Wallace mailseries#9, ovvero un nuovo capitolo della linea minicd intimo intimo, confezionato in bustina da letterina in cartoncino. Wikipedia insegna, Oleo Strut - s/t Oleo Strut era una coffee house che stampava underground manifesti di contestazione alla guerra in Vietnam, - quindi niente a che fare con macchie di olio e strutto. - Un minicd, - eppure nasconde un supergruppo ita/fra di sette elementi, dove figurano in line-up Xabier Iriondo (oramai obiquo sul catalogo Wallace) oltre che akaBondage (vedi vecchia komarecensio) e Alessandro Stefana di Lumière Electrique. Le tre tracce formano una spaventevole cornice di suoni vibranti e in ronzio, rotti da percussioni 'concrete' e riverberi, a chiudere un ritratto di fantasmi, galvanizzante inferno e stridio di incubi da attiva fase rem, - quasi un Penderecki in stile minimale laptop, il tutto strumentale, - salvo voci rubate a trasmissioni da scatola nera o radio am. - Fossero state più di 3 tracce, sarebbe stato un lunghissimo trip.
Wallace mailseries #9, that is, a new chapter (next to the last) from inmost inmost minicd line in cardboard envelope. As Wikipedia states, Oleo Strut was a coffeehouse in early 70s running an anti-war press movement; - so, nothing to see with oil and lard (at least in italian it sounds similar..). A minidisc, but it features a super ita/french seven pieces line-up, like seeing Xabier Iriondo (kind of everywhere over Wallace's catalogue), besides akaBondage (read past komarecensio) and Alessandro Stefana from Lumière Electrique. The three tracks form a scary frame of vibrating sounds, sometimes buzzing, broken by 'concrete' percussions and reverbs, to draw an haunting painting of ghost, galvanizing hell and rancid noising nightmares dear to an active rem phase, - kind of a Penderecki in minimal laptop style, - all instrumental, - if not for some voices à la black-box or stolen from a AM transmission. - If it was more than three tracks, it would be a perfect trip.

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
