" Give my nerves a little workout,
____my flesh sonic uppers ;
I wanna sound like a busy signal
By day & night fillin' in the blanks. "
(from Vertical take-Off, part 1)
GR's Propel Tension On Polyester Base is a decisive effort in tape recording, 13 private tracks taken from the archives of an adventurous mind and forming a mysterious sound diary, a core part in the evolution of GR's style and a secretive work in progress highlighting an incessant appetite for putting a tentacular vision onto the recordable surface at hand.
Among the tracks presented here _ which were taped between 2008/2016 _ some are achieved in one blow with evident fulgurance, while some others are initiated early and completed years later in different spaces, non-similar phases, bringing to the sound textures some unfathomable provenance ; the material is relentlessly tracked down by following the natural path of self-autonomy over space & time.
" The featured material was taped non-uniformally,
various analog recorders and spaces were used
over a period of private stimulation. "
(GR mentions on the back cover)
The spectrum of styles & processes approached and developed by GR on those recordings is ultimately wide.
Free construct open rhythm, hear the dead snare at your heels, freer rock, hard kicking grooves & serpentine pulse shall scare the hell out of ultra moving asses in the rush, saturation, dangerous proto-punk, the most menacing monster-fuzz downtown, cosmic elektronische & psycho tape looping, abstract instrumentals, fingerpicking to the decadent, possessed vocals and wicked street-punk delivery, non-chordal guitar excess, reel to reel manipulations, a mastery of fixed sounds through the written & unwritten… — Propel tension on polyester base, tapes archives.
