dead machines Plays Invasion of the Body Snatchers (LP, £11.50)label: Arbor
Michigan heavy domestic-electronic couple Dead Machines always create records that confuse and intrigue. They are the forefathers of broken gear / appliance / wind instrument basement jamming and have their niche dug deep. "Invasion" exists on the borders of existence - room ambience is present, but the sounds are totally alien. Twisting mixer feedback and found sound sources into a twisted collage of life outside the "pod": harsh and awakening, but at times giving way to the trance of the machine lull. Don't fall asleep. In an edition of 450 LPs with full colour pro-printed cardboard sleeves with art by John Olson.
