More Info

Nach der hervorragenden Mosquito Dream mit James Plotkin endlich was neues vom TV POW-Mtglied: transzendentale gong-artige drones, vermengt mit merkwrdigen Geruschen, sehr dicht und dunkel und amorph, drei lange Stcke....

Brent Gutzeit has performed around the world as a solo artist and a member of laptop/power glitch group TV Pow, in addition to running the Boxmedia label. He has made himself a key player and organizer in the improvised and laptop music community in Chicago. Gutzeit is also a member of the Chicago chamber/supergroup Everyoned.
In 1997, kranky released Mosquito Dream, Gutzeit's collaboration with guitarist Jim Plotkin (Khanate, Phantomsmasher). Drugmoney is the logical continuation of that album's gradual apportionment of sound. Originally released as a limited CD-R on Boxmedia and sold at a Chicago record store whenever Gutzeit needed money for, uh, um... recreation; the album will now be widely available.
If you have a short attention span, if you lack the patience to listen to music that progresses deliberately and in minute increments; then don't listen to this recording. Drugmoney is three tracks of viscous, slow forming drones. These are not cotton candy clouds of bliss-out fodder. No, these are battleship chains, slowly dragged along rusty steel plates and then dropped onto the ocean floor, passing by plumes of chemical dust.
Given attention Drugmoney has a mesmeric effect: hypnotic, entrancing and powerful, it reveals itself at a painfully slow pace, dragging you deep into its dark murky waters as if it were determined to slowly drown you. For Fans Of: James Plotkin, God, Scorn, ICE, zovietfrance. [press release}
