Porn (The Men Of) - _Experiments in Feedback_
(Small Stone, 2001)
by: Adrian Bromley (8.5 out of 10)
Who'd have thought there would be a band as fucked up (or nearly as fucked up) as Old Man Gloom, but here they are: Porn (The Men Of). For their debut offering on Small Stone (they used to be on now defunct label Man's Ruin), the band goes all out trying new sounds, vocal styles, guitar riffs and, of course, feedback. From three different versions of Motorhead's "I'll Be Your Sister" to a bizarre cover of Pink Floyd's "One of These Days" (parts assembled from four different versions) onto various tracks of pure feedback, singer/guitarist Tim Moss leads his band of sonic enthusiasts through some of the most creative spasms of feedback and chaos that has surfaced this year. Sure _Experiments in Feedback_ is out there in the most intense wild way -- as is OMG's stunning double offerings of _Seminar II: The Holy Rites of Primitivism Regression_ and _Seminar III: Zozobra_ -- but for those of us out there who dig bands like OMG, Keelhaul, Neurosis, and even Clutch, this is some good shit. Not everyone will be into what Porn (The Men Of) do musically, and I think that suits the band just fine. They obviously enjoy what they do and could care less about anyone who dislikes their expeditions into feedback. One of the most bizarre one-hour musical experiences you'll sit through in 2001.
