|3.||"Waitin 4 Electrocution"|
Excellent self titled album of material from the man Charles Manier on the Nation label which has finally surfaced after word of its release first appeared on distribution lists last year. You will probably know the name Charles Manier from the excellent Bang Bang Lover 12" issued by Ghostly back in 2002 and this album draws from an archive of material recorded around the same period at Ballard and Ridgewood-Cantullinix Studios in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Heavily influenced by the primitive sonics of Liaisons Dangereuses and the short lived CH BB project that preceded them, this ten track set swings viciously between grotty EBM, experimental wave sounds and proto techno movements with the C Side hogging "Wasps" a real centrepiece. Essential sonics for those that travel the path less ordinary.
