Artist: GLANDS OF EXTERNAL SECRETION/DECAER PINGA
Title: Tubular Bells
Format: LP
Label: Starlight Furniture Company
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"The album that launched Richard Bransons Virgin Records and is virtually synonymous with The Exorcist, Mike Oldfields Tubular Bells has been revisited by the composer himself over the years in hopes of rectifying problems that still trouble him to this day -- elastic timing, dodgy playing, poor edits, changes in tone, background tape noise. Needless to say, such defects are tools of the trade for countless modern recording artists, especially at the bottom of the food chain. In this no-instruments interpretation of Oldfields epic instrumental performed by Glands of External Secretion (side one) and Decaer Pinga (side two), deficiency is the cornerstone. By intentionally limiting themselves to prerecorded tapes, field recordings, electronic devices and effects, out-of-context musical passages, and anything else that did not require a musical instrument to be played -- both bands interpret their respective halves of this legendary opus with methods that seem to run counter to the spirit of the original, yet paradoxically force it to shine through" - Starlight Furniture Company.
