Artist: STUMPS, THE
Title: The Black Wood
Format: CD
Label: Last Visible Dog
Country: US
Price: $12.50
"The Stumps are a New Zealand based noise-rock trio made up of members Antony Milton (Pseudoarcana, The Nether Dawn, Mrtyu, etc), James Kirk (Sandoz Lab Technicians, Black Boned Angel, Gate, etc), and Stephen Clover (Palindrone, seht). Formed in Wellington in 2003, the group is known for its noisy guitar soundscapes and improvisational take on psychedelic rock music. Most often, Clover plays bass, Milton sings and plays electric guitar, and Kirk plays drums, though the group are known to expand their instrumental palette using synthesizers, field recordings, electronics, and guest musicians. With a laundry list of individual accomplishments preceding them, The Stumps bring high expectations. Theyve been compared to such seminal acts as The Dead C, Guru Guru, Acid Mothers Temple, Fushitusha, Les Rallizes Denudes, Sun Ra and the Velvet Underground, but these Kiwis have their own twist in their psychedelic cosmic explorations. They are robust and powerful; an exciting and often overwhelming listening experience. Itll burn out your eardrums and douse the flames in hot wax. But fear not, within these methodic blasts are moments of icy calm. Underneath all this chaos is a relaxed thread, keeping some semblance of order intact." - Last Visible Dog.

Artist: STUMPS, THE
Title: Split Fleet Dodge
Format: LP
Label: Palindrone Recordings
Country: New Zealand
Price: $15.00
"The Stumps are an improvising psych/noise/rock band from Wellington, New Zealand. They have been described as a NZ underground super-group by one writer; a power-trio by others. Although no one is completely sure what these terms actually mean, what is certain is that The Stumps bring a wealth of talent and experience, and a certain heavyweight clout, with them to the table. The core lineup of The Stumps features Antony Milton (A.M., Mytyu!, Nether Dawn, PseudoArcana label, etc), Stephen Clover (Seht), and James Kirk (Sandoz Lab Technicians, Gate, Black Boned Angel, etc). The band also regularly collaborates with other improvising musicians; on Split Fleet Dodge the trio team up on one side of the LP with Campbell Kneale (Birchville Cat Motel, Black Bones Angel) on keyboards and electronics. The LP is an edition of 300 copies." - Palindrone Recordings.
