sax & violence

I don't know about you but I'm loving the newest collection of Phantom Slasher tracks on Noid (sadly only available on CD), 'Key to the Tripod' is home to a bunch of top edity/Disco tracks, some of which are culled from their '08 vinyl releases ('Nicoteen', 'Bethlehem', 'Blow Me Slow', 'Skullvolley' (though here it's called 'Le Cock Noir') etc), others are new to these ears, but i'd say it's an essential buy if you're looking for a bunch of proper Idjut Boys stuff. I guess I am a big sucker for their sound and that's just not going to change. There are lots of recognisable bits put through the echo heavy idjut machine, even Spandau Ballet ('Noid Life') and I'm pretty sure I heard, amongst others, Warp 9's classic 'Nunk' being fiddled & filtered within an inch of its life on 'Tripod'. The album is still available in most stores, but do not expect them to re-press it when they sold out, it doesn't seem to be Noid or the Idjut's style. Here's my current favorite...
