Epileptic Orgasm - "Immature Overtures EP" (Year Zero Records YEAR022) 1983/2013
The Bots evolved into Epileptic Orgasm, and made this magnum opus Lo-Fi
outsider punk cassette classic.
Imagine a world where Albert Ayler was in The Prats, and Free Rock
didn't mean Ash Ra Temple when Klaus Schulze was their drummer. (Great
stuff though that is/was)
Musically transcendental primitivisme , as the French intelligentsia
would pretentiously label this willfully idiotic cacophony. An
unthinking experiment that strips the musical DNA helix to just a couple
of amoeboid like strands, and says "Fuck Off" to those multicellular
organisms like Emerson lake and Palmer. Devolution in action, regressing
to a simpler existence where rules really were for fools.
If you threw a sexually repressed teenage and a bunch of musical
instruments in a hole, it might sound like this! The nearest musical
comparison I can think of is The Happy Flowers, but they obviously knew
what they were doing; or Half Japanese, but I think they 'Half' knew
what they were doing. Epileptic Orgasm sound like they haven't got a
clue what they were doing!
This is 100% Free music; free from ambition, intellectual handcuffs,
technical musical repression, the need to be liked, or entertain. The
sound of Freedom.
