Dog Of Mystery Verses the Electrical Socket Pixes: (A Compendium)
From Aural Innovations #23 (April 2003)
This is an ultra-strange release. This is a compilation of tracks taken from 3 cassette releases from the mid-80s but John McBain (Ex-Monster Magnet and currently Wellwater Conspiracy) and Tim Cronin (Ex-Monster Magnet and current lightman for Monster Magnet). The CD is limited to 225 copies and comes in a DVD case with very special liner notes. There is a lot of guitar but none of it normal, always totally wacked and out of control and the percussion is very primitive and the sound effects made over the top. The lyrics are very bizarre and you really get the feeling these guys just got really stoned and went totally mad. Some will consider this to be pure genius, while others will think this is a total waste and who cares that a couple of guys got really wasted and made a lot of weird noises and lyrics. Check it out if you can and decide for yourself! I did.
