The Psychic Paramount - "Live 2002: The Franco-Italian Tour"
(Public Guilt 2005, PG006)
Uploaded to Aural Innovations June 2006
The Psychic Paramount is a mostly improvised music group from the USA. The 8 tracks put forth on this digipack CD are taken from the bands French- Italian tour in 2002. This was previously released as a CD-R called Bewilderment and Illumination. The quality of the recordings is quite mixed but always intense and sometimes very noisy as they were all recorded to a cassette recorder with one microphone. The CD also includes an 8 minute super 8 film by Aran Tharp. I could not figure out how to watch it (mov.file) but I guess Quicktime will do it. This is amazingly intense stuff with a lot of dynamics in the noise, some of which could rip your head clean off if you are not careful. You have been warned!!!!!!!
