The first vinyl presentation of John Olson’s primitive basement techno unit, Henry and Hazel Slaughter’s “Endless Power Cycle” is 49 minutes of raw and crude rhythm-scaping noise-dub. Live mixer manipulations and beats of degradation from the Wolf Eyes and American Tapes founder. It’s about the roots here. The roots of solo sound experimentation in late night patch cable entanglements. The roots of South-Eastern Michigan musicians exploring electronics, which diverges into the distinct worlds of Detroit techno and circuit-bending outsider noise, brought back together here by this true home-state hero.
Limited to 250 records on bright yellow vinyl and packaged in screened and stamped jackets. $18 ppd (US)
