Akatombo - Short Fuse
Short Fuse
electronica & experimental
av071 / hhr06
Ltd edition of 250. Joint release of alt.vinyl (UK) and Hand-Held Recordings of Hiroshima, Japan. Heavy 180gm Grey vinyl in pro printed sleeve with insert. This edition includes a CD with all the album tracks plus bonus extra recordings. Looped scattering electronic manipulated riffs tumble over each other in this latest Akatombo outing. Think echoes of dubstep against an industrial backdrop of tempered and twisted samples. Paul Thomsen Kirk continues to resist sonically and physically; ultimately the sound on Short Fuse breaks over the vinyl and cd format, a wave indifferent to obstacles and with a momentum both mechanical and animal. A soundtrack equally at home with late night driving, William Gibson literary imaginings and factory processes…essential.
