"Smegma man, fucking Smegma. They started the whole damn thing. Sure there was Lee Rocky & some soundeffects 78s that set the crew in motion but screw it.. you wouldnt be blasting "The Beast" or any "weird handdrawn lp" with rotten ears if it wasnt for this truly motley crew. In high school my sweet momma would give me ten bones a week for lunch, come Monday by noon that shit was blown at the local rec shop. When I only had a couple of raggedy bux left from gripping Zorlac stickers, the only option was the dollar bin at the store. It was there that John Bender, Haystacks Balboa, Nik Reicnek, & Peter Catham lps blew open my teen mind to the netherworlds. Among the giants was this homemade wreckord by Ju Suk Reet Meat. Looked amazing.. had no idea. Threw it on for nearly every day since. Mutant loops, improv from alien swamp prom & deviant horrible ideas. Changed my life. Just what a young mind needed to replace the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Found out later it was from the Smegma camp, a strange unknown mystery troupe from Portland. No photos ever... just a numbling clip on RRR comp video gave me & Dilloway a tunnel view into the spirtual mecca that would the Smegma klan. Before the first Wolf jaunt out west we dropped them a postcard saying it would be good to meet. Soon it mangled into a recording session. We would be so honored. The day came. The Smegma house, totally pink, queued us in to rainy green Portland. We knocked. A femme voice said through the door, "use the bell". Nate pushed it and out came a gargled electronic siren. The door opened, Rock n Roll Jackie, 5 foot tall, grinning & long beatiful grey hair. We all fell in love. Soon after we meet Ju Suk & one by one slowly met all the Smegmas in one of the strangest nights ever. Burned Mind, Meltzer, Stan, Amazon Bambi, others. All weird as hell, checking us as much as us checking them. Yep, this is what we wanted to be with the rest of our lives... the Mich crew had never been so inspired & moved this unholy blending of mutant minds... So we jammed. It was fucking amazing. Here are the results. Every year we are going to see them & hang like the best friend weirdo family. A total pilgrimage. Nate & I once got so blasted from Portland cloud we projected that Smegma has always existed, ever since the beginning of time. Someone will carry it on... might be this dude in Yspi who has no face. Really/ no nose, barely a mouth, always has a broken arm or something.. smells like shit. Dude is totally in Smegma. Fucking life rules." - John Olson, Wolf Eyes.

Artist: WOLF EYES & SMEGMA
Title: The Beast
Format: CD
Label: Destijl
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
" ***NOW AVAILABLE ON CD!!! Intergenerational discomfort rock performed together by two free-sound conglomerates-the sprawling Portland, Oregon-based LAFMS progenitors SMEGMA, and the more compact WOLF EYES. With cover art depicting crop circles, alien grave rubbings and cryptographs, and group portrait inside resembling a family reunion snapshot you might find at a thrift store, The Beast merges RICHARD MELTZERs nasal meander, reptilian pulsations, exploratory tweakadelica, outsider improv, toys, devices, and electronic noises. Proof that old weird America is far from obsolete and more than capable of frying the fiendly skies."
