Chikmountain - _Porn on the Cob_
(Tachist Records, 2001)
by: Adrian Bromley (5 out of 10)
I almost threw this record out my window, seriously, What a truly irritating piece of music, annoying enough to give me a mild headache -- yet I am compelled to listen as the chaos unfolds. Not really rocket science here, folks, as Chikmountain dissect porn clips and mesh them with abrasive sound effects. Throw in a huge wad of nonsense like echoing screams, grinding machinery and incoherent babble and you have the general makeup of _PotC_. In some way -- and this may send the members of Chikmountian into a furious fit of excitement -- I can hear a bit of Neurosis within their music. Just a bit, but the influence is obviously there, even if they don't want to admit it. Neurosis are known for bringing together a vast wave of sounds and styles into a massive flow of energy and Chikmountain does that, but only in small sections of _PotC_. I guess someone out there will go ape-shit about all of this noise; I just can't really get too far into this before I feel like I need a break. Intense and annoying, Chikmountain do their best here and for that I salute them. Now where is the Advil?
