BAD ALCHEMY #92
LE SCRAMBLED DEBUTANTE feiert schon wieder überkandidelte Urstände, und Allan Zane (aka Exodus Z.-Polenta aka Sir Bear Trapper) hat diesmal, nein, nicht 'The Leg That Grooves Itself And Learns' oder 'The Dreg That Proves Itself And Yearns' als Überschrift gewählt für seine Direktübertragungen aus Wonderland, vielmehr The Egg That Moves Itself And Burns (ACK 1027). Looney Tunes-Wort- & Wuselsalat, ein Sack voller hoch gepitchter Micky Mäuse und gurgelnd verlangsamter Popanzerei, oft auch rückwärts geschraubt und verhackstückt mit mexikanischem Geschnatter, Pianopoesie, Radiosurfing, Wookie Sitcom. Auf LSD? Eher mit Speed auf der Überholspur eines Wild Mouse Roller Coasters! Nichts kann diesen abstrus collagierten Overkill mit anfangs zugleich überschnappenden und weich gekochten, dann lethargisierten oder im Traum geschmurgelten Zeitspuren und zuletzt tüpfelige, eine schnarrende Computerstimme umfunkelnde Seltsamkeit annähernd fassen, schon gar nicht in Worte. O Baby, uUu!
Le Scrambled Debutante is by now a group who is a firm fixture in the ranks of Attenuation Circuit and this time around consists of Exodus Z. Polenta (aka Sir Bear Trapper), Ms. La-Dee-Dada & Her Pet Eye Ov Tomato, David Abner and Thee Weenie Ov Tahini; surely there are some pseudonyms in there, I'd say. The previous review I wrote (in Vital Weekly 1047) is listed on the bandcamp page with this release and perhaps that has to do with the constant flow of releases in Circuit land, but maybe we are to believe that some of this is also a bit interchangeable? It is an impression that at least stuck with me. Le Scrambled Debutante is one of those 'bands', 'projects' if you will, which release quite a bit of music, and one doesn't have a proper clue as to how it was created, so one has to guess; when a lot of music sounds quite the same, and perhaps that previous already explained it all: "I have this vaguely romantic notion that they gather around a reel-to-reel tape machine and consume the right kind of spiritualia and do this all group musical weirdness using electronics, records, and what have you. As such this new work isn't much different than many of the other works I heard from LSD; there is a serious pile-up of sound debris on their machines (analogue or otherwise) and someone is blindfolded when doing the mix of this, moving through the various sections they recorded, but stays all one piece of music. Some of these sections are a bit long I would think and some rigorous editing could be in place to make it all a bit more surrealist and/or Nurse With Wound (take your pick), but my suggestion is to use a similar amount of psychotropia and bob's y'r uncle." In that sense this one is more of the same thing; still no bottles are open here, or joints are rolled, so perhaps it all sinks in a bit later?
