Rag Time Grunge - s/t
(Hot Pipe Records 2003)
Uploaded to Aural Innovations: December 2003
It is really nice that there are people in the world who just make music for themselves and donít give a fuck if others like it or not, yet they still want you to hear it!!!! This is a project by Birmingham England musician, Andrew Loly. It is extreme low fi including drums made out of boxes. The 6 songs here are quite strange and intriguing. It is not pop, it is not grunge, it is not jazz, and it is not noise rock, but some bizarre mixture of all of these things. Some of it delivered in a punk rock manner but the music is more droning and chaotic. This is difficult stuff to describe and quite a special musical journey into Andrews own personal hell called the Birmingham music scene. I guess??
