Hair and Skin Trading Company - Psychedelische Musique (1995, Freek Records)

This British quartet included two ex-members of Loop (Neil McKay on bass and John Wills on drums). This project lasted little over three years. The first couple albums and EP were akin to MBV and The Skids but on this last outing, they left all conventional rock concepts behind and went in a Faust-like direction.

Drone, Avant-noise, Steve Reich style vocal loops, media cut ups, raw No Wave electric guitar, gnarly Dub-flavored drum patterns and classic Kraut synth knob-tweeking - Its all here and it makes for a great record full of accessible and charming experiments.
