Dressed in Wires - "The Big Black Cock of Death EP"
(Distraction Records 2006, DIST4)

Uploaded to Aural Innovations June 2006

Well, it appears that the man who calls himself Simondo Topless has a thing with making music that will annoy most people and enthral the rest! This is released as a 12" picture disc and has 5 tracks with very strange and controversial names like Hiroshima was a Shithole Anyway and Proposed Theme Tune #4 "Let's Hunt and Kill Billy Ray Cyrus". The 12" opens with The Breeders, which is some Coil meets Nine Inch Nails type thing and quite cool. The whole production is very raw like the old industrial stuff of the early 80's, not the clean stuff. Proposed Theme Tune #4 is something quite different with strange music and a guy saying "Something saved your Pecker, suck it" looped over and over. Strange. The last track on side A is That Rarest of Beasts; Hay Parabola, Crack Chikin/Nex Nine Times for Sunshine, a sort of twisted hip hop thing with young black kids saying nasty shit. Hiroshima Was A Shithole begins with a huge amount of noise that immediately makes you go to the volume knob as a low bass just about blows out your windows! It evolves into Mr.Topless having a little drum battle on his laptop and going completely mad until a sort of techno bass kicks in and the sound intensity increases and then the listener dies. This track lasts for 13 minutes. The last track, Blood Touching Glass, makes you quite sure he is trying to destroy your hearing. Phew...
