Billy Bao: Bilbo's Incinerator
Bilbo's Incinerator (w.m.o/r 17) by Billy Bao is gorgeously noisy rock-aktion by a Nigierian expatriate and two Spaniards (with connection to the great la Secta). Guitar, drums ans vocals create a most primitively disturbed, overtly political kind of punked-out spectrum-dodge that will appeal to anyone who is interested in what Billy calls '' the degeneration of rack 'n' roll''. The sound here (especially on the title track) is classic- in the direct line of high level scumbos everywhere. There's feedback, scuzz and insane trumping and screaming for all. You'd have to place this on a virtual level with The Afflicted Man, and that's one heckuva magnificent achievement.
