More Info

Re-release der ersten Verffentlichung von CHARALAMBIDES, die 1992 als Cassette-only erschien.

The debut release from Texas' favorite psychedelic voyagers... Originally self released as an ultra-limited cassette way back in 1992, it was later reissued on the band's own Wholly Other imprint in a much edited form. Here the original cassette track list and sequence is restored, minus two cover songs. A historic milestone in the story of the contemporary underground, as well as an extremely mind-melting dose of outsider drone/folk/psych in its own right. The duo of Tom and Christina Carter here managed to wrap their fingers and minds around a whole slew of sonic vibrations, while at the same time clearly charting their own low-key and unique course. Tapping into about every slant of damaged Texas exploration, this massive recording flows through haunting lo-fi slow motion folk, full-blown, fuzzed-out spacerock, beautiful outsider acid psych, fizzing drone experimentation, loose blues forms and plenty of higher-minded guitar improvisation, all with a certain shining wide-eyed bliss. And yes, Christina's voice was just as jaw dropping then as it is now... while worlds away from Charalambides recent outings on one level, those sonic tendrils trace a clear line back to the sweet seeds planted here...
