Artist: SPACE CACTUS
Title: 2001: A Space Cactus
Label: Ultra Eczema
"a puddle of gross sound poetry, ran thru some mentally ill reel tape machines more then once, then re worked again and again and again and again", is how you could describe the first SPACE_CACTUS lp in their 20 years existence! when i sent the master of this recording to the pressing plant, the people there asked "is it possible u sent us the wrong audio file, we can only here a voice soundcheck".
SPACE_CACTUS on this record is the infamous BOBBY COLOMBO (who, you could say, is the overall co-ordinator of space_cactus in general) together with cacti and hat collector, instrument inventor, and happy space maker CASSIS CORNUTA. though for every project SPACE_CACTUS has different line ups.
this lp is different then their usual massive analog synth set up, only voices, prepared voice and reel tape machines are used for this recording.
over the past 20 years they have rarely played live, only choose specific occasions for live shows, such as the "30 seconds of spacecactus" at factor 44, or soundworks for exhibtions. they have mainly focused on recording radioplays, jingles, film soundtracks, etc., one could sort of compare space_cactus with the bbc workshop, though S_C is more raw, satirical and brutal!
this lp is limited to 150 copies (8 copies luxery edition, the rest numbered and stamped to 142 copies) and comes in a fold open double sided silkscreened coverdesign by dennis tyfus." - Ultra Eczema
