more)
Sanford Parker - Minsk, Buried At Sea, Nachtmystium, Twilight, Corrections House, Circle Of Animals, Behold! The Living Corpse (again, among millions more)
Jeremy Lemos - White/Light, White/Lichens, and Acteurs
Dallas Thomas - Pelican, Asschapel, and The Swan King
Essential mental sprawl.
