Review of Flowerday “Snuff Victim” CS

5 January 2011 3,831 views No Comment

From the one true dead angel – http://theonetruedeadangel.blogspot.com/2009_01_01_archive.html

This is what we call noise with no socially redeeming value — in other words, the good stuff. What you get is thirty minutes of efx-pedal obscenity like the audio equivalent of blood boiling in your veins, a non-stop cascade of virulent sonic filth heavy on the crunchy avalanche sound and brimming over with brutal angst. About as subtle as beating someone to death with sticks and every bit as satisfying, the two pieces are different in execution but equally ugly in their intent; the one on the A-side is big on crunchy, chaotic violence, while the track on the flip side is more of a cranked-up hiss ‘n screech affair with the crunchiness buried somewhere underneath. The sordid quality of the noise tracks is matched perfectly by the moderately rude cover art, including an inner picture clearly paying homage to the legendary poster for the infamous 70s expliotation film SNUFF (“The film that could only be made in South America… where life is CHEAP!”). Of the two tracks, the B-side is my favorite — it’s a tad more monochromatic, but severely more headache-inducing and single-minded in its blind, stupid screech-fury. Great sounds; bonus points for the simple but swell artwork.

From Ruido Horrible:

Flowerday es el proyecto del misterioso R.E. Fontainebleau y “Snuff Victim” es su debut. Con dos cortes del más puro ruido dinámico, los treinta minutos que componen la cinta se sienten como eternos viajes a través de texturas de densidades nada amistosas. El plano central lo ocupa una cortina de distorsión sofocante, imposible de desentrañar. Hacia el fondo van complejas conjugaciones de efectos retorciéndose de manera recalcitrante. El total es una absoluta pared de ruido. Totalmente imposible de ignorar.

Este trabajo viene duplicado en efectivísimas cintas de cromo contenidas en cassettes amarillos con impresiones de alta calidad. Arte totalmente old-school, con fotocopias impresas sobre papel también amarillo. La referencia a un crimen ocurrido recientemente en Sudáfrica le da el clásico complemento de perversión y mal gusto. Nada más no dejen esto en cualquier lado. Podrían pensar mal de ustedes. Absolutamente perfecta presentación, por cierto. (S.S.)

Flowerday is the mysterious project R.E. Fontainebleau and “Snuff Victim” is his debut. With two cuts of pure dynamic noise, the thirty minutes that make the film feel like eternal travel through unfriendly density textures. The central level is occupied by a wall of distortion suffocating, impossible to disentangle. Towards the bottom are complex conjugates so recalcitrant twisting effects. The total is an absolute wall of noise. Completely impossible to ignore.

This work has doubled in efectivísimas tapes contained chromium yellow cassettes with high-quality prints. Totally old-school art, with copies also printed on yellow paper. The reference to a crime occurred recently in South Africa gives the classic complement of perversion and bad taste. Just do not leave it anywhere. They might think badly of you. Absolutely perfect presentation, indeed. (S.S.)
