BLITZOIDS, THE: Complete (dbl CD)
Old hands will remember those strange LPs imported and distributed by Recommended back in the late '80s. A studio project, audibly influenced by the Residents, but not over-imitative, the Blitzoids mixed concrete- and tape-manipulations, noise, extended playing techniques and found recordings with iterative song-like structures and open architectures. Always interesting, sometimes scattershot, avoiding any obvious style, they moved fast from one idea to the next. At the time, they were pretty much out there on their own, and achieved only limited visibility, so it's good to see their work collected and reissued on this double CD.
