Some of you out there might be aware of those crazy Christians who make up the truly disorienting SoCal based band, Dry Rot. Their debut LP from last year, Philistine, was one of the most bizarre and disturbing full lengths to come out in a coons age, referencing everything from This Heat to the Minutemen to Void within a scant album side. Drew and Jordan from the band have a new -¢‚Ǩ-ìproject-¢‚Ǩ¬ù called Uranium Orchard, and the four song demo tape they just did up might rival their other band in sheer fuckedness alone. Theres pretty much no reference to Hardcore in the sound, but just like they do in Dry Rot, they glop together a bunch of sound references unconsciously that shouldnt stick together, but somehow do. A lot of it sounds like the takes on Captain Beefheart that came out of the UK in the late 70s (such as the fore mentioned This Heat), but then theres all these weird electronic surges going on in the background and spacey parts that sound like -¢‚Ǩ-ìAngel Rat-¢‚Ǩ¬ù era Voivod. Like I said before, these guys-¢‚Ǩ¬¶ theyre real weird. - Tony Rettman, Rettsounds.
